Getting a bit depressing this. Only 12 players, one of whom recovering from an Op and no GK.
We were always going to have a big re-structure this summer with the changing of management team and reduction of budget. Still not in pre-season yet so no need to panic. Probably more outgoings to come.

Re: Signings

AA in the Echo this morning. Basically saying he will be looking to off-load more following Nicholson’s departure. Players on big contracts that he feels he can bring in two for one for. Also mentioned that Dale Hopson is a target for us. Missed out on Connor Oliver too who has decided to go to Gate...

Re: Signings

Ultimately Nicholson was brought in on a previous wage structure that has been cut 3 times since he signed. We all know TW had a fairly decent budget last summer and decided to spend it across a really small squad leading to inflated wages for certain players. If AA feels he can replace Nicholson an...

Re: Signings

AA hopeful of bringing in Jameson, and he has a deadline of Friday to make his decision before AA goes away on holiday.

Says he is speaking to players and is hopeful of bringing in definitely one by Friday, if not two more depending on how things go.

Re: More signings pls xoxo

What really gets me is why do Spendy throw such numbers around? Claiming to be the pride of county Durham - to me that's a veiled dig at Darlo, a passive aggressive way of insinuating indirectly that they are better club - but take Groves away and where would they be? Northern Premier League at bes...

Re: 3 players released

Just for the record i don't believe brad has chucked £1m at the club. That was 2 years ago and since then he's spent a fortune on the ground and on expensive players. As for the rest of Spin's heap of horseshit reply, I'm beginning to see why Andy often restricts himself to a two-word reply. You ha...

“Brad said he wasn’t going to the game, but then he did, so how do I believe him when he said he’s put a seven-figure investment in to Spennymoor?”

Re: Signings

I wonder if Spennymoor fans are still in denial of the huge amount of investment going on at their club? You kind of didn’t mind them in the Northern League up to the NPL, they could pay big wages, but we could too and we could compete. However as we have both risen to this level they have blown us...

So it was alright whilst we could compete and blow other teams out the water finance wise, but now we can't it's not? Only the "bigger" clubs should have a chance at glory? No that isn’t what I said.

So from last night it sounds like we are very much in for Jameson & Maguire, but both have offers from full-time clubs. The latter also has a ridiculous offer from a team in our league including a huge signing on fee which DJ has said that we won’t offer. FL clubs couldn’t even rival the package on ...

He had all of last pre-season to get himself fit and couldn’t manage it. He’s also just finished a 35+ game season, he should be up to it! The management accepting some of the shocking states that returned last pre-season resulted in a relegation fight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a group of un-fit...

Re: Signings

Simon Ainge, 19 appearances as a centre-forward last season, 4 goals & 2 assists.

Is that good enough next season? Especially if AA goes with his preferred 1 up top.

Rotate between him, Laing & Galbraith for centre-half and try to off-load Burn.

Re: Signings

Definitely do not want to see Ainge up-front again next season, it was awful to watch. Personally I thought he was half decent in the first 8 or so matches, but we didn't play to his strengths. He was out injured after that, then in and out of the team mostly as a defender, with a few cameos up top...

Re: Signings

I would guess that we're waiting on whether other targets come to fruition, or perhaps until Armstrong has had a chance to form an opinion on Elliott, before making a decision on whether to take the option on the extra year. Once the 3rd May passed did we lose the control over the situation? 3rd Sa...

Re: Signings

As expected. So that's a LB, RB, CB and RM signed up and moves our squad to 13, although without naming Elliott no one knows who the thirteenth one is. I believe we have an option of a year on Elliott if we want to take it, hence why he is included in the number. Goalkeeper, Striker (at least one) ...

Re: Signings

Ryan Hall would be one that would naturally cause an interest, however with Thompson & Rivers we would have two right-footed wingers already in the squad. This is something I’ve been wondering about if we do sign Rivers. I’ll be interested to see how we do fit both of them into the team. Would one ...
