As I have entered my 4th season with the Wood and the squad has changed a lot in that time, I think it's appropriate to give a short rundown of the current squad.
Arthur Okonkwo: Young and very raw. Has been a starter for two seasons but hasn't developed much in that time. I feel okay about fielding him in League one, but if we gain promotion sometime soon I'll have to find a new keeper.
Ryan Huddart: Our backup keeper. Plays well when called upon and never complains - the perfect backup.
Joseph Olowu: Our right sided CD. Vice captain and will be our captain from the next season. Physical player who knows his limits.
Daniel Ballard: Our left sided CD. Gets stuck in and does it well.
Zech Medley: A human tower. Very physical, always puts in a shift when needed.
Zak Jules: Our 4th choice central defender. Might leave after this season.
Tafari Moore: Our right back is one of the best players we have ability wise. Only 23 years old so I reckon he should be with us for a while.
Vontae Daley-Campbell: Has had loan spells for the past two seasons and both played and developed well. Well suited to back Moore up when needed.
Lewis Kinsella: Our current captain came to us when we were still in the Vanarama and has been great for us. Now he's complaining about squad depth and youth not developing enough (which is absolute nonsense). As he has some teams interested, I might cash in on him after this season. Depends on what is available for us to replace him though.
Tolaji Bola: Came in to displace Kinsella but never managed consistently good performances and has been reduced to a backup. He seems fine with that though so that is of no concern to me.
Robbie Burton: Plays as a B2B and is great at it. Our top goalscorer last season. Absolutely love him.
Matthew Smith: When he came to us in the Vanarama he wasn't considered good enough for that level and I considered loaning him out. I'm glad I didn't, as he has risen to the occasion each time we have gone up a level and now he has Championship teams making bids for him, which might mean that eventually our chairman will accept some stupid offer for him. Not indispensable for me though.
Connor Smith: Along with Huddart and Umerah, he was at the club when I took over. Very solid player, might be his last season for us though.
James Olayinka: Can play across the midfield. Very reliable backup and plays much better than his attributes would suggest.
Ben Cottrell: Very talented right winger, one of our best. Quick on the move and racks up the assists.
Kenny Vincent: On loan from QPR, came through our academy. Could become a very good Championship player, maybe even a solid lower table EPL player.
Jez Andrews: Came through our first youth intake and he's one of my favourites this save. Always developing and has started this season superbly.
Gabriel Maragh: Left wing backup to Andrews. Not good enough currently but will hopefully develop this season.
Ben Beechey: We're yet to see what he can do for us as he got injured shortly after he came to us this season. Have reasonably high hopes for him.
Reece Camacho: Academy player, has come far the last season and a half. A good player who will most likely be poached away from us in the next two years.
Josh Umerah: A very reliable backup striker who never complains.
Pierre Fonkeau: A good backup striker as well. Has the tendency to get moody.
Tran Trong Nghia, Matthew Banks, Peter Kershaw, Lee Stewart, Jamie Gooch and Danny Wright. Of these, Tran and Banks sometimes play for the first team.
