Boston United boss Dennis Greene has warned that he is prepared to wield the axe - if that means he can strengthen his squad.
The Pilgrims have no cash left in the budget, following the signing of ex-Derby County defender Stefan Galinski last Tuesday.
But with a handful of trialists still impressing in pre-season matches, Greene told The Standard he isn’t afraid to tinker with his playing staff if that means he can create a more competitive squad.
We’re always looking for players,” Greene said.
“At the moment we’ve spent what we’ve got as a wage bill, but then you’ve got your one in, one out policy.
“So if I find something better than what I’ve got then it’ll be one in and one out.
“I’m always looking to tweak the squad.
“If I think somebody comes along and can improve us then I’ll change it.”
Holding midfielder Indy Aujla has certainly impressed while on trial at York Street.
His progress was being tracked by Leeds United last year, and he has previously had spells with Forest Green Rovers and Frickley Athletic, as well as a stint in Belgium with Royal Racing Montegnee.
Former Burton Albion man Billy Bennett caught the eye when curled home a late winner against a Leeds XI at the Jakemans Stadium, while ex-Lincoln City youth teamer Elliott Green is also hoping to secure a deal.
