Kerkar makes three

Salim Kerkar signed a 12 month deal at the Valley yesterday to join new-boys Lawrie Wilson and Jordan Cook. Kerkar should provide options on the left.

Without being harsh on Cook, we are still short of an experienced striker we need to really bolster our scoring chances and the critical holding midfielder is still missing. Sam Baldock may yet join upfront but no linkage yet to cement for the midfield. 

Lawrie Wilson is the most experienced and classiest act of those signed so far and I still fear that he wasn't signed for the stiffs, which makes a sale of asset Chris Solly look more likely. Obviously, I hope I am proven wrong. As things stand, I am confident we can hold our own. There is a lot to be said for continuity and with so little obvious change, we will largely need to pin our hopes on our League One charges being good enough.

Another manic week but I am off to Costa Rica Dorset tomorrow for a weekend wedding. Next week's schedule is another blur but will end on a high as my athletic tickets for the Olympics on Thursday have arrived and we will be up at Dawn's Crack on Friday to head off to Cyprus for a much needed holiday.
