Because he’s a Bishop Auckland based, experienced full-back that would do a good job for us - and would also free up Hedley to play in his actual position. On this thread; Tait - Not good enough.

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Surely if he's been released by Gateshead, he'll not be as good as what we've already got? That’ll be the team that finished four points ahead of us with two games in hand and a +16 goal difference. Oliver made 27 appearances for them and he reached the play-offs under Blyth with AA. I also think w...

Purely now it’s all speculation and putting 2 + 2 together as apparently York are cutting costs and AA has worked with Jameson, Langstaff, Maguire before. AA has said himself in his interview that we need to be patient regarding the final decision from the EFL and NL, although to be honest as York l...

I think Tait is past his best I don't think he is what we are looking for.
At 30? Do you judge that on the back of his two games for York against us this season where they conceded once?

Some strange comments on here, in particular about Wrightson, and now Tait.

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Tait would improve us. He has just came off the back of 32 appearances for a club top of our league. Watson also rewarded him with a one year contract last summer - I think he had a spell as captain for them the season before too. For all he’s the pantomime villain when we come up against him, he is...

OK - if this is on the cards, let’s find out what the business plan is first before being dismissive. For all the match-day experience at the Arena leaves a lot to be desired, so does Blackwell.

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’...

The Bermuda lads play tonight and Sunday so back for next week.

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?

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.

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...

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...

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.

What was all that about Louis Laing signing? If Liddle is the first perhaps that was newspaper hype?
I wouldn’t say newspaper hype is Laing’s new employer confirming that he is now a Darlington player.
