NEW Witton Albion boss Gary Finley will be making signings, but can't say when.
He introduced himself to the squad via two rigorous training sessions last week, but could not alter Albion's habit of under performing in the defeat at Gateshead.
'It wasn't the best of starts,' he admitted.
He has not - at least not yet - threatened them with drastic changes.
'I have spoken to quite a number of clubs about players and there are a few players in the pipeline.
'One or two are on contract so the financial situation comes into it.
'We are looking to strengthen all areas, but don't forget we have only seen one game. It is not a case of seven out and seven in.
'No-one wants to leave. The players are staying loyal to Witton, but whether we think they are good enough is another thing.
'We shall be making an assessment this week, but expect the first signing when you see him.'
Finley and assistant Gary Brabin were in charge of their second game last night against league leaders Workington and relied on the same set of players.
A new face or two may be included in Saturday's line-up at home to Frickley Athletic on Saturday (3pm). Rob Hopley, the 19-year-old Middlewich Town striker, however, won't be one. Albion have been beaten to his signature by his home town club Winsford United.
Finley added: 'First impressions? We worked hard and played well in the first-half, but we defended badly for both the goals.
'We switched off and that was disappointing. It is something that will be addressed this week.'
BARNTON boss Nick Armitage, one of 20 candidates beaten to the Witton vacancy by Finley, is interesting Congleton Town.
'I have spoken to them and told Barnton up front what is happening,' said Armitage.
Impressed by their performances and demeanour in the two UEFA Regions Cup groups this season the FA have asked Barnton to represent England again at the home internationals at the Isle of Man at Easter.
'I would not want anything to jeopardise that job, so I shall need to talk to the FA,' added Armitage.
That tournament adds to Barnton's logistical problem - already there aren't enough Saturdays left in the season to accommodate their remaining games, even if they lost every cup tie from now on.
