Could never accuse Heaton of being powder puff here. Daz he have a release clause in his contract?

Kidderminster Harriers fan in peace here.
Weeks a go there was rumours of Harriers signing a St Mirren defender and as most rumours evaporated into thin air.
Yesterday Josh Heaton was at Harriers match against Stockport.

He will be a good signing for you, as you push for promotion.

I’m surprised to see him move back to this league. I would’ve expected him to land at a conference national outfit at the least.

Think that only teams in this league would have seen him play so not really a surprise if it happens

On our forum regarding Heaton, someone has said Darlington only got 25K for Josh as the rest would be based on appearances etc? Anyone here know if this is the case?

We heard 75k but obviously don't know in what format. It may therefore be true, as would explain why he hasn't had a chance.

If our club got early wind of the St Mirren desire to move him on and the full 75 was based on appearances it may also explain some of the turn about in our finances, especially if this was going to mean losing out on as much as 50k.

Do we have a sell on clause if St. Mirren sell him on?

They may try to recoup some money by selling but I think they'll mutually terminate his contract thereby leaving on a free and avoid any additional sell on clause. Basically what we got upfront is all we are going to get, which is a shame because he has the potential to be a pretty decent defender and worth more than pittance.

That's how winning is done!"

Does the sell-on clause only cover St.Mirren or other future clubs?

Our main ITK guy on the forum has said Heaton won’t be leaving permanently. He’s usually pretty good with his information, so perhaps Josh may get another chance.

Or even a clause to say he should never play against Darlo! ;)
Nice to see the lad getting another chance in football, no matter where it is :clap:

Josh says he wants to remain at Saints, but wouldn’t mind a loan spell if it helps him fight for his place.

Did see a suggestion on our forum claiming he may have been good enough for us, or for the bench, but not at the point it was worth costing us 50K in add ons. Granted his two games for us were piss poor, but he was far from the only one who had a shocking time of it.

He has hardly played this season so is rusty and not match fit...………...Saunders and Nelson, if he plays, will run rings round him! I recall he was very good in the air, watch TW tactically select Ainge up front, I know who my money in on as to who will win the aerial battle!

Didn't have a terrible game today, apart from being skinned by Nicholson for the 3rd

Thought he got distracted by Saunders at the far post corner when Smith nipped into near post for his goal!

Apart from yesterday all of our defenders have been distracted during games, nothing new in our league

Yeh I noticed that, I think that was mainly a lack of match sharpness from Heatons point of view. Large defenders always struggle against nippy forwards - he really should have taken Nicholson out if he wasn't going to get the ball.

With this ref, could easily have been yellow card, if not red, as very close to edge of the box & last man. Josh may have thought better of it, especially being signed on loan. No doubt he was skinned but Nico is on fire at the moment and quite a handful!
