Right, time to get this blog going again. The season’s long gone, we know who we will be facing next year, however we’ve no pitch and hardly enough players for a team.
I’m going to start updating the site regularly just with bits of news from here and there. Hopefully it will be every other day!
So the pitch is on its way to being redone, in the latest of very technical updates on the official site it explained how layers have been taken off, sand has been oxygenated etc etc. It seems like the club are trying to show how creating a football pitch is a pretty technical task, after many fans last year couldn’t understand the problems we were having.
Interestingly the cod heads down the road are also putting in a new pitch, due to “problems” last season.
On the players front it looks like Evo is going to be training with Blackburn at the start of the season to win a contract. Good luck to him, a bold move by Ince to let him go considering Gary MacKenzie and Kirk Broadfoot hasn’t signed. Also one the way out could be Eardley who’s off to Birmingham.
Good news about captain Barry Ferguson might sign another year after a stop start season. We’ve also got a pre game again York on Saturday July 20th. York are managed by Nigel Worthington, (Aka Worthless – for younger readers he’s one of the worst managers we’ve had in recent years, Appleton / Hendry the other contender). It’s £12 on the gate for an adult which is a bit pricey for a pre-season knock-a-bout.
Names we’ve been linked with this week, Kevin Davies from Bolton free agent – No thanks, Aussie defender Michael Thwaite (who once scored and did this). So not a lot going on with plugging the gaping holes in the squad.
