Re: Darlington V Southport

Christ, we're low on luck, aren't we?

Still, we had a stronger bench today than at any point last season. Can you imagine what a couple of serious injuries would have meant eight months or so ago?

Re: Darlington V Southport

In terms of organisation, solidity and cutting out mistakes, probably our best peformance when you look at how powerfully Southport had started the season. Even had to cope with a major defensive reorganisation after what may well be another serious injury, this time with Liddle on crutches. Excell...

Trotman out for the season

According to the echo. Ruptured achilles. Gutting for everybody, particularly LT, who is a terrific player and seems a very nice guy.

Re: Four signings confirmed

Fantastic depth in almost all positions in that squad. How much were we overpaying players last season to have ended up with 5 youth teamers on the bench when we have that kind of cover now?

Re: Darlington 19/20 squad photo

Glover and burn are missing, Donawa and Cameron holliday are present, I believe.

Notable absentees are holness and Heaton, presumably because neither have signed yet?

Re: Josh Heaton

I've just got a feeling about this one. He's not been I his proper position during the last few seasons, and yes the league is a step up in intensity and he's not a big bloke, but he seems to have a brain to be in the right place in the box. I agree about goals coming from all over, but I think Camp...

Yes, I feel like that too. I am very happy with our progress and signings. The height thing is a minor concern, but I don't feel like we're going to get bullied.

I see that they have already had one preseason friendly in which Cartman scored a hat trick. I wonder if Campbell has ever heard of a hat trick.
Has Cartman ever heard of scoring in the football league?
He's only vaguely acquainted with scoring in the national league North.

Re: Adam Campbell

I'm quite enthused by that interview. It suggests he very much is the number 9 we're after, and Armstrong seems confident that his goalscoring record is false because he has been played out of position so much. If we were to sign, say, this 6'2" Ilkeston player then we have options to change it abou...

Re: Jordan Nicholson released

Well they were relegation fodder for much of last season, Nicholson was too, and styche is very much dependent on the way the wind is blowing, so unless they've made some other good signings it isn't pointing to a promotion push for me. I hope they have some grafters to do the work for them or its n...

Watson strikes me as an odd signing, as I think he'll be second choice no matter what position he plays. He never looked like a centre back to me. I think (hope) Armstrong goes with the 4-3-3 he has played before, as the wide options we have up front seem well suited to it. So Watson will probably ...
