Trotman needs to stay, our pots and has a bright future in the game, hopefully with us.
I'm sure pots can be obtained from many retail outlets Pete

I don't really know anything about their new set up. Are they likely to be splashing the unrecoverable cash again, or relegation fodder? And where are they going to play?
Agreed 5 year deal to play at International Stadium apparently

Re: Gateshead relegated to NLN

Not nice to see any club in trouble, but I would be interested in logic of dropping them 1 division rather than demoting out of National League completely is to NPL or leaving them where they were. Strong suspicion decision was made to avoid having to reprieve Truro into NLS as stuck out on a limb. ...

Re: Assistant Manager, Alan White

Head of Academy about to be advertised apparently, feel sorry for Whitey TBH as he has to apply for the role. I’m beginning to think the club has a money tree or is this the extra money raised above the target of £80K to pay for other staff. Perhaps SuperLes can confirm? Can't blame club for advert...

Bit harsh when he had played 45 football league games before his 18th birthday and was playing in the first team before he was 16.

Just for the record i don't believe brad has chucked £1m at the club. That was 2 years ago and since then he's spent a fortune on the ground and on expensive players.

Re: 3 players released

Potential transfer fees for outgoing players depends on how long they have left on their contracts. If you only have players on one year deals, then when/ if they are sold, you will get less money than if they are on longer contracts. Its a difficult balancing act between trying to secure players to...
