D'Sean Theobalds among four Tonbridge Angels players still to sign new deals

Steve McKimm is set to meet D'Sean Theobalds for further talks over a new deal at Tonbridge.

Theobalds, whose late wonder goal took Angels' super play-off final at Met Police to extra time, was made an offer along with every other member of their promotion-winning squad.

The midfielder is yet to make up his mind and McKimm has arranged a meeting with him on Saturday.

Angels are also waiting on answers from defender Callum Taylor, holding midfielder Craig Stone and winger Joe Turner, who was due to have a minor groin/hernia operation this week.

Boss McKimm said: "It's just those four outstanding now.

"If they decide to stay, great, and if not, I'll need to find four replacements.

"We're actively talking to people. We were hoping to get someone signed yesterday (Wednesday) or today and I'm meeting another player on Saturday.

"Things are moving along nicely."

Tonbridge this week announced that injured midfielders Tom Parkinson and Tom Beere were staying at Longmead, along with young right-back Liam Smith.

Beere goes into hospital for a knee operation tomorrow (Friday) and should be back early next year, while skipper Parkinson is hoping to recover from an ankle injury by October/November.

McKimm said: "It's a lonely place when you're going through rehab trying to get fit and you don't know what's at the end of it.

"This way, they can be in and around the boys and they have the peace of mind of knowing they've got a club to play for.

"As long as they're around the boys in their tracksuits, they'll be buzzing.

"They were a big part of us last year and they will be next year."

As for Smith, McKimm added: "It shows the progress he's made with us.

"He deserves the opportunity to step up to National South.

"He needs to play football and that may be with us or it may be on loan at times. We don't know yet."
