2019 Squad and signings

Recommended Posts

Crooky in a dual role, latest signing. Good move to involve him on the coaching side. Vastly experienced,maybe fresh ideas in the coaching capacity, listening to players from other sides last season, all the talk was "watch Hewitt and Crook" so they clearly offer more than some of the detractors realise.

Happy to have Crooky onboard, especially as he turned down Hornets to stay with us ?

Good move especially when you consider how long the guy played at pests. 

Still feel we need another 6 as Crook steps back from playing

Not sure about the turning us down bit, but what I would say is Crookey is a hell of a nice guy, and hedoes have a good boot.

Just reading between the lines Baron,said he had offers from Champ clubs and knowing his history at Hornets I reckon it's a good bet they were one of those clubs.

Agreed he is a nice chap and very experienced at this level.

Hmmmm don’t know what to make of this one if we sign another half back I will be really happy but if we don’t I see it being the same as last year or even worse. Crook isn’t going to develop speed over night and that’s what he lacked last season. Also I believe that hornets were interested because foster rated crook very highly especially listening to his interview after our home game with haven

Nice, looks promising. Big lad, if anything like his brother he will be aggressive and direct too with no lack of skill. Welcome aboard the Roughyeds express Ben!

Richie Hawkard becomes a Roughyed --- at last !

EIGHTEEN years ago, way back when Mike Ford was Oldham’s coach, a wide-eyed 14-year-old boy from Huddersfield trained with Roughyeds, hoping to follow in the footsteps of his uncle and become an Oldham player.

Quality player is Hawkyard. Tough as well which we definitely need more of.

Surprised at the quality of the new lads. Thought we'd go for a very similar squad and then add a couple of youngsters.
