Turner thinks it will be a good season

At yesterday's photocall Graham Turner told the Hereford Journal that he hopes to see his side challenging for promotion.

"It is our ambition to be up there challenging. A lot of people have suggested it will be a season of consolidation for us, but I do not think that will be the case.

"There is plenty of enthusiasm, bags of honesty and ambition in the squad and I think it will be a good season.

"There are some big spenders in League Two. The message seems to be that the clubs prepared to spend a lot of money on wages will have better teams.

"But I think passion, belief and hunger can get you just as far and we have got those in abundance.

"We have got 17 players and want to bring it up to at least 20. The transfer window does not close until the end of August, so we may take the opportunity to take stock after the first few games, but I would like to get the squad settled as quickly as possible.

"The new lads have integrated themselves very well. There has been a good deal of banter among the players and the mood in the dressing room seems right."

Meanwhile there is speculation that a left-back is in discussions with the club about a move to Edgar Street.
