Thread for some potential signings.

York - Danny Parslow and Jon Parkin - thoughts? Past it, good to have as back up?

Parkin can't run anymore - he'd be worse than Bernie Slavin

He's staying full-time but this time with Carlsberg.

Doubtless South Shields will be priming their chequebooks too. Spennymoor will need an eighth-choice central defender and sixth-choice keeper too.

But definitely a few good players from Gateshead I'd like to see end up with us too.

Jon Mellish and Robbie Tinkler were excellent in defence. Tom White is a handy midfielder too, as is Greg Olley.

Maybe we have to "release" a few ourselves first when new Manger arrives before we can sign anyone? Stating the obvious I know. Or can the Board and AW not make some decisions now?

I doubt the players who are out of contract will be hanging around to see if they can earn a new contract with a new manager, the squad wan't good enough at the end of the day, so we need to get rid of all the players out of contract.

Whilst tinkler and mellish are top young players and would be a great addition for darlo there has been interest from conference and league 2 clubs and i hope they get a move higher up

Won't disagree. Doesn't mean I wouldn't want to see them in a Darlo shirt.

Mellish, Olley, Rigg, Tinkler and White would be very good at this level, so hopefully we can maybe snag 1 or 2 of them

Isn't Parkin about 246 yrs old and about 38 stone now...Not sure what he would bring to the team apart from a takeaway and a slab of LCL after a match

Parslow could do a job as back up if fully fit - certainly preferable to Jonny Burn but I’d assume his wages might be a stumbling block

I'm guessing taking players from York, the big question is, will they be interested in leaving Professional Football to sign Semi-Pro for us

So given we have not issued a "Released List" are we to assume all players TW signed last summer got 2 year contracts...……………..oh NO!.

I've seen them both play, neither will be getting another full time contract.

Could probably get one more season out of Parslow. Committed, experienced defender and a leader on the pitch, his age and a injury lay offs are starting to get the best of him now but he'd be a shout on a 'pay as you play' kind of deal or alongside some kind of coaching role.

Parkin is done. He's practically admitted it himself. Seems set on forging a career in the media now, has a podcast he seemed more committed to than playing.

Be interesting to see what happens with Bartlett though.

No they didn't all sign two years last summer.

Not all clubs announced released/retained list they just get on with it player by player. We will largely need a manager first before we can do too much.

Chester have released:

Jamal Crawford

Alex Downes

George Green

Rhain Hellawell

Steven Howson

Connor King

Sean McAllister

Ben McKenna

Jon Moran

John Pritchard

Dominic Smalley


Would have Mckenna, always looks dangerous against us. George Green is meant to have ability but has struggled with injury

Would think that Watson at York will get first call on Heed players he wants. But would have no problems with there management duo arriving.

Only one I would want from York is Bartlet. They weren't very much better than us this season although they were full time.

He'd be another Henshall I think. All the potential years ago but doesn't seem to be able to actually fulfill it anywhere he has been. It's a risk and one which rarely pays off when you look at his track record.

He was originally from Halifax (I think) before moving to Everton so I don't know where his next move will be geographically.

Nobody else on that list jumps out at me Howson is pretty old and slow now and Dom Smalley I think has been on loan at Hyde this season.

See I'd be happy to have a loan keeper as our first choice next season. All the loan keepers we have had the past couple of seasons have been very good / wanted to prove a point. It seems a really sensible place to save some money.

Where is that lad who was from Darlington who was on Newcastle's books? I am sure I read he may have moved on but I am not sure where to. EDIT: I have just found him...he got released from Newcastle and is now on Manchester United books - I wonder if there could be a loan opportunity from there again?

He's at Man U. Forgot his name but saw him at Brackley a couple of years back.

I'd still be interested in Ferguson if he became available too. Think he signed on an 18 month deal for them so he would be one that needs a contract renewal this summer. Can play anywhere on the left side so covers a couple or positions.

Wouldn't want Parkin or Parslow. Both a bit past their best.
