Clarkson explained that he expects a number of other new signings by the end of next week, including two from Spain. “I am very close to completing my squad. Five players from last season's squad, Josh Concanen, Josh Searle, Tom Gardner, Alex Faux and Chris Wright have indicated they are willing to commit to next season” He explained he was looking forward to the challenge but was very tired after a 23 hour drive from Spain. “ Give me a week and I will be right up to speed” Exciting times indeed for the loyal Tivvy supporters.
