Tonbridge Angels boss Steve McKimm is not one to pull any punches and that’s not about to change ahead of pre-season training.
McKimm has had plenty of interest from players and he’s prepared to give them all a chance – for now.
He said: “I’ve had some, let’s say, strange approaches but they, like all the others, will get the chance to come along and show what they can do. You just don’t know what you will find.”
One of the players to have contacted McKimm is Maidstone midfielder Nathan Campbell, who missed most of last season with a foot injury.
McKimm said: “I know he’s a good player but I was brutally honest with him, like I have been with all the others. I told him he would be treated like anybody else who comes along.
“There are no guarantees here and those who want to play for me this season will have to come in and earn it. There will be no favours for anyone – I can’t afford to do that.”
McKimm also confirmed that a successor for his former first-team coach Simon Balsdon, who recently quit, had been found.
Former Ramsgate boss Justin Luchford has arrived at Longmead to work with McKimm in what is a voluntary role.
