Hucknall Town manager Tommy Brookbanks has outlined his squad for the coming season. Town have agreed a deal with their creditors, and now Brookbanks can now concentrate on team affairs.
What is surprising is the list of players mentioned on the HTFC website. Great negotiating from the manager as no less than 22 players appear to have been either retained or brought in – on a well published playing budget of only £500 per week!
The only problem may be how to keep some of these players happy if they aren’t getting first team football. AFC Hucknall did provide football for “squad” players last season, but even though AFC are now classed as a step 7 team due to restructuring of the CMFL, having to play at this level saw a lot of the “squad” players decide to leave Watnall Road last season.
