GODMANCHESTER Rovers boss Ian Jackson is calling for local players and supporters to come forward and support his side.
The start of the season is just 17 days away and the Goddy boss is keen for Godmanchester residents to get involved with the club.
He said: "I took a bit of stick last year for bringing in lads from outside the area but I was only doing what I thought was best for the club.
"We need people from around the area to really get behind us, whether that's by playing, getting involved off the pitch or just turning up to matches, I want the people of Godmanchester to step forward."

Godmanchester finished 14th in the Ridgeons League Division One last season and club Chairman Keith Gabb said: "It's about striking the right balance between having local lads in the side and lads from further away.
"Obviously we want local players in there but they need to be of the right standard. We've got fantastic new facilities at the ground now and we're looking forward to a successful season."
