Maidenhead United boss Devonshire keen to strike the right balance with summer transfer business

With three more players added to the roster, including the return of fan favourite Josh Kelly, Maidenhead United boss Alan Devonshire is pleased with the way his squad is shaping up for the new campaign.

On Monday, the Magpies confirmed the arrivals of George Wells, Dan Sparkes and Josh Kelly, the latter of which renewed his contract at York Road after initially being set for a move away.

With the Magpies due to begin pre-season preparations from next week, Devonshire will be keen to figure out what his best 11 looks like for when the start of the season begins.

“I’m happy with what we’ve brought in so far and there’s a very good balance to the squad now so I’m pleased,” said Devonshire.

“Dan Sparkes has come in and we haven’t really had a natural left footed player since Harry Pritchard and Sam Barratt. We’ve also signed George Wells who is a lefty and is very good on the ball. We’ve done well to get more balance in the side by signing them two.

“I’ve now got a total of 17 or 18 players so it’s down to them to fight for a place in the side. They’ve got to fit into what we want to play and how we want to play. But overall I’m happy with what we’ve got in at the moment and hopefully we can get started on time but only time will tell.

“It’s our 150th year anniversary so hopefully we can have a good season.”
