Tucker says new signings are a priority

Talbot manager Tommy Sloan was in top form at the recent AGM as he highlighted his signing policy for this season. So far 13 players have been signed up with the manager looking for at least another four. Tommy told those present that he was looking for players who would challenge for positions and although he admitted he had some irons in the fire he remained tight lipped about who they were.

With holidays and a couple of players with niggling injuries it looks like Talbot’s opening pre-season games could involve a few trialists. When asked about the signing of Danny Boyle the manager replied that he was in the same mould as Mark Campbell and will be a big asset to the club. He also mentioned new keeper Brian Hewitt who he described as a good keeper with plenty of experience. He should be a great mentor for big Andy Leishman as Tucker pointed out it was himself that was trying to coach Andy. “Brian has bags of experience and played with a lot of top clubs, he is definitely a good signing.

Talbot take on Newtongrange this Saturday with a 2pm kick off.
