ALDERSHOT Town boss Terry Brown began his summer revolution in style this week by clinching an exciting double signing at the Rec.
Brown has demonstrated his shrewdness in the transfer market by securing the signatures of speedy winger Roscoe D'Sane from Woking and highly-rated goalkeeper Nicky Bull.
And with another two signings expected next week, Brown's vision is looking brighter by the day.
First to commit himself to the new Brown era was 20-year-old Bull on Tuesday afternoon.
Despite his young age, Bull appeared on the substitutes bench at Queens Park Rangers on 20 occasions last season before joining Brown on loan at Hayes.
Bull remained at Church Road when Brown made the switch to the Shots, but while he was away, Bull proved an extremely valuable asset to Hayes' survival bid — more than playing his part with three clean sheets from the final six games.
But with that bid doomed to failure really from the start, Bull knew his future remained elsewhere, and despite interest from other clubs, he returned back to Brown to pledge his future to the Shots.
Brown said: "Queens Park Rangers only let Bull go because of financial restraints. I have no doubt that otherwise he would have stayed and made the first team.
"Nicky is a very good goalkeeper, brought as one for now rather than one for the future. I just felt that Gareth Howells has never been pushed for a first team place and I don't think that is healthy.
"He has never been put under pressure but Nicky will certainly do that."
With Bull in the bag, Brown continued his search for talent and the momentum took him just a few miles down the road at Woking.
D'Sane played 20 times for the Cards in the Conference and cup games last season, scoring four goals, and has become a firm fans favourite with the Kingfield faithful.
The pacy wide man, who can either operate on the right or as a centre forward, was offered a contract by Cards boss Geoff Chapple, but instead turned it down to join the Shots on a two-year deal.
Brown was first alerted to D'Sane's talents by contacts at the Crystal Palace School of Excellence, who reluctantly released him early last season.
D'Sane then joined Woking, initially as a trial and then on a non-contract basis, making an immediate impact with the management and fans alike.
Indeed Woking fans are said to be extremely angry that their club let D'Sane go at all, let alone to their local rivals.
Now, it seems with D'Sane on the right and Chris Allen on the left, Brown's wish for speedy wide men and quality crossing ability, has been granted.
Brown added: "I watched Roscoe play for Woking on three or four occasions last year and was very impressed with his all-round ability.
"He has great pace, excellent ball control and has the game to lift the crowd. He was a big favourite at Woking and I'm delighted that he has decided to join us."
Elsewhere, Brown is looking to add to the squad further next week with no fewer than four centre backs in negotiations.
With Owen Coll, Ryan Kirby and Leon Townley all released, building the rearguard is Brown's next priority — and it is expected that news of at least one further addition will be announced in the next seven days.
Meanwhile, Lee Protheroe and Stafford Browne are still on holiday and both pondering offers of new contracts.
