Greene: Three players in mind for next season
Saints boss reaches verbal agreements with two players
SAINTS manager Dennis Greene’s preparation for next season is already well under way.
Greene has already identified three transfer targets and says he has reached verbal agreements with two of those.
Neots need to strengthen after losing the services of centre-back Ian Gayle and winger Dominic Green, with both loanees returning to parent clubs Dagenham and Peterborough, respectively.
Greene said: “We’ll lose a couple but everyone else, at the moment, is staying.

“I’ve had agreements with two players, but obviously until we get it confirmed what league we’re going to be in, we can’t sign them formally anyway.
“We’ll hope to do so in early June.”

Defender and long-term injury victim Adam Jones, meanwhile, is set to retire after struggling to regain full fitness.
Centre-half Lewis Christon, who hasn’t featured much in the first team since joining Neots in January, will join up for pre-season training in a continued bid to get fit.
Another task Greene has during the close season is to appoint a new reserve team manager.

Winger Dan Jacob was picked out as the Manager’s Player of the Season at the club’s end-of season awards evening on Saturday.
Greene highlighted Jacob’s 94th minute winner at St Ives in February – as well as the two he scored a King’s Lynn last month – as factors that swayed him.
