Chelmsford City manager, Rod Stringer, explained that he wouldn’t bring new faces into his squad simply for the sake of it.

The Clarets chief has already strengthened his squad with the acquisitions of Philip Roberts, Chris Dickson and Josh Hill over the past few weeks, but insisted it has to be right for the club if he is to make further additions: “I watch Sky Sports like we all do, Stringer said. “The transfer window is open and people ask who their team are bringing in and who’s going out. The answer I hear from most managers is that they will only do business if it is worth doing business.

“We are no different. We don’t want to bring someone in simply for the sake of it. If someone became available that I thought would be really good for us and help push us on, I’d do everything I could to make it happen.”

Stringer added: “But at the moment we’ve got twenty-plus footballers here at the club. We seem settled. I’ve probably got a headache in two or three areas at times, usually down to an injury or suspension. Strangely, sometimes it makes it a bit easier. However, when the team are all fit, I have big decisions to make, and that’s what we get judged on.
“I wouldn’t rule anything out. If the right player became available in the market I would certainly be interested. But I’m not currently on the phone trying to make something happen.”
