Hartley Wintney Squad Takes Shape as Pre-Season Begins
With training already fully underway as Hartley Wintney prepare for their first season at Step 3 in the Southern Premier Division, co-managers Anthony Millerick and Dan Turkington are finalising their squad. With pre-season friendlies due to start this week, the formality of putting signatures to paper has almost been completed, with the majority of last season's squad having now re-signed for the club.
Defenders Nick Hutchings, Louie Paget, Steve Noakes, Jack Ball and Liam Eagle have all signed, along with midfielders Tyron Smith, Joshua Webb, Luke Perkins and Jack French.
As already announced, Matt Evans has joined to replace the departed Dean Stow at right-back, and winger Claudio Herbert has joined from Salisbury City.
Popular striker and proven goalscorer, Ross Cook, has re-joined The Row after a spell with Thatcham Town; he joins last season's forwards, Jake Baxter and new club captain, Nic Ciardini.
The full squad is not yet complete, with players such as hugely popular 'keeper, Paul Strudley, still to make a decision on whether he is able to commit to playing next season. With the start of the new season just a few weeks away, the final places are expected to be confirmed very shortly.
