GILES COKE SIGNS
CHAD website, 17Mar05
Palmer has begun to draw up plans for next season.
"We have already decided to offer Adam Rundle a deal as well as the Kingstonian midfielder Giles Coke.
"Giles is only 18 but playing in a man's league. He is physically fit and strong and he can deal with the football. With a pre-season and some coaching behind him we feel we can make him better and that's the type of player we want to work with."
As the transfer deadline for 2004/05 looms Carlton Palmer has had his sights on a number of players but does not know yet whether or not changes will be made before the deadline date on Thursday next week.
"... we have offered trialist Giles Coke from Kingstonian a contract. He is an eighteen year old that has impressed already and we feel that with some coaching he can become great player.
