Preview: Two join ahead of trip to Beveree Stadium

Two players join the Rebels ahead of tomorrow's trip to Hampton & Richmond.

08/02/19


Tomorrow we make the short trip to Hampton & Richmond for our next game in the National League South, hoping to come back to Arbour Park with the three points.

In terms of squad news, it is highly unlikely that Guy Hollis will be fit after a slight knee injury in training last night, however we will make a decision on that tomorrow.

Manny Williams will get another game with Basingstoke Town, whilst Nathan Smart will continue with Hartley, however both are likely to come back into the squad on Tuesday.

We will also welcome Lee Togwell, Chris Flood and Mark Nisbet back after all were unavailable for the Billericay game.

We can announce the signing of Tommy Wood, a 20-year-old striker from AFC Wimbledon who we have signed on an initial month-long loan.

Having grown up in Hillingdon and now living in Hayes, Tommy spent three years up at Burnley doing his scholarship, before signing a professional contract with the Dons at the back end of last season. He is a big strong lad who trains with the first team daily and is highly thought of at the club.

Another signing on National League forms is 20-year-old Windsor striker Dan Roberts, who has been scoring plenty of goals in the Hellenic League this season and also played a huge part in their run to the last 16 of the FA Vase. He impressed us in a showpiece game at Arbour Park in May last year, and we have kept tabs on him since.

Dan will remain a Windsor player until the end of the season, and with the blessing of manager Micky Woodham we will involve him when appropriate. This enables us to get a good look at him, and will give us a better idea of whether he can bridge the three division gap, however he has electric pace with an eye for goal, and may offer us a different option to what we already have.

With Windsor not playing this weekend, Dan will form part of our squad, and this has helped enable Manny to get an important 90 minutes under his belt, however Dan will be back with Windsor on Tuesday.

We urge the fans to travel in numbers tomorrow and get behind the lads at the Beveree Stadium.

Squad from: Jack Turner, Josh Jackman, Sean Fraser, George Wells, Mark Nisbet, Guy Hollis, Sam Togwell, Warren Harris, Louie Soares, Matthew Lench, Simon Dunn, Lee Togwell, Ben Harris, Chris Flood, Tommy Wood and Dan Roberts.
