With just a few weeks left until the 2019/20 campaign gets underway, Clitheroe boss Phil Brown says that his work is almost done.

The former Lancaster City boss, a promotion winner during his time at the Giant Axe Stadium, has made 10 signings in the transfer window so far, with many getting off to a good start in the 4-0 win over Nelson.

Brown is more than happy with the way his squad is starting to take shape, but the head of football at Myerscough College would ideally like to make a few more additions before time runs out.

Lee Ashforth’s successor has landed most of the players he’d targeted when stepping in to the hot seat at Shawbridge in May, though he’s still awaiting the decisions of others he’d spoken to in recent weeks.

“We haven’t got a massive squad,” said Brown, after beating Andy Harrison’s Admirals at Victoria Park.

“I’m only adding players to the squad who I feel will make us better. We only went to Nelson with 18 players and two of those were goalkeepers.

“We’ve got 18 training with us at the moment and we need a couple more. The squad will ideally be made up of 18/19 players.

“That will make us a little bit stronger in key positions on the pitch. It will give us a little bit more depth.”
