He handed three more players debuts on Monday night – but Hayes & Yeading joint boss Ritchie Hanlon insists the recruitment is not over yet.
Hanlon and fellow manager Paul Hughes have brought in almost an entire team's worth of new players since taking over at United earlier this month, many from their former club, Kings Langley.
Latest arrivals Josh Chamberlain and Connor Toomey, who boosted the number of ex-Kings players in the squad, and Priestley Farquharson, who captains the Brunel University men's team, made their bows in the 3-0 defeat at Hitchin Town.
But the comings and goings won't stop there and Hanlon and Hughes search for the same blend which saw them lead King to three successive promotions.
Hanlon said: “We still need to recruit, but we want to recruit players with the mental strength we want, not players who have been here a while and are happy to turn up to collect their money.
“Some of the boys that have been here a while can still be involved, but they need to learn that other side quickly. We'll get there, it's just getting the right players in the right positions, and we've got a few more areas to look at.
“There's a lot of work to do, as a lot of boys in there are not used to winning, and we've got to put that right. We've got to make them enjoy playing football rather than it being a chore, and we have to get that winning mentality over quick.
“At Kings, we had a lot of time to get things right, but here we want to get it done quick because its a decent sized club with decent infrastructure, and we want to do well.”
Although they comfortably beat Egham Town in the League Cup last week, Hanlon and Hughes have so far presided over two league defeats, albeit to two title-chasing sides in the shape of Leamington and Hitchin.
But while there were positive signs in the Leamington defeat, Hanlon was left fuming by the manner of the surrender at Hitchin.
He added: “We were very lacklustre in general, and that's what we're angry about. It wasn't everyone, some players showed, we just need more of them. But it doesn't help when you give away three goals with schoolboy errors, we don't get chances like we gave them.
“We've got to gel these boys together quickly, but we had to play a few of them out of position. It was great to play Leamington and Hitchin though because they will highlight the faults and show exactly what we need to do, there's no plastering over the cracks and nicking a win.”
United visit St Neots Town on Saturday and Chesham United on Tuesday night.
