TULIPS boss Andy Stanhope believes that he is only a couple of players short of the squad he wants to challenge for the United Counties League title.
It’s been a busy week for the manager with three of last season’s squad re-signing.
Striker Jamal Shahin, defender Shaun Baker and midfielder Jake Thompson all put pen to paper with left-footed dead ball specialist Ryan O’Loughlin (18), who has just been released from Conference club Grimsby Town.
Stanhope said: “I’m delighted Ryan has agreed to join us. He’s very good on the ball and can play in midfield or up front.
“We’re not far off what I want now.”
The Tulips get pre-season training under way next Thursday and Stanhope has extended an invitation to anyone who wants a trial to get in touch with the club.
