Steve Fletcher hopes to make his 400th AFCB appearance in the home game against Exeter City this weekend.
Amos Foyewa could be playing for Luton Town Reserves in their match at Cardiff City today. Phil Gulliver (left sided central defender) and Arturo Bernhardt (Brazilian born striker), both 20, are expected to join AFCB for training next week from Middlesbrough. The pair have not been offered a contract by the Teessiders for next season. Sittingbourne midfielder Andrew Drury (19) could also be training with the club. Alan Connell is reported to be the subject of a Sky Sports feature on the (FA Premier League’s under-18 and under-19) Assessment Trials at Lilleshall; Cherries scouts are said to be going along this season.
Lifelong supporter Bryan Bronsdon is the latest addition to the Dean Court Board of Directors. His appointment brings the number up to seven. He joins Andrew Kaye and Dave Stone as Trust Fund appointed Directors.
Karl Broadhurst may not need an operation on ligament damage in his right shoulder and may just need intensive physiotherapy instead.
Triallist Andrew Drury is expected to play in today’s Reserve match at Dean Court against Plymouth Argyle and also in Wednesday’s match against Swindon Town. Sean O’Driscoll is announced as Nationwide League Division 3 Manager of the Month for February- with four wins and a draw. Let’s hope it isn’t the “kiss of death” that the result at Bury could forewarn!
Gareth Stewart knows his form over the next two months will determine whether he is likely to get a new deal at Dean Court.
Jason Tindall (ankle) and Warren Feeney (hamstring) sit out the visit of Darlington, but the club are hoping to sign Lewis Buxton for a third and final month on his loan spell.
