Darren Freeman is making a few changes to his squad at the start of the New Year.

Both Billy Medlock and Nico Cotton have cancelled their contracts with the club by mutual consent. Billy joined the club in our promotion-winning 2017-18 season and finished the season as top scorer. His appearances were limited at the start of the season and then work commitments limited his availability. Nico joined the club in the summer from Southend Utd and has spent time on loan at East Grinstead Town this season. We thank both players for their service and wish them well with their future careers.

Also heading to East Grinstead Town is Marcus Elliott, who joins the Wasps on a season-long loan, although we do have the option to recall him should the need arise. Marcus joined from East Grinstead towards the end of last season and spent a month on loan at the club earlier this season.

"Marcus is a smashing lad and you couldn't ask for anyone else who is more committed than he is. But we also need to give him some game time and it makes sense for him to do that back at East Grinstead Town where we will monitor his progress" commented Darren.

Finally, Liam Wilson, who joined on a short-term basis as cover over the Christmas period while returning from his studies in the US, has now left the club.
