New U23s’ coach Mark Hawthorne was delighted at the response for last Saturday’s first trial match of the summer, with more than fifty players registering their interest in joining the club for next season. “I was pleased with the standard of players that attended” the former Crawley midfielder said. “I’ve already pushed some of them forward to pre-season and will be holding another trial day in a couple of weeks’ time, when we’ll be inviting some of them back along with a number of players we’ve not been able to look at yet, before concentrating on putting the squad together. We’ve already got a couple of friendlies lined up so things are progressing well.”
