So far, as you would expect, the transfer front has been pretty tame. The window isn't officially open until 1st July but clubs can begin to sign players who are out of contract or have been released by their current employers. Rovers are representative of most other teams in that they have signed nobody just yet but there are certainly a few clubs who aren't hanging around.

Keith Hill's Rochdale have also recruited early this summer with 3 new players penning contracts. Bastien Henry has linked up with Dale from Sheffield Wednesday while Peter Vincenti has signed from relegated Aldershot Town. Scott Hogan completes the trio having been brought in from non-league Hyde a week ago. Vincenti looks a good signing after putting in a number of good shifts for the Shots in recent seasons but the other two are unknown quantities as far as League Two is concerned. There's nothing to be afraid of so far but Hill is a good manager and will undoubtedly have a few aces up his sleeve.
York City have entered the market today having brought in experienced Torquay United forward Ryan Jarvis, who scored for the yellows and for Rovers on the final day of the season, and Colin Clay from Chesterfield. Nigel Worthington will be hoping to strengthen sufficiently to avoid another relegation fight and will undoubtedly look to add further as the summer progresses. Maybe not promotion candidates next time around but with the former Northern Ireland boss in the Bootham Crescent hotseat you can be sure they'll fare better than they did last season.

All clubs are likely to be active in the transfer market as May draws to a close and June begins. Pre-season training begins for most teams in late June and every manager will want as many of his new recruits in place as possible before it begins.
