Considerably more present at tonight's Q & A session than either of the two previous ones! Perhaps being held in the new Romans rather than a Portacabin helped, plus of course there was a first sight of two new playing strips.

Jarrad Wright, Ian Traylor and Keyon Reffell modelled the new 3rd kit on the 'catwalk' - this is the Atalanta kit of blue and black stripes introduced as part of the run up to the 30th anniversary of that game. This strip will be worn by the team in Saturday's match against Slough.

The new away change strip of a rather reddish orange was also unveiled - the winner by just two votes in the poll of club owners.

A few notes arising from the questions put to Steve Jenkins:-

Good and bad news on injured players:

Gavin Williams - it had been hoped he would have been able to play before the end of this season but he needed another operation. Despite this he was expected to be fit for the pre-season games.

Not such good news on Matthew Harris, who also needed to have an operation and seemed likely to miss most of next season.

Some possible pre-season friendlies were mentioned - Hereford away seemed the most likely, also possibility of Gloucester at home. A match with Cardiff City was very unlikely, Swansea - would only mean their Development side for the third year in a row.

Asked what he thought Jarrad Wright's best position was, Steve said centre half of course, but that he had needed him to play in midfield so often this season because of needing his physical presence there. He praised Jarrad's attitude in that he was very willing to play wherever he was asked to.

Commenting on this season, Steve said that all things considered he thought it had been a good one (mentioning the Red Insure Cup win) and pointed out what a tough league the Premier Division was, with 46 games to play (only 42 in the divisions above and below). He said that the number of goals scored by the team was reasonable for mid-table but that he was unhappy with the number conceded. For a variety of reasons the team had been unable to replicate the good football of the previous season but he hoped to be able to return to that, but would need to bring in between three and five players to do that.

Thanks Imp.

Sorry to hear the bad news on the Merthyr Messi, let's hope he comes back stronger once his recouperation is over be it 2017 or otherwise.

Glad, in view of the above, there is no repeat of the 'friendly' against Carmarthen Town .
