Brentwood Town manager Ian Bent is close to finalising his squad for the 2010-11 season after registering twenty players with the Eastern Region League at the initial sign-up stage.
Among the list are five new players with defenders Nicola Allen and Jess Tuffen joining the Blues from Southern Region League Premier Division side Slough and East Thurrock United of the Essex County Women's League First Division respectively. Meanwhile, the team's attacking options are boosted with the arrivals of Nikita Whinnett from SEEVIC's Academy side, Stacey Turner from Chelmsford City and Toni Brown, who joins the squad after spending much of last season cheering Town on from the touchline.
Boss Bent commented: "I'm delighted with the additions we have managed to secure so far this season; a group of us have worked hard behind the scenes all summer trying to bring new players into the squad to help us in our first season in the fourth tier of women's football in this country. Hopefully the summer recruiting hasn't finished yet and I will continue to work hard to put together the strongest squad Brentwood Town Ladies has ever had."
However, it is not just incoming players at Brentwood this season, and the Club is disappointed to see two of last year's squad leave over the summer. Winger Kerry Mills has left due to work commitments having netted six times in just nine appearances during 2009-10, whilst youngster Ashley Debnam has decided to take a break from football completely after playing her own part in Town's promotion campaign with five goals in 21 games.
"On behalf of everyone at the Club, I would like to thank both players for their efforts last season in helping the club achieve promotion to the Premier Division and I would like to wish both individuals well for the future. Both players are always welcome back at any time and I hope both stay in touch with the club," Bent remarked.
The coach is looking forward to the start of the new term and is eagerly anticipating the big kick off on August 15th away at Arlesey Town:."After last season, everyone is raring to go again and if the players can show the same levels of effort, commitment and team spirit then a very exciting season may lie ahead," he said. "We are working hard in training to prepare everyone for the start of the campaign and the fortnight will be vital.
We have games coming up against Tottenham Hotspur [on Thursday 5th August] and West Ham United Res [Sunday 8th August] and these friendlies will be used to prepare the squad for the Arlesey game."
