Views On 100% Imps:

Rasenimp: "I think today Pett is very encouraging but not much info on Wharton and reviews mixed on Allsopp, although a need had developed for a keeper."

imps_joe: "No doubt we've strengthened overall. Rowe was the pick of the signings for me, been very impressed with him. Happy we've got a left sided centre back in and interested to see what Pett can do.

Most important pieces of business was keeping Woodyard and Eardley. I have no idea if anyone even came in for Eardley but he's a cut above."

Scotimp: "Wilson, Rowe, Frecklington and Pett are excellent signings for a League Two club - name one other club that has made signings of this magnitude.

The full list of League Two transfers will be posted later - compare what we have signed with the rest.

Forest Green's 10 signings are well worth a giggle in particular."
