When things are not going as planned on the pitch, the normal call from supporters is for a quick fix.
But, given the financial constraints in place at Nyewood Lane, these are not possible at Bognor.
Despite being down on players due to injuries in recent weeks, manager Jack Pearce is aware that there’s not the depth of talent in the area to simply add to the squad without breaking the bank – which makes it difficult when looking to bolster the ranks when things are not going well.
Pearce said: “It may not be what supporters want to hear but we’re not in a hotbed of lots of players at this level.
“I’m also very aware that Havant two years ago had double the wage bill that we have and they got relegated from this level. My eyes are not closed to that, and we will work as hard as can to make sure attract right type of player.”
The Rocks have bolstered their ranks in the past week, signing 23-year-old Chinedu McKenzie on a month’s loan from National League surprise package Maidenhead United.
While admitting he is pleased to have the former Romford player in the ranks, Pearce said the search for players would continue.
