Gorleston FC's management team are already working hard off the pitch to prepare for the club's second season in the Isthmian League North.

The club have announced a number of pre-season friendlies and there have been the usual comings and goings on the playing side.

Christy Finch, Angus Mackie and George Keys have been added to the list of departures, alongside Jamie North, Robbie Sweeney and Liam Jackson.

However, the Greens management has made some new signings.

Ryan Curtis, who scored 12 goals for Wroxham last season, joins. The 25-year-old forward can play in several positions across the front line.

In defence, the Greens have added Dion Frary, signed from Dereham Town. Another 25 year old, he can play full back or centre half.

After being linked to the Greens before, Gorleston has finally secured the signature of the experienced Joe Jefford from Stowmarket Town. Jefford has previously been with Leiston and Lowestoft.

Nathan Stewart, Adam Tann, Jacek Zielonka and Craig Parker have all decided to stay with the Greens for another season alongside long-serving players like Connor and Kyle Ingram, Mitch McKay and Jake Jessup.

Reserve team manager, Ryan Gowing, is delighted to add Danny Pinheiro to his management set-up, alongside Jordan Read and Luke Goreham as they prepare for life in the Anglian Combination Premier Division.
