Paul Holleran has taken a major step in shaping his squad for the 2015/2016 campaign by clinching the signing of pacy frontman Rob Ogleby.
Manager Paul Hollerans squad is starting to take shape with defenders Connor Gudger and James Mace both commiting their future to the Brakes for Season 2015-16, and added to the capture of goalkeeper Tony Breeden from Solihul Moors provides encouraging signals of defensive stability for the forthcoming campaign. Gudger joined the club from Worcester City mid-way through last season and quickly made a favourable impression at left back whilst former Player of the Season Mace who enters his sixth season at the club offers versatility at full back or centre back.
Drainage work is being carried out on the dugout side of the pitch this long weekend at the NWG under the guidance of Groundsman Idris Elms. We really could do with some help on Saturday and Monday from 10.30am onwards on each day. Tasks include removal of soil from pitch plus infill of 3" bands with gravel and sand/soil mix. Even if you can only give a couple of hours your efforts will be greatly appreciated. Don't leave it to others. Most of the heavy work is being done by machinery so come on down and help out. Refreshments provided.
