Darren Sarll says he is pleased with the business done in the January transfer window and is now looking forward to the rest of the season.

It was a busy Transfer Deadline Day at Bragbury End as Jack King signed for the club on a permanent deal, Keylon Hinds joined on loan from Arsenal and Rowan Liburd signed for Leyton Orient until the end of the season.

Earlier in the month we brought in Connor Ogilvie from Spurs, Josh McQuoid from Luton and renewed the loan deal of Henry Cowans from Aston Villa.

Tyler Walker and Harry McKirdy returned to their respective parent clubs whilst academy scholar, Nathan Kerr went out on loan to Biggleswade Town.

“Deadline Day was quite a calm, methodical affair." Sarll said. "We are a balanced club and have good foundations on and off the pitch; therefore there was no panic or poor decisions made. We knew who we wanted and how to acquire them.

“With the additions, we have created an environment where the competition is fierce. We recognise the need for constant improvement in winning - winning performances, a winning culture and with the squad we now have, we are closer to realising those targets.

“Leon Hunter and Glenn Roeder have been key, extremely influential 'cogs' in our machine and their knowledge and advice has been crucial to the football club and myself at this time.

“I am glad it is over, we have a great group and I have great belief in each and every member of my squad.

“We are going to need each and every one of them and I am confident that individually and collectively, they will drive this club to new heights. I can't wait to showcase us on Saturday!”
