Cagey Gary Waddock is playing a waiting game as he looks to get players signed on for Aldershot Town’s coming National League season.

The Shots boss says everything is “under control” from his point of view and he is happy to be patient and not rush into new signings, to ensure he recruits the players he wants.

“I know the club and the supporters want things done yesterday but it doesn’t work like that in football,” said Waddock. “You need to be patient and then things fall into place. It’s about being in control of the situation.

“If I fill the gaps too quickly then someone might come along later that we want to sign and then there isn’t any room in the budget.”

Waddock has been speaking to lots of agents and players but, as expected, added: “I’m not going to reveal names.

“Until signings are over the line then nothing is certain. We have the players reporting back for training on June 28 and we play a week later, so hopefully we will have some things in place before then.”

Waddock would not confirm whether he has made a move to bring in Barry Fuller, who was AFC Wimbledon’s skipper last season.
