    His nickname should be either 'Old' or 'Ronald'

    This looks a reasonable bit of business and a signing for the next few years.
    Over 100 competitive appearances with 70 of those in the national league with Hereford and Telford. A good size in 6'3" and a player done his grounding climbing back up in his career.
    A Widdrington signing on the looks.

    Three signings already and it is only mid-May.

    This is exactly what needed to happen last year.

    Glad to see Robins on it so much.

    He was decent for us and well liked by the fans. When Wilder first brought him in he was inexperienced and a bit nervous having come from non-league but playing alongside more experienced defenders he blossomed, probably due to Wilder's man management, and was very good in our title winning season. This season Page didn't even want to give him a chance and following his sacking Edinburgh seemingly didn't want to risk him either.

    Hope he does well for you, he deserves it.

    So for CB now we have:

    Willis (if he stays)
    Turnbull (but can leave)
    Harries
    Rodders
    Stokes (if he signs)

    Still need an older head I think.

    Rumoured to be in the region of 300,000 .
    We've signed
    Doyle : league 2 winner
    McNulty : playoffs with Pompey
    McDonald : league 2 winner

    The spine of the team , new keeper would be great

    Absolutely superb business so far , how can you not start to get excited

    This is getting a bit much now. At this rate we'll have all the players signed and ready before the first match.

    Willis will be gone, got a year left so can walk for free if not sold now or peanuts in January when we will need to get a replacement. It's not good business sense to let his contract run down and he's very unlikely to resign or extend terms.

    Interesting that Rodders can also play left back so I assume he's left footed? Spells the end of Cian Harries who rodders is the more likely replacement.

    I also agree a experienced head needs adding to the back four. My money's on Scunthorpes Murfin.

    I don't know this guy but I like the sound of him and prepared to trust Robins/Tommy's judgement. Taking this as a positive for sure!

    I quite liked Nathan Clarke and believe he would have been that "lump" in L2.
    He had a couple of bad games toby fayre, but the rest I thought he was solid.
