Given the fact that we already have a very good squad for this division and one which is fairly balanced, I didn't really feel the need to make a lot of signings. I quickly decided that I was only going to bring in a couple of loanees as this would help to save on the wage budget. There were two players that I had in mind, both currently loanees at Prenton Park in real life but not present on the game.

My first signing was Nottingham Forest striker Gerry McDonagh, one of the two players currently on loan at Tranmere in real life. The 19 year old Irishman spent last season on loan at Wrexham and then Cambridge. During his time at Wrexham, he made 21 appearances and scored 5 goals. I'll be the first to admit that this isn't the best record but from what I've seen of him, he has potential. I honestly think that in a better team he can shine and hopefully I can bring the best out of him.
Dylan Mottley-Henry has been setting Prenton Park alight in real life so he was a man I definitely had a bring in. How much he will play for me though is a mystery at the moment as he'll be fighting the likes of Larnell Cole and Jake Kirby for a starting place. With stats of 16 in pace and acceleration, Dylan has the potential to scare opponent just with his pace alone! He could be one hell of an impact sub if I decide to use him that way.
My third loan signing was Charlie Scott from Manchester United. Able to play at both right back and centre back, Charlie's versatility is invaluable to a side like us. My thinking at the moment is that Charlie will slot into the right back role with Adam Buxton moving over to the right, however that will depend on the performances of the centre backs.
Callum Gribbin is another loan signing from Manchester United. Callum is a centre midfield player whose stats make him a great signing at this level. I wasn't originally planning on signing a central midfield player but an incident in September forced my hand (I won't spoil what it is).
Arguably my best signing of this window is Welsh midfielder Chris Dawson on a free transfer. According to my scouts, this guy should be playing in League Two, maybe even League One. When I offered him a deal, I didn't think we had a chance of signing him but he's agreed and will fit perfectly into the deep lying playmaker role.
My final signing was Aleksandar Gogic on a free transfer. During our pre-season campaign, I noticed that the only backup we had to Scott Davies was young Welsh keeper Luke Piling, who is nowhere near ready to be playing in the first team. It was then that one of my scouts mentioned Gogic and I decided to sign him based on his recommendation.
