Who have we got locked down, who do we want locking down and who are we looking for upgrades on?

I unfortunately haven’t made many games this season but have listened to a fair few but a run down is always useful to have from those who get to most games

Basically we've got Russell, Pearson, Longe-King, Holahan, McAtee and Maguire-Drew under contract.  Then the lads who got first-year pro deals the other week.  4 of them I think.

I'm quite disappointed we have allowed key players contracts to run down again. I didn't expect that of the new owners. I'm sure there must be reasons the likes of Ben Fox, Michee Efete and Ryan Taylor's deals have been allowed to expire. But I can't understand it. Even if it was a two tier contract depending on what division we are in next season, surely not beyond the wit of man?

Put it this way, if I was Fox, Efete or Taylor I would have instructed my agent to see what's out there some time ago. It's their livelyhoods, how they pay their mortgages.

From what I understand, that isn't the case.

Deals have already been offered to players who they want to stay but Hurst doesn't want anything publicly known until after the season ends.

We have a one year option on Efete which I believe the club have already exercised.

I would keep Scannell and Sousa over than that the list is about right

I think Scannell is worth keeping. he should be available to play some time in the new year and could well be an asset in next seasons run in.

Fair enough, thanks for the reply.

If he's snapped his achilies tendon then I'm sorry but at 32 he'll do well to come back from that and play professionally at all and recovery usually no less than nine months. Best wishes to him.

Wanting to keep Scannell is driven by sentiment. We're not in position to be utilising a salary on someone who could struggle to play next season regardless of the quality of his performances in the past few weeks. I think Max Wright will leave as well. Crocombe is an interesting one I think. I think it's clear Battersby is out number 2 for next season so does Hurst see Crocombe as good enough to be Number 1?
