Re: Darlington V Blyth

You can’t include Bascome as Wheatley is much better and Donawa is a sub! I also doubt Holmes would star .. in his two games he was very ineffective. So only Trotman and Liddle missing with Atkinson and to a lesser extent, Watson as able deputies. It was scrappy, Blyth had good chances and we didn’...

Re: Ben Hedley

The Bermuda lads play tonight and Sunday so back for next week. This lad is a midfielder and at 20 it’s not like he’s an experienced pro who can fill in a position like David Atkinson and Will Hatfield can. According to Stoddart, he has been signed to play right-back. Let’s not write him off before...

Very strange signing, do we not have a specialist 20 year old right back in Cameron Holliday?
Who we signed from the Northern League, and not ready for NLN football?

I’d trust AA’s judgement over yours. :roll:

Re: Groundsman

Incredibly frustrating and amateurish by the Rugby club really. It’s not as if we’re asking for much - I remember against Nuneaton at home in 17/18, when the 18 yard box in front of the tin shed wasn’t even marked out until around 10 minutes before KO. Those markings put in on the pitch near the dug...

Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I’m not in the ‘you can’t say anything negative’ camp, but from watching the game yesterday I’m struggling to see how anyone could say they weren’t impressed with Bell? That was my biggest issue, which is why I posted.

Re: BM - Surface

Have to say I missed the Motherwell game, so yesterday was my first chance to see the pitch. But after all the gloom and despondency in this thread I was expecting the pitch to look far worse yesterday. I know it's not perfect but it didn't look a mile off being ok and it didn't stop both sides pla...

Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

Other than a 5 minute spell in the first half when he gave the ball away very cheaply 2/3 times, one for the goal, I thought Bascombe had a decent match. Always looking for the ball and played some very good balls other than that 5 minute spell. It’s the first time I’ve seen us preseason and overal...

Re: Signings

If Trotman does leave, I’m confident he will be going for a fee. AA backed him at the forum. Quite naturally though, he is looking at local players - by that, Northumberland, Newcastle, Sunderland, County Durham, Teeside, maybe North Yorkshire but touch and go if this is “local” - is this not a big...

Re: Signings

Would assume we would want a fee for Trotman before we let him go with sell on clause. Apparently a really nice lad who has caught the eye playing for England C. Think AA has already brought someone in who can cover that position but would be nice to get some money. Yes agree, I'd be annoyed if we ...

Re: Jordan Nicholson released

Slightly worried by this. Technically one of our best players and our best, most consistent attacker last season. Whoever's coming in has shoes to fill. Well one player can fill Nicholson’s left boot. AN.other can fill Nicholson’s right boot. Two for the price of one. Just the 12 contributed goals ...

Re: Jordan Nicholson released

With Wright gone Nicholson was always likely to want to play back down south. A talented player but very lightweight for this league. Wonder if he ends up at Stratford. A bit disappointed to see him leave as he was one positive signing that had a bit of end product and a consistent contributor to w...

What was all that about Louis Laing signing? If Liddle is the first perhaps that was newspaper hype?

Re: Signings

How about some of the Gateshead players? White, Tinkler, Olley or Rigg would surely be good shouts.

Boyes I would highly doubt from Spennymoor, but he’s local. Maguire would be outstanding but I reckon he’s off to Shields.

Surely they don't need another goalkeeper? They must have some players who will be sick of sitting in the stands as well?

Spennymoor ‘share an interest’ in the players we’re looking at. I’m starting to genuinely think they do it out of spite, not as if they need a 7th centre back or a 4th striker More than likely Jameson, Buddle and Maguire if the rumours are anything to go by. They are really going for it - all the b...

Re: Signings

I do think with ainge that we didn't play to his strengths at all. We never got the ball crossed from the by line for him to meet, because we were trying to play a system unsuited to the wide players we had. I'd say it's not impossible for him to succeed, even if it seems pretty unlikely. Also, Lin...
