Saturday 29 June - Chris Seeby becomes a Green

The third new face to join the club this summer is 28 year old Chris Seeby, who joins from St Albans City.

Equally at home in defence or midfield, Chris began his career in the youth team at St Albans, and worked his way through the ranks, eventually playing in the Conference Premier with the club. He later had spells at Northwood and Slough Town, before returning to St Albans in November 2011, where he went on to take his total of appearances to well over 200, scoring 10 goals in the process.

As with Tony and George, we warmly welcome Chris to the club, and are sure he'll enjoy his time with us as well.

We are delighted to welcome Tony to the club, and hope that he enjoys his time with us.

We are pleased to announce that George McCluskey, has returned to the club on a permanent basis from Barnet.

George rejoins his older brother Carl, and we hope that he enjoys his second spell with us.

Howard, who joins former team mates Ryan Wharton and Greg Ngoyi at Clarence Park, joined the club last summer, and made 42 appearances, scoring 3 goals, and won the most improved player award.

The good news is that Gary is not currently expecting any other departures from the squad that finished the season with us, and they will begin pre-season training on Thursday evening.

We wish Howard every success at his new club, and thank him for his efforts over the past twelve months.
