A season of consolidation has led to more interest from prospective players, according to Gainsborough Trinity boss Steve Housham.
The Blues managed to stay in the Conference North last season, despite losing financial backer Peter Swann.
With the uncertainty of a year ago behind them, Trinity are now building for the new season.
Housham said: “It does feel a lot more solid this summer.”
“We’re getting more interest this year from players than we did last year.”
“There’s not much money around in non league football now, and there will be a lot of players without a club in July.”
But he insists he’s in no rush to get a squad together.
“There won’t be any rash signings,” he said.
“Players are looking for clubs but they’re also keeping their options open.”
