|Nathan Bartlett will play for City in the |
Just an addition to the Rumour Mill, all a little quiet on western front at the moment, with just a week to go before Victory League Clubs have to name their squads, and the Pre season cups kick off for both Victory League clubs and Northern Premier.
Launceston City have signed Nathan Bartlett and DeZephery Bart in the last couple of weeks from Launceston United, as well as welcoming a few players from over seas. This should help bulster their squads, with the professor claiming that City have signed Aaron Campbell from Riverside, Pat Farrel from United and Saed bin Sumadi from United also.
Rangers have picked up Ryan McCaragher, Nick Lanau Atkinson and Mark Christy from Riverside and Ayden Rigby from Launceston and Derek Schipper is returning.
The club will also welcome their first UK import early in March, a striker from Coventry.
Devonport have no surprises and its well documented who has joined them, though there was a whisper that at least Jeremy deBomford was going to head over to Valley Road for a kick before the squads have been officially selected.
Down south the big news is Kanakaris is back at South Hobart, while their UK player, Nick Hill has already defected to Kingborough Lions.
Tilford Zebras have signed Jonothan Ladic who has been playing in Queensland.
On the Premier League front, all teams have now nominated for the League One competition which is a compulsory competition.
Somerset have signed the Lions share of players on the coast and should be a tough team to beat in 2013.
Little or no news on Ulverstone and Burnie, while Devonport will be strong again in the NPL on the back of an Under 18 premiership.
Prospect Knights still very tight lipped about what is happening up at Harley Parade.
Wayne Penfold is in charge of Riverside, Murray takes over at Launceston and Col Nicholson is the new premier league coach at Rangers.
