Re: Retained list

Cassidy a very strange one. Notwithstanding all the debate about his goal scoring record, the fact he played 39 games last season suggests he was one of the first names on the team sheet. Strange.

Re: Retained list

Am I missing something no Hazell on the Contracted players list? Perhaps just being cautious until FA approval comes through.

Re: Jacob Hazel

Happy we have managed to get this deal done. Something like 34 goals in all competitions for Whitby, so even half of that in the NLN would make him an excellent signing. I would think we have afforded him due to the unexpected windfall from selling Hatfield. If so,well done to the club for reinvest...

Presume his clearance may not go through in time for him to play tomorrow? But would be good if he could manage that one game for us.
Registrations for transfers are closed so he can't play tomorrow
Noted thanks. Will settle for a Cassidy hat trick instead!

Re: Tommy Taylor signs new deal

Has signed a contract for two years which is a big positive for us. He’s sorted what had been a really problematic position and given he’s only 29 (fairly young for a keeper) there’s plenty more to come from him. Best permanent keeper for us since Adam Bartlett left in 2017, and Taylor definitely h...

Re: New Signing or Signings

Gramps I think we all agree that this all hinges on how many of the current squad are "re-signed" for next season. Untill that is known neither of us are right or wrong. Anyway off to listen to Darlo fans radio now!

Re: New Signing or Signings

I have sympathy for AA with Charman and Hatfield both leaving. But we have to accept we are faced with another rebuild. I disagree. We’ve lost two phenomenal players for this level but the general squad is in a far, far healthier place than the summer and early season. We’ve now got a solid keeper ...

Not being a bit negative here, if the loan signings leave at the end of the season, we’ll be in a muddle. Don't think you're being negative just realistic. With so many loan signings and with the fact that the players we have out on loan will not be staying with the club we inevitably face another ...

Darlo must be one of the most inconsistent sides in our league so probably a massive win after our recent poor streak. Keep the faith & wrap up warm.
Inconsistent to me is win a couple lose a couple, win a couple lose a couple. Two wins in to our last 13 that is not inconsistent!
