Squad News

Defender Lee Protheroe has been released from the club for financial reasons. Meanwhile on the injury front, Jimmy Gray has dislocated his shoulder sustained by an accident on the ice and loan player Billy Gibson has picked up a thigh strain whilst training with Watford FC and was not available for the Ashford Town match last Saturday.

With regard to longer term injuries, Kieron Forbes has had a scan which has shown up a fracture to the kneecap and he joins Sean Thomas with fractured fingers – both will be hopeful of a return to training by the end of January.

Ryan Ashe is abroad for a period and will not be available for a couple of matches, but Stones should welcome back Callum Martin who was visiting his brother at Crewe over Christmas.

Centre half Rob Fitzgerald has completed his suspension and will be available for selection for the Harrow Borough match, but new suspensions will mean that Gordon Bartlett’s small squad will have to cope without Alan Massey, Marvin McCoy and Chris O’Leary over coming games.
