14. Connor

18. Duerden

1. Carter

6. Lupton

7. C.Phillips

8. Coward

19. Lucock

17. Mcavoy

10. Shackley

15. Rooney

13. Olstrom

 

bench

3. Mossop

4. Morris

9. Mattinson

11. B.Phillips

12. Stack

16. Forber

20. Rowlandson

think we should give Duerden, Lucock a start to get more of a look at them.

I think you have Miller and Carter the wrong way round . Carter can play wing if we have another fullback who's better , but he's a better and more experienced fullback than Miller . We must look at getting Eliott much more involvement this year , I understand your thinking , but I'd look at the service he gets first before putting him in a specialist position at the back . If Carter is fit he plays one , as it gives him the freedom to roam in the line in attack and play what he says , and use his footwork and elusiveness . We saw that a few times last year . Just being a free spirit in the opposition 20. The halves need to help out Eliott and our other line backs .

Like the idea of starting with all the amateur lads . They need blooding . We know what our stalwarts can do .

We will have to issue the players with gags as the ref is Mr Hewer.

Will that Brocklebank be playing we were linked to ? Wonder if they're still sniffing amateurs from these teams

Is it not John Brocklebank (senior) who was the coach who has packed in as Buck Armstrong has just been appointed their coach.

Sad to say but I'm starting to lose interest with Town. I have never missed a home game for years, and been a regular away supporter over the last couple, plus a regular sponsor. I hope I'm proved wrong, but nothing is yet tempting me back down to Derwent Park this season.....

I can really relate to these sentiments, and I am sure your views are also shared by other fans.
I have been a supporter of the club for fifty five years, but I can honestly say that I can't remember feeling any more despondent than I do now regarding the beginning of and expectations for a new season.
I really hope that my fears are proved unfounded. Motivational and promotional comments from our club would be very much appreciated.

So the club sign up a squad of 22 players early then get slated for not signing anymore? Suppose it's a no win situation really.

I remember a few seasons ago when there were around 28 signed which nobody had a problem with other than the players who couldn't get a game so then went back to play amateur. Then came another point in the season when Town were short on numbers and had to go back with our tail between our legs to see if they would play.

What's the happy medium?

We play in TEN days . What is going on ? Why can't we be let into the secret ? That's what I don't get .An update on plans would at least mollify people , whatever the content of any statement . We're doing this ... We're not doing this ... This is what we're working on .... Nowt at all is happening ... Anything at all . It's no criticism or comment on substance at all , we just want to know the general plan now , whatever it is . It seems all preseason we've been out in the cold and relying on rumour and gossip to sustain us . Times moving , things must come to a head surely .
