Nice start, I will be following m8
January: Exciting prospects
So we have our new owner, new kit and many new players. We'll start with the transfers first:
Our first signing of the January transfer window was a French goalkeeper called Nicolas Pichon, i bought him on a free after he was released from Stade Rennais FC (CA: PA: )
We signed another French player called Sid Ahmed Behilil, I bought him on a free after he was released from AC Arles-Avignon (CA: PA: )
And then when our new owners joined we signed the big players:
Craig Gordon: He was released from Sunderland last season due to continuous injury problems but hopefully he can find top form again with us (CA: PA: )
Matthew Bates: Another player who was released last season, but by Middlesborough. We quickly snapped him up and hopefully he can help us throughout his future years with us. (CA: PA: )
Michael Lumb: Lumb was released by Zenit St. Petersburg a few days after we bought him so I thought with my weak left-back depth I thought I'd add class to the squad. (CA: PA: )
Julien Cécout: Another French player (We're becoming Newcastle now :P) his best position is right-back but I prefer him in the defensive midfield role personally. He was released last season by Tours FC. (CA: PA: )
Jonathan Obika: A striker which I bought from Spurs (reserves) for 35k, he has had many spells on loan with different clubs, mainly Yeovil. Only 22 years old (CA: PA: )
Laurent Bonnart: Another French player, very versatile, he can play either left and right side of defence. He was released by LOSC Lille this January transfer window. (CA: PA: )
Sébastien Le Toux: An American striker who was released by New York Red Bulls at the start of this season after scoring 14 in 30 games in the previous season. (CA: PA: )
Bébé: Bought on a free this January from Man Utd (great profit there Man Utd) and although he is a winger I am looking to play him up-front. (CA: PA: )
Pavel Horvath: This is a player I buy every single save, he is extremely consistent and although he is 37 he is well worth the 90k I paid for him. (CA: PA: ).
Tresor Kandol- Free
Will Hatfield- Alfreton- Free
Peter Murphy- Free
Sam Sodje- Barrow- Loan
A very good performance in the league, we were unlucky to be knocked out of the JPT in the semi-final, but that is an irrelevant competition.
Still sitting in first, 27 points ahead of 2nd place.
Also Accrington Stanley have unveiled their new shirts for the 2013-2015 seasons with a new sponsor of mineral water company Buxton and their Italian based brand Macron.
*Thanks to Louis. O for making these amazing kits, cheers
