Re: Players on trial

AA also mentioned Tyrone is on trial at Scunthorpe at present. Suppose we have Tony McMahon to thank for that but you can’t blame the lad for trying to stay full time. Sounds like there are still offers in for several players who are still exploring their options but as AA says not quite as critical...

Re: Players on trial

The major concern I have with leaving signings to the last minute is that we get off to a slow start...again. I can't remember when we had a flying start to a season, and Alun's teams (even at Blyth) we slow starters. I know its the financial situation we are in, but I can't see us getting off to a...

Re: Rival Watch

Probably just shows how skint and desperate Dover are. At this rate we could probably do with a player like him just to make up the numbers in our squad, is no one else a bit concerned with a lack of player activity? Yes I had expected 3 or 4 more signings by now but probably the lack of friendlies...

Sadly it was not a surprise that there was abuse of our black players. Also sadly you seem to think it is somehow acceptable because it has happened in the past. Have we not moved forward at all in recent years. Also you seem to ignore that this abuse is also racist which makes it worse. You idiots ...

Re: Darlington V Tadcaster Albion - preseason friendly

I don’t think deleating the app is something that a club who are community based should be doing. We need to be seen to setting an example not skirting round the rules even if that means we may lose players at certain times.

Tadcaster would have been a another chance to run the rule over trialists and academy players. We are unlikely t...
