Defender Terry Galbraith has signed a one year extension to his contract which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2019-20 season

Terry joined the club in December 2012. Since then he has played 247 times for us and scored 55 goals .

I think this was the team when Galbraith made his debut for the club, some good players in that team.


Darlo Team :
Norton
Harrison
Galbraith
Gott
Brown (c)
Tait
Nicholls
Scott
Thompson
Dowson
Purewal

SUBS: Reay, Porter, Keltie, Emms, Clarke

Some good players at that level. Galbraith one of the few to move up the leagues successfully.

I would have liked to have seen Gott given more of a chance. Not given s chance by Gray once we got promoted.

I thought he left at his own request due to work commitments?

Agree though, was a very classy player and one who could have come with us through a few leagues.

Gott wanted more game time. He didn't want the extra travelling to be a bit part player so the work excuse was used.
He played at that level with Spenny for long enough after leaving us.

I liked Harrison too and thought he’d be able to step up.

Every outfield player in that team was decent. Norton was rubbish though.

Who was Clarke? Doesn't ring any bells.

Harrison was good enough for evostik D1N (or D1E as it is now) but he had issues with travel - I am sure the moment we were promoted he seemed to be out the door (similar to Emms).

Surprised Clark Keltie was there when Galbraith made his debut. I had it in my head Keltie joined a lot later in the season than when Galbraith did.

Bit harsh to say Norton was rubbish. He was ok for Northern League. Had a mistake in him, but who at that level didn't?

Good news about Galbraith committing to the club for another season, as he has been one of our most consistent players so far this season. I was surprised that he has scored 55 times, I guess we have won more penalties that I thought.

Put it this way - when we replaced him with Mark Bell, it was definitely an upgrade. Norton was undoubtedly a weak link in that side.

Any ideas who this means we have contracted for next season? By my reckoning It would be:

Contracted
Maddison
Galbraith
Hughes
Burn
Wheatley
Elliott
Glover
Nicholson
Thompson
Ainge

Unsure:
Trotman
O'Hanlon
Vaulks
Henshall

Currently on loan
Kokolo
Smith
Palmer
Saunders

Ah yes - I remember him now.

Who was the other forward we brought in a bit later on that season, local lad from Darlington?

Looking at that list, you'd probably put question marks over Burn and Maddison in terms of quality but the others on there (Glover excepted as he's one for the future) make the basis of a decent team.

Not Michael Sweet is it? Currently scoring for fun for Consett.

Bell was definitely an upgrade, but he would have been on 99% of keepers in the league at that time. I just thought rubbish was a harsh appraisal of Norton. Rather like Jamieson, his good work was forgotten in favour of his errors. He can't have been that rubbish, or South Shields wouldn't have taken him with all their money.

Yeah pretty much agree. Think you would have to add Henshall to that list too as I'd imagine he is another who has a contract for next season but not entirely sure. Would happily offload Burn if a rich northern league team wanted him. Never seen a CB so poor in the air.

I still have hope for Maddison. Reminds me a bit of Jameson, A good shot stopper, good 1v1, but needs to do better on his positioning and his handling. Or perhaps this is what we should expect at NLN level, after all we were spoilt by having Pears here last season.

Would certainly like to see Trotman signed up again for next season. Although won't he be finishing his Degree soon so that by depend on what he plans to do afterwards. Vaulks, i think should be given a chance and Glover needs to start playing a bigger part to help him develop. He's in an awkward catch 22 at the moment where he's probably not fully ready for the physicality of the league, but from what others have said is too good for the youth team.

If we are to persist with 3-5-2 and we can get Trotman confirmed for next year that would give us:

-------------------------- Maddison -------------------------

------------ Vaulks/Loanee, Hughes, Galbraith ------------

Trotman -------------------------------------------- Loanee

-------------- Wheatley - Nicholson - Elliott ----------------

-------------- Ainge/Loanee ---- Thompson/Loanee -----------

Subs: Yth Keeper, Vaulks/Loanee, Glover, Henshall, Striker/Loanee


Looks like a mid-table side to me if we can get them performing consistently to a reasonable level. And if that's what we can afford then that's fine with me.

At that time/at that level, Craig Gott was excellent.

And give her her due, his partner/wife/girlfriend used to come and sit in the open seats behind the goal of a midweek game to watch him.

And speaking of Jamie Clarke...
