The summer transfer window slams shut today with manager Steven Pressley comfortable with the makeup of his squad, but also ready to move quickly should anything develop over the course of the next seven or eight hours.
“The obvious interest we’ve had has been in Hallam [Hope] but there’s nothing happening around that as far as I’m aware,” he said. “Him not being a starter on Saturday was purely a decision based on what we felt was right to win the game.
“He’s actually left the country to go on international duty with Barbados [he joined up with his national team on Sunday] so he misses the Exeter game at the weekend. He’ll be back with us after that.”
On whether or not he’ll be looking to add to the group, he told us: “You know deadline day, anything could happen. We’re in a situation where if something happens we need to be ready – we are at this moment in time slightly ahead of the game. But I think, fingers crossed, everything will remain how it is, we’ll just have to wait and see if anything happens.
“One of the things within the make-up of the group was that our young players were going to play a pivotal role. What I mean by that is when I initially looked at the start of the season McCarron was part of that group, also Josh [Galloway] – we’ve now lost two young players, so the depth of the group goes down.
“It has to be a consideration because they were part of our squad. If we’re going to give up these types of players who are going to push into the first team then we might need to bring in a replacement. Nothing’s definite, but we’re certainly exploring the market at this moment in time.”
