Former Brighouse Town, Workington and Ramsbottom United goalscorer Jerome bagged 34 goals in Bury's Northern Counties East League Premier Division title success last term and Gooden bagged 26 goals as well for the Villagers.

Saturday's training session is expected to draw a good number of supporters keen to see the work that Black and his assistant Mick Norbury have put in over May and June so far in bringing so many new faces and exciting ones at that to the Hove Edge base of the club.

It will be mid-July before the fixtures are out but the first process took place on Sunday when the club sent in their agreement with Emley for the August Bank Holiday Monday and New Year's Day fixtures.

Town had hoped to also land Bradford Park Avenue for festive fixtures on Boxing Day and Easter Monday but the former Football League club tried for Emley and then went with Pontefract Collieries. Town are now in the hands of the League's fixture planners and could land new boys Garforth Town, Liversedge or Ossett United for those holiday games.
