I have no complaints with the resigning of Chandler or any of the signings up to now.
Batley have a lot of work to do in the close season and will have to sign a number of additional players with players moving on to new clubs and I would assume players like Martin, Brennan and Leary being released. This season the squad was not big enough or balanced this also will need to be addressed.
Smith will not be difficult to replace. He gives 100% every game but the game is full of this type of forward. Applegarth was playing the most of last season with an injury so would be surprised if another club signed him.
