Manager Paul Tisdale has confirmed speculation that he was looking at two trialists in our first week back to pre season training ahead of the 2015-16 campaign.

Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer confirmed that both of them were forwards.

The first trialist is 29 year old Will Hoskins who is a free agent having been released by Oxford United after one year with them. He started out at Rotherham and Watford, before joining Bristol Rovers in 2010 and his performances earned him a move to Brighton and Hove Albion where he spent the next three years before he was hampered by injury problems in his final year.

He has over 200 career appearances to his name, with a return of 62 goals.

The second is 25 year old Alex Fisher who was released by Mansfield Town at the end of last season. Prior to moving to them in the summer of 2014, he spent twelve years with Oxford and spent five years playing abroad.

‘Alex has been in with us this week so we can have a look at him. If he doesn`t come to Scotland with us, then we`ll be inviting him back in afterwards. He has played quite a bit of football abroad and he was part of the Glenn Hoddle Soccer School. He seems a very likeable chap and has got a good touch; he`s a lead-the-front-line type of striker that plays at the top of the field, and it`s so far so good.’

Going on to add.

‘Will has left Oxford and he`ll be training with us for a couple of weeks, and then we`ll see. He has had an injury-affected couple of years and we need to see him train, but hopefully that will turn into something. We tried really hard to sign him in the past, but he was a cherry-pick that we didn`t get, and he ended up having a very good year with Bristol Rovers before being sold to Brighton. So I`ve gone through the process of looking at his game before. We are optimistic about it – if we can get good value and give someone an opportunity then everyone is a winner.’
