John aims to finish the job

As reported in the Non League paper

John Brough believe Cirencster Town are well equipped tpo make a t least one step up the pyramid as he prepares for his first full season in charge.

The Centurions were in fine form before last term was brought to a premature end, signing off with a 4-0 home win over Larkhall Athletic and well placed for an assault on the Southern League Division One South play-offs.

"As a club it's geared up to be promoted to the league above, if not the league above" Brough, who took over last December said. "That is one of the reasons I took the job in the first place and with the structures we have, we to be in and around it to say we've had a good season. It won't just happen though and we to work hard, as the lads have done sin the seasons we've had so far.

Brough has seen left-sided defender Will Tunnicliff depart for Yate Town, while Yate skipper Nick Pear and for Evesham midfielder Archie Haskayne have both changed their mind after initially agreeing to sign.

Goalkeeper Lewis Clayton has switched to Evesham United, but new number one Alex Harris was a key member of the Cinderford Town side Brough led to the title in 2015-16. Forward Toumani Sidibe has left after finishing his studies at Hartpury College and returning home to Birmingham.

Ellis Dunton and Aidan Bennett, who both enjoyed long spells with the club before joining Fairford Town last season, are both back for pre-season training.

Bennett scored the only goal of their friendly win over Stonehouse Town two weeks ago and also netted in the 3-0 win at Fairford, with Roger James helping himself to the other two goals in a comfortable victory.

Brough has snapped up midfielder Archie Brennan, who was released by Cheltenham Town over the summer, while ex-robins scholars Tom Handley and Lee Llewelyn has also come on board.

Brough is also looking at former Slimbridge, Bishops Cleeve and Cinderford midfielder Ben Hands and ex North Leigh winger James, who gave him a nudge with his double against Fairford.

Forward Josh Parson and centre–back Shayne Anson are both fit again after recovering from injuries.

"We've had 26 lads at most training session, which has been pleasing." Brough said. "I wanted to retain most of the lads from last year and add a few extras because we were top of the form guide going into lockdown, we need to replicate that from day one and hopefully we'll be up there again."
