Another who played for TW at both Corby and Nuneaton has been released by Harrogate. Left-back I believe.

Do we need another left back when we have Galbraith, I'd say no? Plus he'll be on full-time wages so he won't come cheap and he'll want a decent wage.

I’d say yes. Any defensive re-enforcements would be welcome. Galbraith looks like his confidence is shot and no one wants to see Leon play there. Also frees up Galbraith to play CB.

The lad hasn’t got a job as of today, I hardly think he’ll be demanding the earth

Snap the lad up if he’ll come. Thommo needs to be playing up front with Styche

Totally agree Nick, if Tommy prefers 3 at the back Galbraith moves across and we bring in a left wing back which frees Thommo to play up front.Get him signed up then that leaves us with needing a partner for Reece.No brained for me.

Why?

For all we know, he could be absolutely dog-shit. Massive gamble imo.

Have to agree, if he's been released, then we'd need to know the reasons. It might be that if he's not good enough for them, then he may not be good enough for us. Did he play against us?

Seen him play last season in away game v Nuneaton and he was very good attacking left wing back, was probably man of the match.

I could see why Wright might be interested if he played like that quite often.

Even if he is a half decent defender, that would be enough to improve us at the minute surely to god.

Behind Ben Parker at Harrogate, could be his decision to leave to get some playing time. Good pedigree ex-England schoolboy

If he's an attacking full back with some pace then it sounds like he'd fit the system Wright is trying to get us to play.

Him and Trotman either side with Galbraith, Heaton and Collins/Brown across the middle.

If Wright insists on playing this formation we might as well have suitable players for it.

Even better, someone go and walk their dog down Eastbourne and tell TW that Ben O'Hanlon is a free agent.

He was good that day but then again Mills was excellent for Tamworth v Darlo last season and his fitness isn't where it was and hasn't hit the same levels.

It appears this is a done deal though so we will get to find out.

Announced tonight at AGM that we were signing a left back apparently, some other rumours around which match it also. So from what I have heard be very surprised if it doesn't happen.

Wasn't there, just what I was told and also on Twitter. Hopefully someone can give us a run down of the AGM and the main take outs.

He may have been released because we had agreed to sign him.
Waiting for the paperwork to go through before announcing it rather than Harrogate releasing because he is shite.

Some people always seem to look on the dark side.

Always look on the bright side of life

Remember when we could work out who our new signings were by looking at who Atkinson was following on twitter? :lol:

Released by York.

Quote:
York manager, Alan Little, told the board that Gabbiadini was "past his best" and they decided not to offer him an extended contract.

And also - not being good enough for Harrogate, 2nd place in the table, doesn't mean he wouldn't improve us, 19th place in the table.

I seem to remember a couple of seasons ago we released a left-back who was more than good enough for the level we were playing at but we couldn't give him enough game time with Galbraith in the side.

He's played 13 games this season for the side who are 6th in our division.

I'd love to have Ian Watson back in our squad. Exactly the sort of player we could do with on the left.
