Probably the right decision in hindsight. He was 7 months away from leaving for free with no compensation or sell-on clause. It would have been preferable for him to move in January after the run of games we have coming up but you can’t begrudge him for wanting to move now. Things never stay still in football and there was no guarantee that opportunity would have been there for him in January.

Sousa is coming in, which is a direct replacement. It will also free Campbell to play out on the right as we saw on Saturday with Charman & Maguire to fight it out for the centre-forward starting berth.
I'm looking forward to the fight to become the number one centre forward. Any idea when this may start when are we going to see Maguire actually play?
He will be available on Saturday I should imagine.
Thought he was supposed to have been available a couple of weeks ago. We'll see.
I don’t think that is actually true. Danny O’Connor did an injury update prior to the Cambridge game and said Maguire was “close” to playing. Alun decided not to risk him and Maguire did a running session on the pitch pre-match.

Good luck Justin!

End of the day, the guy has came from Bermuda to make it in the game, and this represents a step up to full time pro football - even if it is a placcy, made up, bankrolled club.

Hopefully we have a sell on clause, that's more important than the actual fee IMO.

Just to echo what everyone has said, best of luck & hope this is the first step in a long and successful career. An exciting player to watch & real impact player from the bench. Probably easier to get back to Bermuda from Solihull👋

Ok thanks for that hope to see him soon.
