Re: Trotman out for the season

Dreadful news. In terms of how we line up now though could Liddle play RB? Move Terry to LB and Heaton in centre??

Wishing Luke all the best with his recovery. Suffered a broken leg three years or so ago, another major injury now and he’s only 22

I presume "if anything happens to Elliot" suggests he means Turner as first choice?
That would be correct! Should injury or suspension strike with Elliott, he could be an option to bring in.

Jake Turner

Signs for Newcastle United. Very promising keeper who impressed last season. Perhaps an option to bring back on loan should anything happen to Elliot.

Re: Josh Heaton

You never know Armstrong might have found a club to take Burn on loan and cover some of his wages. There was talk of Whitby being interested a week or two ago. Surprised Heaton is on trial , would be quite a coup if we could get him back.

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

If it does turn out to be Armstrong, perhaps he could bring in his son Luke on loan. Seems to have done well at Gateshead. Dan Maguire would be good too....

Unfortunately things don't seem to be working out for him up in Scotland.

Re: Darlington V Altrincham

It will be interesting to see the line up that TW decides on for Saturdays game. Probably a reshuffle in the back 4 and definitely one in the midfield. I think we should still go for 4 4 2, Hughes needs a run of games, this is his chance. Maddison, Trotman Burn Galbraith O'Hanlon, Thompson Hughes E...

Not a local club but Sam Russell released by Forest Green. If he was coming back up north I’d like to think we’d be interested. Former team mate of Wright and White.

Re: Gainsborough v Darlington Match Thread

Let’s be honest Wright wouldn’t have been in many fans top ten choices. I hope he can turn it round but the signs aren’t great at the moment. Never mind play offs, if you offered me a fourth bottom finish I’d snap your hand off!

Re: Gainsborough v Darlington Match Thread

I Think if we (as seems likely) suffer another defeat today, the patience Wright and White have been shown by the fans so far will surely waiver.

We all knew the importance of this game. To be two down after 20 minutes just ain’t good enough.
