he's torn up his contract with Yeovil to sign for us - fair play to the lad - he obviously just wants to play football and he's from our region. Looks like a good signing to me.

Looks like he was perhaps involved in the first team towards the end of the season and got a bit of a taste for first team football.

Lets hope he fits in well and makes the position his own.

I have to say, i'm very impressed with the signings so far this year. Guys with ambition, wanting to play every week, and crucially the right age so they might be sold on for profit at a later date. Great stuff from TW :clap:

Think you are spot on with that assessment. Not the finished product but young and skilled enough to give Andy Collett something to work with. On paper, looks like a good signing & a welcome addition to the squad which seems almost complete. :clap:

TW is a real wheeler dealer, he appears to have done a great job in the market.My only worry is the travel for players but have to say most dont seem to be bothered by it.

If they are ambitious I suppose they can see a good route through Darlo now as we must be getting a reputation.

Seems like another good signing by TW. Another one at a good age that we can hopefully develop further.

Now for that central midfielder and our squad will be complete.

Will certainly be interesting to see if James Caton attends training on Saturday. Missing from the awards night in May, missing for the first session back last Saturday....

He is on holiday in Turkey and he tweeted about a boot camp so obviously getting fit so let's give him a chance

Well if he doesn't attend training you'd assume that was breach of contract after a point.

But no reason to think he won't so let's hope he can make a contribution this season.

Personally feel as though he has had his chance and we can't afford to carry passengers next season.

It's a tough ask for him to break in to the side with Nicholson & Henshall ahead of him for that left-wing position.

Another signing which, on paper, looks a good one. Glad we've got a permanent keeper in

The squad has undergone more extensive modifications than I imagined this summer, but, at this stage at least, it looks like an impressive off season

I'd guess TW has said he doesn't need to attend and he can find himself a club.

If he knows he isn't going to get a look in there's little point him wasting his own time and TWs by coming to training

He's on holiday, unless you expect him to fly in for training. We've had it after season has started before. Nowt like over analysing things.

The date when pre-season training due to start was well known, so why book holidays then?
Hardly demonstrates any commitment to the club, forethought or planning on Caton's part.

No on ever said that about other, more popular players like Brown, Scott or Thommo, when they had holidays during previous seasons.

Was just about to say that - I think (could be wrong) Thompson and Turnbull missed parts of pre season last year for holiday

Yes but they were true part time players not on a lot of money at the start, with day jobs. Day job holidays take preference.

Whereas Caton, does he have a day job? Does it pay more than his football?

Once the football starts paying more than the day job, or if football is the only job then players can no longer have an excuse to take holidays during pre-season IMO.

I hear what you are saying Q and you are right in as much as some of the lads will have tied holiday times. However, they are all semi professional and the same rules must apply. If it's good enough for Thommo, Scott and Brown it should be also ok for Caton
It's just that Canton is nearly everyone's bad boy at the moment... I am willing to give him a clean break and see how he starts the season. The lad is clearly a good footballer and on his day he was worth his place in the team.
Let's see how the season starts, I'm sure after a few games others other than Caton will be receiving some stick from certain members of our support.

Other players have done it before, i really don't see it as an issue at this level, he's entitled to holiday, and i'm sure it was agreed with TW rather than him just not showing up.

If no one comes in for him, i'm sure he'll be given another crack.

Exactly, you cant have one rule for Caton then let others have holidays during preseason or even during the season. Thompson, Brown, Scott and Turnbull have all missed games for holidays and for reasons not associated with their day jobs. Plus Caton obviously hasnt gone away on his own so may have been tied to the dates his other half could get off work.

You can't expect players at our level to only take holidays in the off season. I seem to remember Gary Brown used to be unavailable for the team during the Cheltenham Festival.

Please check, because he never has missed a match for Cheltenham! Gray wouldn't allow it.

I remember him missing the Guisborough game in 2012 when we got hammered 4-1! But that was booked prior to signing for Darlington in the summer, IIRC.
