Re: Dan Maguire signs!!

Any good shouts for alternatives then? Boyes at Spenny - Not really realistic I imagine due to wages and need for a transfer fee. Beesley at BPA - Also unlikely to be realistic, unless their budget is to be dramatically reduced. Northern League - The next Glen Taylor would be nice. Any possibilities?

Re: Dan Maguire

It would be nice to see the Maguire and also Jameson situations be concluded fairly shortly, even if we don't get them. Armstrong mentioned that we have alternative options, however a slight concern is that we miss out on these players the longer we wait for DM & PJ. It's a long summer I know, I jus...

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

The stats don't really look good for Wright no matter how you cut them...has he ever had a third season somewhere though? It probably is blind faith, because there isn't really a logical reason but I'm kind of happy to stick with him and see what happens. I don't actually think he would take us dow...

Re: Sporting Village

The Report suggests work is expected to start later this year, and be completed next year. But then it says the Planning Application is likely to be submitted later this year. Are they expecting a quick decision? I imagine it will be a formality approving the plans, with the council guaranteeing lo...

Re: Hartlepool match confirmed at BM

Burn's errors cost us last night, no doubt about it. Aside from this we were comfortable and should have been out of sight by the time they equalised. However, it is yet another lead we have surrendered this season. The lack of leaders in the team is obvious and under pressure we fold. If we go behi...

He's our only recognised right back, so there would be a clear impact, especially with our ability to bring in new players expected to be limited to unproven loan signings.

With the 500 club and the early bird sales we currently have not too shy of 800 season ticket holders for next season. Next big push should be to hit the 1,000 mark.
