DER­REN MARTIN reck­ons an in­flux of lo­cal tal­ent can pro­pel Frim­ley Green to their high­est-ever fin­ish.

Martin has been one of the busiest man­agers in the trans­fer mar­ket this summer and admits he would be dis­ap­pointed if the Recre­ation Ground side did not achieve a top-six fin­ish.

“I’m very pleased with what we’ve done over the summer,” Martin said. “We started early and have had a core of around 30 play­ers train with us ev­ery ses­sion since mid-June.

“We lost a lot of points at the back end of last sea­son with in­juries and the fix­ture sched­ule, but if we can learn from that then top six is not out of our reach.”

Martin has added a whole host of new names to his squad, in­clud­ing Cam­ber­ley Town cap­tain Dale Webb, Bad­shot Lea de­fender Cameron Blackie and Ever­s­ley trio Paul An­drews, Brad Cann and Dar­ryl Blox­ham, as well as num­ber of Academy play­ers from Farn­bor­ough and Basingstoke Town.

He is also hop­ing to clinch the sign­ing of ex-Alder­shot Town goal­keeper Luke Wil­liams if noth­ing comes of his trial with Here­ford United.
