Can we afford him? I would imagine he will be snapped up and I like Haney at full back but we do miss Andy's attacking play and pace.

sorry Mike but Andy is a better fullback IMHO :rolleyes: . Not saying Haney isnt a decent solid player and always gives 100%

I agree. I didn't say Haney was better, however he is a good replacement who can do the job. Ballard comes at a cost as does any player of his level. If it was as easy as just signing players no matter what the cost then yes.

Barrow have a budget to work to and I feel if we are to bring anyone in I would like to see a forward. I'm sure Holty balances his team with skills and cost and as far as the fullback position is concerned I'm happy with Haney..

Not been in the side for quite a few weeks. Sorry to see him go but Richie Hawkyards form at the moment would have kept him out of the full back position.

Good luck Andy

get him in the centres, not alot of other options

Ballard would be a great player to have in the centre for us ! if he could put his travelling issus behind him then he would definetly be a boost to the team !

on the travelling, isnt there a few out of towners in the current team who live down his way... ??

according to barrow raider skid, with a team full of locals, our salary will be low, we only have a few out of towners so should easily be able to accomodate a player of ballards stature!

Having said that; if Holty pulls a rabbit out the hat I would not be upset to be proven wrong but my experience says he would want a contract that we couldn't really afford.

Local players are cheaper than out of towners, does that mean we could afford the wages Ballard would want? That's a different question entirely.
