Re: New signing

His record at U23 level looks decent so it will be interesting to see who he adapts to NLN level, which as we know is a whole different beast. Clearly AA was keen if he tried to bring him in last season too. It was an area we needed to strengthen, getting in a taller, more athletic forward. We’ve g...

Re: Sports village

Nope defos not - the question is can the rugby club even authorise it...is that even in their gift to do so. The type of relationship is landlord and tenant we know that. It's the same as we had with Bishop and realistically all we could hope for from the arena. WE ARE NOT TENANTS..... have we not ...

Re: Alan Walsh

:) Fred's debut away at league leaders Hull was sensational - we held them to nil-nil draw largely due to him then beat Pools the following Weds. March 83 I think. Fred got a mention in the nationals as the Observer covered the Hull match. Better than Prudhoe? Slightly off topic (Walsh) but rather ...

He could end up at Vicarage Road.
Could also end up at The Abbey, Cambridge
Perhaps either of the St. James Park's may be an option?
Surely is a foregone conclusion he will end up at the Minstermen?

18 by my reckoning including loan spells. Had 4 years at Forest Green 2010-2014 but has moved around a lot since.
"A lot since".... understatement of the year! He had a good half a season with us but not a team player for me.
