Sometimes he did.

Other times he didn't, he just made up the numbers.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Seem to remember he converted to a decent centre half who used to confuse the opposition with unorthodox clearances. They liked him at Boston.- when he went there.

He always was a decent CB!

He was an established National League CB for 10 years before he played as a striker for Harrogate...

Was it injuries, age or just the purple patch ending which limited his effectiveness as a ST by the time he got to us?

He fitted right in at Boston. "HAVE IT"
