Smith hints 'more signings could be on their way' after Clarke's departure, Conway's sunspension and the lacklustre draw with Stafford

BROMSGROVE Sporting manager Paul Smith has hinted there could be new signings on the way after slamming his side’s disappointing 1-1 draw with Stafford Town writes Max Banner.

With striker Tony Clarke moving to Hednesford Town and fellow frontman Chris Conway suspended for three months, Smith has hinted acquisitions are likely.

“We’re looking to recruit up front and there’s one or two other irons in the fire,” said Smith.

“I might not have followed them through, but on the back of that performance I’ll be following things through now.”

The result against Stafford was their second consecutive draw in the league, seeing them slump to third in the Midland Football League Division One, behind Leicester Road and Atherstone Town.

“It was an awful performance and one that I won’t tolerate going forward and for a squad I’ve got together, it looked lazy, it looked disjointed and it was miles away from where they should be and they’ve been told that in no uncertain terms.

“We need to learn some lessons quickly; if we don’t, then it’s going to be a long hard season,” said Smith.

Leicester Road, who play Racing Club Warwick on tonight, are currently three points clear of Sporting, having played the same amount of games.

However, Smith said he was not concerned about teams around Sporting in the table.

“I can’t make any decisions for Leicester Road. They’re obviously doing their job at the moment and we’re not doing ours.”
