Apologies if covered elsewhere but Alex Whitmore has signed for Fylde and JJ Hooper for Wrexham.
Conference the correct level for both maybe?

I think Whitmore has potential, problem for him I imagine was Jolley could not tell him he was going to be first choice, will be at the top end of the Connie with Fylde you would imagine so may put himself in the shop window for a potential football league return.

Hooper, one of those players who needs absolutely everything to be right and then have no pressure at all (hence the FGR hat-trick he scored after we were safe), so probably yes.

Think Wrexham may not be the best fit unless he hits the ground running...expectant fans desperate to escape the conference....could be quick pressure on him there.

Fylde are paying pretty big wages so Whitmore is probably on a good whack. At least as much as he was earning here and I'd imagine he'll do a decent job at that level.

Conference is probably Hooper's correct level so he'll most likely do well for Wrecsam. Would be good if he can link up with Pearson to drag them bag into the League - the opposite of the Grim Reaper!

I'm really surprised at this.  Surely Bromley will have wanted to keep him?  And didn't he want to stay down south?  Wrexham's a strange fit for him.

Personally I wish we'd kept Whitmore, but here's presuming that either MJ has an improvement up his sleeve, or he thinks Pollock will step up.

Bromley did want to keep him but they probably aren't paying what Wrexham are. Similar position to us losing in the playoffs and fans expecting promotion so paying over the odds. Probably on a ridiculous 1 year deal in the hope that he can score a bunch of goals and get a fat goal bonus.

I always felt that Hooper had the ability and the potential to be a half decent player. Sadly he never seemed to have the application or the desire to exploit that.
