Goalie signed

There's increasingly few secrets in the world of football transfers. The rumour-mill has had us connected with West Ham squad keeper, Stephen Henderson, for a couple of weeks. Henderson is a 26 year old who has been loaned out and played second fiddle throughout his short career. We were told he would be signing on loan for 12 months but his contract with the Hammers was up and he's committed for three years.

He will be hoping for more match time at the Valley but will find Nicky Pope in just the same place. Bottom-line is we needed a third keeper and probably more competition for Pope than Dillon Phillips can yet offer. Henderson cited coach Ben Roberts as a big motivation for the move having worked with him at Yeovil.

I think that just about wraps up our transfer business. I had hoped for another left footed left-winger but I am guessing Bob is going to go with Jackson and maybe try one or two of the others if that doesn't work.
