On 25 May 2010, last seasons captain Chris Smith agreed to join Mansfield Town on 1 July 2010 in a one-year deal with the club.[1] Richard Tait is the first player to confirm that he will be staying with the club for the forthcoming season.[2] Veteran striker Iyseden Christie rejoins Kettering Town on a one-year deal.[3] Jake Sheridan expresses interest in returning for next season[4] Tom Shaw signs a one-year deal with former club Kidderminster Harriers.[5] On 15 June 2010, it was announced that Jake Sheridan, Aaron Mitchell and Nick Wright have all verbally agreed to return for the forthcoming season. Gavin Hurren has now moved to Australia and will be playing over there next season.[6] It was later confirmed he had joined Sunshine George Cross in the Victorian Premier League.[7] There are also strong indications that Kettering Town winger Danny Thomas will be signing for the club in the coming days and Michael Wylde to move on.[8] Neil MacKenzie and Sebastian Lake-Gaskin agreed to stay with the club for the new season and as expected, Danny Thomas was announced as The Lambs first signing.[9] Although he was expected to leave for Kidderminster Harriers, Michael Wylde penned a 12 month deal, along with Jay Smith.

It was also confirmed that Jerome Murdock would not be offered a new deal by the club.[10] He later went on to join Northern Premier League First Division South side Barwell.[11] Michael Blackwood left the club to join Brackley Town.[12] Tom Marshall joins the club from Eastwood Town.[13] Michael Briscoe leaves the club to join Tom Shaw at Kidderminster Harriers.[14] Bradley Pritchard joins Hayes & Yeading United.[15] Mansfield Town striker Kyle Perry signs for the club.[16] Des Lyttle signing for the club on a non contract form.[17] Alex Rodman's move to League One side Notts County collapses, assistant manager Darron Gee urged Rodman to sign a new contract with The Lambs.[18] Aston Villa's reserve team goalkeeper, Benjamin Siegrist has joined The Lambs for the next two friendlies,[19] with a view to signing for the club on a season long loan.[20] Former Faroe Islands international player Claus Jørgensen joined the club on trial in hope of landing a place in the squad.

Des Lyttle took charge of the first team as caretaker player-manager.[40] The following day Lyttle brought in former West Bromwich Albion and Tamworth team mate Bob Taylor as a coach to assist him.[41] Due to an injury crisis at Derby County, Ross Atkins was recalled. Lambs brought in England U19 goalkeeper James Severn from The Rams.[42] Academy striker Troy Wallen has been handed the number 18 shirt vacated by Gary Mills.[43]

November

Following a win in the first round proper of the FA Cup against Crewe Alexandra, The Lambs were drawn away to League One side, Carlisle United.[44] Because of this, the away game against Eastbourne Borough was rescheduled from 27 November 2010 to 25 January 2011.[45]
