The 2012-13 season gets under way tomorrow with City away to League new boys Billericay Town. Player-manager Lee Hodges has named this squad of 12 and possibly 13.
TIM SANDERCOMBE, DAN GREEN, JAKE ASH, JOE BROAD, BEN ADELSBURY, ADAM KELLY, CODY COOKE, ARRAN PUGH, LES AFFUL, KIEFFER MOORE, BEN WILLIAMS, DANNY CARNE
CALRONE HALL (City reserve team player) agreed to sign last night, but this is still subject to League approval.
Lee agreed two loan signings from Plymouth Argyle this week, but overruled by League as these are contract players and under the terms of the continuing transfer embargo only non-contract players can be signed.
ANDY WATKINS (groin) and STEWART YETTON (hamstring) both out for tomorrow - "not 100 per cent yet and don't want to risk them ahead of such a heavy fixture schedule."
LEE himself is suspended for two matches, starting tomorrow.
LONG-TERM INJURY updates: MARCUS MARTIN, STEVE ADAMS and MARTIN WATTS all in training and progressing well. Marcus and Steve "possibly four to six weeks." Lee on Martin: "Don't want to put a date on it because he's been out for such a long time. We're talking months rather than weeks." (NB: none of these players is yet signed up as part of the squad, which is limited to 16 while transfer embargo continues.)
TWO HOME MATCHES next week, against Havant & Waterlooville on Tuesday, August 21, kick-off 7.45 pm, and Salisbury City on Saturday, August 25, kick-off 3 pm.
