The University of Gloucestershire All Golds have released their squad numbers for the 2015 Kingstone Press League 1 campaign.
The Kingstone Press ‘Club of the Year’ have been recruiting well over the off-season and have brought in a number of exciting new faces to the club.
Toby Topham, Ollie Purslow, Brad Adams, Brett Scriven, Courtney Davies, Brad Mais, Tim Stevenson, Luke Kell, Ian Clark, Ryan Pywell and Joel Thomas all join the ‘Golden Revolution’ for the first time and will be looking to earn the honour of wearing the Golden Fern in 2015.
Callum Mulkeen, Yannic Parker and Rory Sharratt all return to the club after a season away with League 1 rivals, Oxford RL and Lewis Reece returns after a season in Australia.
Casey Canterbury joins the club full time after a successful period on loan last year.
The All Golds have also retained a ‘core’ player base from the squad who just missed out on reaching the play-offs in 2014 with Phil Cowburn, Scott Claridge, Matt Bradley, Steve Parry, Izaak Duffy, Dan Spencer-Tonks, Chris Vitalini, Joe McClean, Ash Haynes, James Walter, Jamie Crowther and Danny Fallon all accepting new contracts.
Joe Martin has joined the club on season loan from Halifax.

All Golds Head Coach, Lee Greenwood, anticipates special things from the squad in 2015:
“I’m really excited for the season ahead. It is a big challenge, not just for the club, but for me personally. We have the chance to build something really special and that is our intention. The big squad we have put together in such a short space of time will take some time to settle, but the potential is huge. All of the players want to improve and all want to be part of the club going forward. The standard in League 1 will be much higher than it has been and we need to be ready for that. We aim to be competitive in every game which we know will take a lot of hard work. We are preparing well though, and once we get into our stride and learn more about each other, I am very confident we will do well.”
