Rocks boss Blake is working tirelessly to firm up potential signings to complete what has already been a hugely productive recruitment campaign. 

Former Rocks ace Tommy Block became the latest player to join the ranks last week, hot on the heels of deals being done to retain Craig Robson, Calvin Davies, Harvey Whyte, Lucas Pattenden, Ben Anderson, Dan Gifford, Matt Burgess, Spencer Spurway, Ryan Hall and Jasper Mather. 

Now Blake is cautiously considering his options on who to bring in to add to his squad — and after a flurry of captures he is happy to be patient. 

He said: “We obviously had a busy and very productive period tying up players we believe can stand us in good stead for next season so now it’s a bit of a waiting game in terms of additional players coming in.

“We’re not the only club out there looking at these players so we need to be a bit patient but at the same time making our representations clear. 

“We have a very strong nucleus and now some fine tuning is needed and behind the scenes we are toiling away looking to make things happen.”

Blake has added that the Rocks will soon announce a list of pre-season friendly matches with the hope that Portsmouth, newly promoted to the Championship, will visit Nyewood Lane for what has become an annual game. 

Meanwhile, supporters and businesses have been reminded that there is still time to enter the club’s sponsors’ draw. The sponsors’ draw date is Thursday 27th June and the event will take place at the club’s events venue at Seasons, Nyewood Lane.

Entry prices are £150 for one entry; £250 for two and £300 for three. Companies can purchase multiples of three if they wish.
