Signings

Clearly Jonny Burn is one he’s referring to and Simon Ainge won’t be on peanuts. Out of the others, we’ve just paid for Wheatley to have an operation and he also ticks the local box. Just my speculation but I think he’ll stay. I could see Trotman leaving. Would have to travel a lot, so it makes you ...

Jordan Nicholson released

Clearly one of our better players last season (although that isn’t saying much). Couple of points though. 1. Clearly he was doing a lot of travelling which AA has suggested previously he wasn’t keen on. 2. We never really sorted out Nicholson’s best position under TW. Most suggest it was number 10, ...

An exciting forward and proven goal scorer announced today/tomorrow.
I'm guessing Dale Hopson. Has links with AA through Blyth.
But will it be Hopson’s choice?

I’m sure he will as will all players released at that level but doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. If he’s wanting to stay local he’s already massively reduced his options. Depends how local he’s wanting to stay. I’ve not read anything saying he wants to definitively stay only in the North East. Ha...

Nope fair point, have added him to the list. Although that speaks volumes about his contribution that most have forgotten he still is here.

Re: Ex Newcastle man takes manager job at gateshead

On paper is reality I’m afraid. As such he replaced Clark, and Williamson replaces him.

Re: Gateshead relegated to NLN

Interesting to see if they manage to cobble together a decent side, although does put another competitor for local talent into the mix. On the positive side, we will have another short away trip and they could bring a few extras down for the return leg, although it will hardly cover the cost of the...

Budget of 375k for next season.

For context, we can't ...

Gateshead relegated to NLN

I don't really know anything about their new set up. Are they likely to be splashing the unrecoverable cash again, or relegation fodder? And where are they going to play? They’re going to be full-time according to the club. There’ve been some noises from the supporters behind the takeover that they...

Gateshead relegated to NLN

It’s a trip to the International Stadium (probably) next season. Oxford City moved back into the NLS. From a travelling point of view, we’ve swapped a long trip for a short one. Surprised they weren’t relegated to the Evo Stik, that’s certainly been the precedent (Salisbury I think this happened to)...

Re: Curtis Main

Part of it also is that lower league football is much more restricted in terms being able to develop players.

Early odds for next season

Hereford are excellent value and Spenny are definitely under-priced. There’s always one promoted team who does well, and carries the momentum from the previous season through (Altrincham, Salford, us in recent years). Kettering have had a few promotions so have built up momentum, and Kings Lynn have...
