Todd Wields Axe
by Scott Thornberry - 23rd July 2009
Both wing backs were brought into the club in recent weeks but have failed to impress Todd during their brief stint. It is tough on them considering they had faced Sunderland and Newcastle, but it was apparent quite quickly that they did not fit into the mould that Colin Todd wanted.
Speaking to The Northern Echo Todd said “I have made decisions on Ben and Craig. But Bower and Arnison will be signed on which strengthens us, we have seen that. Bower and Arnison did extremely well.”
Todd will also not be pursuing his interest in Nick Chadwick, who played in last nights goalless draw at the Arena.
The gaffer also expressed concern at the Administrators who yesterday stated that we could start the season in administration. With players at the club only being here on gentlemans agreements Todd is unhappy that his may cause unsettlement. “We can’t be in admin by the time the season starts. We can’t alarm people and put things in people’s minds that are not right. We are all confident, but there has always been people negative. It’s the wrong thing to say. I’m just being honest.”
“I have said to them that we are vulnerable with scouts because the players are not signed on yet. But we could have something going here. We have agreed things with them all.”
