Re: Next season’s captain

Completely agree with the two posts above. I think Tait and Storey would be a strong partnership and one that would help push Storey on to be a better player, he has the potential to go far in the game. I also think Laing will be utilised in the latter stages of games next season with his long ball ...

Re: Next season’s captain

Personally would not want to see Joe Tait back at the club. Nothing against the lad but don't think he will add much, or be an improvement on what we already have at the club. We conceded 50 goals this season compared to York who conceded just 28 with Joe Tait in the heart of defence. He is also ve...

Re: Captain next season

Only other name I'd put in the hat is Liddle, he captained the side a few times last season.

Did he have a spell at York I seem to remember.

Yes he did, he had two spells there on loan.

He's out of contract this summer.

Re: Natcafe with AA

From my understanding it’s down to a number of different factors at York. 1. The chairman is cutting costs due to a dispute with the supporters club. 2. Ryan Whitley is well thought of and was loaned out last season to Shields as he wasn’t ready so they might go with him next year as they don’t want...

Kieran Weledji has just left Whitby, highly thought of there and he’s an ex Boro youth team player. Could he be Galbraith’s replacement if he was to leave?

Re: New deal for Donawa, Hatfield, Rivers, Holmes,Hedley,Reid, Storey, Campbell, Laing, Wheatley

We aren't part of the EFL. The majority of the players which we will sign, and have recently signed, are from clubs in the league above, current level or leagues below. There will be exceptions to that, but I would suggest the majority will be in those leagues where we know contracts have ended. Th...

Re: New deal for, Donawa , Hatfield, Rivers, Holmes Hedley

Last season’s players we’re still waiting on: Laing, Storey, Galbraith, Watson, Liddle, Holness, Atkinson, Campbell, Reid, Wheatley. Could also include Lucas Bell, although he played very little part for the first team. If the bulk of those first 10 senior players sign, we probably only need two or...

Re: Players moving from DFC to YCFC (and vice-versa)

Joe Tait, Bradley Fewster, Chris Dickinson, Ryan Brobbel and Peter Jameson would be a few to add to the list.

Sam Muggleton and Richard Brodie have played for both of us but not transferred between the two clubs.

Rumours circulating that York are listening to offers for Jameson and Maguire.
Maguire isn’t under-contract, is he?
They might have had an option to extend but whether or not they activated it or not I'm not sure.

The money Thommo has been allegedly offered is staggering.

Despite being one of our top earners, a 50% pay rise, and a 5 figure signing on fee. We couldn’t possibly match this and he couldn’t possibly turn it down.
From who Spenny or Shields?

South Shields budget

Geoff Thompson has said their most expensive cost per month is 50k, which I presume is on players! That’s nearly 600k per year on wages! :wtf:

I’m sure our wage budget when we won the league was just short of 200k?
