YEMI Odubade hailed the signings of Brett Williams and Adeoye Olumuyiwa as the Terras return to pre-season training.
The duo join Ollie Harfield as having joined the Terras so far this summer, while a bulk of last year’s squad have stayed at the Bob Lucas Stadium.
Odubade knew both players prior to them joining the Terras, highlighting Williams’ ability as a main point for the attack, and Olumuyiwa’s potential for the future.
Odubade told Echosport: “I know Brett and Ade already, I have known Brett for a while we have come across each other and played against each other quite a few times.
“Brett is a good lad, he is a good player as well, he is a good focal point up front and Ade is a young lad, willing to learn.
“Hopefully Zubes (Stephane Zubar) takes him under his wing and looks after him which I am sure he will do.
“Ade seems like a good prospect for the future, he is a young lad, willing to learn, and he has come to the right club to get that experience and learn from the good players that we have got here already, plus the gaffer. His input is always a good one.”
Odubade emphasised the importance of getting the new players bedded into the squad as quickly as possible, and highlighted how he felt when he first joined Weymouth, initially on loan, back in December.
When asked if it felt different given the arrivals and departures, Odubade replied: “Obviously that is football isn’t it?
“Every year there are going to be new faces, old faces go and that is part and parcel with football but the best thing to do is get the new lads settled in, make them feel welcome and make them feel a part of it as quick as possible.
“I think we did that (on the first day back) and they seem to have settled in, we have got a great bunch of lads here haven’t we.
“They made me feel welcome when I first came so I am sure that is how the new lads felt, because that is exactly how I felt last year.”
