BRAINTREE Town boss George Borg says he is still looking to add more players to his ranks ahead of the new National League South season.

The Iron manager has been busy reshaping his squad in preparation for the new campaign and has been running the rule over a number of trialists, in the club’s opening three friendly matches.

Borg took a further look at his players in Braintree’s 2-1 friendly win at Thurlow Nunn Premier Division side Newmarket Town on Tuesday night – and says he is keen to add more new faces.

Borg said: “I’ve signed a few players – I’m still three or four short on making the squad.

“I just want to use all of the players that I’ve got.

“I’ve still got two or three lined up who aren’t with us, at the minute.

“Hopefully they’ll be with us in the next couple of weeks.”

Braintree’s win at Newmarket was their first of pre-season, following previous games at Heybridge Swifts and Stevenage, managed by former Iron favourite Alex Revell.

The Iron lost 3-2 at Swifts last weekend, following on from a 5-1 defeat at League Two outfit Stevenage.

“Heybridge scored a couple of first-half goals over the top which we made me realise that I have a little bit of work to do on my defence,” said Borg.

“Apart from that, we absolutely dominated the game.

“In the first half against Stevenage, they were all players that I’ve got and we did really well so I was happy.

“We could have been two or three up, in the first half.

“Then I brought the trialists on in the second half and obviously then that made a bit of a difference – I got rid of about six after the game.

“It’s no good me looking at them in training and saying ‘what a great player’.

“I need to look at them and see their positional sense and their passing ability under pressure, in a proper game situation.

“A lot of the players have come from Ryman Premier and a couple of played at Conference South.”
