Great signing... Big lad who likes to get forward and has a sweet right foot.

Is that it now ?

Good to see the right back issue solved. It's been a problem for at least a couple of seasons now. I know Fryatt did ok there, but he's much better at centre back.

@officialKLtown boss Ian Culverhouse is delighted to add defender @CameronNorman95 to his squad. Culverhouse said: "He's an exceptional young footballer. He's a good size and has had a good grounding at Norwich City. His arrival fills another part of the jigsaw for us."
On more signings Culverhouse said: "There could be another one. You want all the sweets in the candy store, but I know there's a limit."

Maybe another in ?  We seem to be really going for it this season.  Stephen Cleeve certainly is not afraid to put his money where his mouth is.   All credit it to him.  With a first team squad standing at 18 ( Plus x number in the Reserves as back up) adding one, no one can be sure of their place ( Street apart maybe). Does this mean the players not getting a place in the 16 will go into Backie's Reserves, go out on loan, or be released ?

Can anyone put together lists of First Team Players and Reserve Team Players so that we can see where there are possibilities for potential fringe 1st's to be used in the Ressies and who in the Ressies may have to make way.

Kieron Shipp must be disappointed as he seemed to be progressing into a first team player. He will no doubt get some opportunity during the season though.

Think he is injured Paddy, so may have to wait a little longer.  I am sure once fit he get his chance at some point.  Certainly one for the future.

Shippy went off injured when playing for the ressies on Saturday. Hopefully not too serious.
