First Team Manager, Spencer Day gives the following update…
“I’m delighted to announce that, firstly the club has agreed terms with Perry Coles to secure his services until the end of next season. Perry came from Step 5 and has continually stated he wants to play for his local side Boro and he has developed into a quality Step 3 player who continues to improve.
“With players such our skipper CJ Fearn – who will be offered renewal terms and being under 24 – as well as a number of exciting prospects, I am confident that we continue to put out a quality side yet manage the clubs financials in the proper manner. The exposure to regular 1st team football for players such as Jack Barton and Aiden Upward as well as bringing through academy players is the positive and only way to go.
“I am also delighted to announce the signing of Andrew Sealey-Harris from Wolves for the rest of the season. Andrew is a 1st year pro and an exciting winger/striker who certainly made his introduction to the players known on Tuesday evening! The draw of quality players to Boro certainly is still strong and like other loan signings, we are discussing with parent clubs the probability of keeping the loan players for next season if all parties are happy, rather than just a number of short term loans.
“With the positive progression of Aiden (greatly supported by our goalkeeper coach, Keith Benjamin) I couldn’t guarantee Pat O’Flaherty (our loanee from AFC Bournmouth) game time so we have agreed to terminate that agreement. I’m in the market for a second keeper and am in negotiations with another Championship Club to secure one of their younger keepers to give Aiden cover and competition whilst good experience for the loanee.
“The one downside to using a number of released League players is that we won’t be able to consider Ambrose Ghanore for the near future at least. Ambrose is going on numerous League club trials and we wish him the best as he tries to get back into full time football but I have left the door open for him should he make himself available again for Boro.
“We travel to high flying Weymouth tomorrow with a reduced squad due to injuries, suspensions and flu but the feeling around the squad is excellent. Our home form has been superb with five wins and a draw out of six and it’s now time we get our away form back on track after some very poor performances, although we have been far more resilient this season away from home until recently.
“We couldn’t pick a harder place as our opponents were the best team we faced this season but we are all looking forward to the game after a really good couple of weeks.
“Then we welcome Hereford in what I’m sure will be a cracking game as they seek revenge and the opportunity to stop our fantastic home form.”
