Aldershot Town

England C winger Jordan Roberts could be leaving the Recreation Groud amid interest from Football League clubs.

Shots boss Barry Smith admits he faces an uphill battle to keep hold of the 21-year-old, who has been offered a new deal.

Smith told the Aldershot News & Mail: "There is interest but Jordan is a very important part of our squad and I want him to stay. "We’ve offered him a deal for next season but we can only offer what we can afford. Whether it’s enough to keep him here only time will tell."

First-team coach Matt Gray has left the club by mutual consent at the end of his contract.


Josh O'Keefe, who made three appearances for Chester FC last season, has joined Alty following his release from Kidderminster Harriers.

The 26-year-old midfielder, whose loan spell with the Blues was curtailed by injury, was previously at Hereford United.

Alty boss Lee Sinnott said: "I know all about his history, and it includes having an eye for goal. Looking at areas we need to improve on, I’d say he ticks a lot of boxes."


Liverpool-born midfielder Paddy Lacey has been tipped to have a big impact next season as the Bluebirds prepare to switch from part-time training to full-time.

Barrow boss Darren Edmondson told the North West Evening Mail: "I think Paddy is growing all the time as a player – he’s maturing.

"He’s got that edge in his game, but you need that. All footballers that are successful have got an edge. I think that spreads through a team and the way he conducts himself in training is also exceptional."

Boreham Wood

Combative midfielder Sam Cox believes Wood will be able to hold their own next season, especially if the club follow through on their plan of turning professional.

"There is a lot of talent in this group and we have quite a few lads in the team already who have Football League experience," he told the Borehamwood & Elstree Times.

"So I believe, 100 per cent, that we can do well next season. It will be a challenge but I am in no doubt that we have enough."

Braintree Town

New manager Danny Cowley expects to retain almost all of last season's squad after offering new terms to 18 players, including key men Kenny Davis, Simeon Akinola and Dan Sparkes.

Three players leaving Cressing Road are Alan Massey and Ryan Peters, who have followed former boss Alan Devonshire to Maidenhead United, and Dan Walker.


Mark Goldberg insists he will not need to significantly strengthen his squad for Bromley to be competitive next season.

"There is no doubt in my mind that the core, the strongest 11 or 12, are more than capable of competing at Conference level," the manager told the News Shopper.

"I feel as though, with 46 games and all the travelling involved, we probably need to bring in about six or seven new players to add competition."

Cheltenham Town

Gary Johnson has added midfielders Jack Munns and Kyle Storer to his squad. Ex-Tottenham youngster Munns, 21, impressed the Robins boss in a trial match.

Storer, 28, spent the second half of last season at Wrexham having previously had a three-and-a-half year stint at Kidderminster Harriers, where he captained the team.

"When I met Kyle I realised how hungry he is to get into the Football League and he is looking for a manager and a club to give him that opportunity," said Johnson.


England C midfielder Josh Payne has joined the Spitfires from Vanarama National League rivals Woking.

The 24-year-old was a standout for the Cards last season and had been linked with a move into the Football League.

Midfielder Ben Strevens and forward Yemi Odubade have committed to the club for next season while left-back Michael Green has penned a two-year deal.

Forest Green Rovers

Rovers have re-signed experienced defender Darren Jones and brought in forward Delano Sam-Yorke, both on 12-month deals.

Centre-back Jones, 31, already has 165 appearances for the Nailsworth club under his belt and arrives from Newport County. He has also had spells at Aldershot Town, Hereford United, Shrewsbury Town and AFC Wimbledon.

Sam-Yorke spent last season on loan at Lincoln City from Cambridge United, who the 26-year-old joined from Basingstoke Town.

FC Halifax Town

Shaymen boss Neil Aspin has exercised the options on defender James Bolton and midfielder Jake Hibbs for the 2015-16 season.

Ex-Winsford United forward Dominic Marie has been invited to attend pre-season training to try and secure himself a deal.

Meanwhile, forward Richard Peniket has undergone an operation on his injured knee and hopes to be back in action around Christmas time.

Kidderminster Harriers

Gary Whild has returned to his former club Redditch United to bring in 24-year-old midfielder Calvin Dinsley.

"He's technically gifted and a very good passer of the ball, and without trying to put him in a bracket, he does remind me a bit of Jack Byrne when Jack first came here," said Whild.

Kiddy have taken up options on the contracts of Ahmed Obeng, Jamie Spencer and Tyrone Williams.

Lincoln City

The Imps have completed a hat-trick of signings with Matt Rhead, Lee Beevers and Greg Tempest moving to Sincil Bank.

Powerful centre forward Rhead arrives from Mansfield Town, as does experienced defender Beevers, who made 175 appearances for Lincoln between 2005 and 2009.

Left-sided midfielder Tempest, 21, joins from Notts County having had a successful loan spell at Boston United last term.


Ex-Chester City favourite Paul Carden has signed a new contract to remain as Sandgrounders boss with chairman Charlie Clapham praising the impact he has had since replacing Gary Brabin as manager.

Carden said: "I am looking to build for next season. The contract shows commitment and desire from both sides."

Tranmere Rovers

Steven Jennings has penned a new one-year contract with the Prenton Park club and wants to 'right the wrongs' of the past couple of seasons.

The midfielder has made 288 appearances for Rovers and rejoined them last October for a third spell.

Jennings said: "I want to help Tranmere get back in the league and I want to give the fans something to cheer about because they deserve it for the support they've given us.

"Tranmere has been a massive part of my career and I’ll do everything I can to help the club return to where it belongs."

Welling United

Kieron St Aimie and Ben Jefford have committed to the Wings for the coming campaign.

Forward St Aimie, 26, impressed with his performances under Loui Fazakerley at the back end of the season while 20-year-old defender Jefford struggled with injuries and was loaned to Ebbsfleet United but returned to help the Park View Road club see off the threat of relegation.


Last season's leading scorer Scott Rendell has signed a new deal with Garry Hill's men, keeping him at Kingfield Stadium for the 2015-16 campaign.

Goalkeeper Jake Cole, defender Mark Ricketts, midfielders John Goddard and Keiran Murtagh, and forward Giuseppe Sole has also agreed terms.


Gary Mills has made his first signing as Dragons boss with the capture of left-back Sean Newton and confirmed his interest in bringing midfielder Lee Fowler back to the club.

However, he has decided against giving new contracts to defender Neil Ashton and captain Dean Keates, who has taken up a role with the Glyndŵr Wrexham Football Academy.
