Re: Spennymoor Away (KO 1pm)

Effective segregation and stewarding would be of much more value than tinkering with kick-off times.

Re: First managerial casualty of the season

During a facebook discussion among the Blyth fans about how unadventurous they were in their opening day defeat, Robbie Dale joined in and put the boot in. He said: "I told the manager I couldn't play another season for him, as I hated everything about the way he works, training was awful." He's now...

Re: Kaine Felix

Wonder how the Felix transfer came about. Very unusual for a player to sign for a new club in the close season and then move on without playing a game. Possibly a change in his circumstances that meant he wanted to be back up north or some sort of disagreement between him and his new employers. Eit...

They would have some ground issues to address first. The ground as it stands has a capacity of 2,300, including 266 covered seats. They have been rising rapidly through the leagues in recent years following investment on the playing side. According to their website they also have a backroom staff of...

Re: Potential new signings

Looking at some of the other clubs in our league, a couple have lost some key players. Kettering have lost several of their best performers and also had to change managers when Culverhouse walked away. Brackley have lost 3 of their top performers, including one to Boston, who have been recruiting st...

Another of our former players has just signed for Shildon. Wilson Kneeshaw has been playing in grassroots football. Seem to remember him having a fair bit of skill and pace before suffering a bad Achilles injury.

Re: Nathan Lowe

Prior to this season Lowe had 15 goals in 67 games for Shields and at FC United he had a goal every 4 games. You could see he has an eye for goal by what he did in our game at Gateshead.

Re: Nathan Lowe

AA was definitely interested but Kiddie will have oddles of vibes from their cup exploits and I guess Lowe was also looking to stay full-time. Shame because I think he would have added some exrra physicality to the central midfield along with some goals which we don't have currently.

A tough, aggressive six-footer, effective at left-back and in central defence, sounds just the job. By all accounts he was very consistent in a Whitby side that went very close to the playoffs and also had some good experience under his belt before that. We're getting plenty of good business done ea...

Re: NLN playoffs

Williamson is a big follower of the Japanese concept of Kaizen – or change for better – constantly seeking continuous improvement everyday.

If he pitches in with Singh and the Poolies he may also eventually be looking to follow the path to hara-kiri.

Re: Hybrid next season

Where is the "less than 200 donors" figure from? That would equate to an average donation of around £700 each last year. I'm not saying it's wrong but I don't recall seeing that figure for the number of individual donors as opposed to the number of individual pledges which last year was over 700.

That would be a great signing for central midfield, something different to Moke, Rose. I think Lowe's based in Wigan and obviously he's been on a full-time deal at Shields. The player that the Shields fans seem most disappointed to see released is Danny Rose's brother Mitch. Sounds quite versatile i...
