On signing for the club Urry commented: “Mase and Sinny (Adam Mason and Martin Sinclair) have shown great faith in me in such a short time and despite interest from other clubs I felt it was important to show loyalty and kick on in with a great group of players. The club have been excellent and now I can’t wait for the new season”

The club also announced that goalkeeper Kingsley Barnes has but pen to paper at the Wellesley along with striker Orren Oliver who scored 19 in 25 starts for Blofield United last season.
