John Smith is the eldest member of the first team, being twenty-eight years old, and is likely to be made club captain. There are four players in the first team who are sixteen, and seven who are still considered teenagers. Manager James Robinson was quick to praise his new first team – saying they had ‘quality to go far’.
I’m very happy with the recruits. They’re all local, very talent lads, and they can take our club far – and they have the quality to go far in the game themselves. We obviously need to make some signings, as we have a few shortages in the squad, like we have no natural left back or centre midfielder. But that takes nothing away from the lads, they’re all quality – I can’t wait to get to know them and win a few trophies with them.
I am very happy to be here, I want to make history with this club. It’s not like any other club I have played for, we have pressure, and we’re under the spotlight considering the people we play for and the press interest. But I can cope with that, I can’t wait to get started.
[James] Robinson looks like he’s a quality manager – he’s got real potential. His ideas for how to go about things. I think he is going to impress a lot of people that doubted him. I’m looking forward to playing with him.
