The Chester Chronicle have him down as a midfielder from his time at Airbus. Can't find anything else about him online as to how old he is, what his record is like etc.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

That was exactly my first thought when I saw it - although this guy does seem to have done the rounds in the non-league scene over the last few seasons, albeit there's no record of what he's actually done!

Maybe he's a winger, we could do with a few more of those.
"At a meeting held at the Grammar School on Friday last - Mr Phillip Wood M.A., in the chair - it was resolved to form an Association Football Club for Darlington and neighbourhood. The opinions of those present were so unanimous as to the desirability of this step, that a committee was formed to complete the organisation of the club, and Mr Craven, 17, Garden Street, was appointed secretary pro tem." - The Northern Echo, Monday 23rd July 1883

So we already have a winger who thinks he is a striker, maybe we have now signed a striker who thinks he is a winger?

I heard his natural position is right back but he heard he was a striker who is better on the wing.

I've heard he reckons all non-league games should have goal-line technology - big bugbear of his apparently - and loves his cider. Won't drink Thatcher's though.

I've heard that he has many opinions on onions which he cutely refers to as his 'Opinionions' and that his friends refuse to go to the chippy with him due to his insistence on ordering Hake, which has to be fried to order and always results in a large queue forming behind him.

I've read that we have another overseas player due to arrive next week, according to the Echo. What's with this sudden influx of players, we haven't seen many leave yet?
"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

It is a wind-up, right? Spotted the name is an anagram of

Anagram = "me unsold ape" :silent:
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Does this player actually exist then? Or is he just a figment of our imagination?

Or maybe he was so bad we've just repressed him, like I've been trying to do with Ashlee Jones for years.

He was warming up at Curzon, but I didn’t see him yesterday, probably the last we’ll see of him.

Ashlee Jones must have made a big impression. Didn't he only play for us once? Was he that bad?!!

Yep, Notts County away 4-0 loss.

I've never seen anything like it in professional sports. Made David Knight look like Iker Casillas.
