Just hope that if any do go that we have some equally good replacements lined up

Tw has proved he is very good at picking up decent players. I'm sure he'll have possible replacements lined up if required.

It's similar to the one Glen Hoddle runs in Spain, Moke from York was picked up from there..

With Gray rapidly using up his budget signing players from elsewhere we may be free from further York City poaching. Maybe we will be talking to scouts that attend these V9 events.

The same Lee Tucker that played for us presumably.

Signed from Boro in the early 90’s have a feeling he arrived at the same time as Mark Sunley although I could be completely wrong

Correct, he played in our relegation season after the Brian Little era.

I think if memory serves me well that he was a winger, I thought he was ok but the wheels had fell off after two years of success and we were struggling every week.
