Assistant manager Shaun Gale insists the Havant & Waterlooville recruitment policy remains the same ahead of their first-ever season in the National League.
After being relegated from National League South two seasons ago the club put an emphasis on recruiting more locally-based players. The move paid dividends with two successive promotions.
Though the management team will need to cast their net a little wider for next season there won’t be a big change and they know they need signings who can fit in well with the squad. Gale reckons the basic principles will remain the same.
He said: “We are determined that any players we bring in are right for the club. It is important we recruit characters who will conduct themselves in the right way both on and off the pitch.
“They must be prepared to show their commitment to the football club. This policy has worked well for us in the past couple of seasons.
“What we won’t do is sign players for the sake of it.”
