Always looked OK to me on the odd occasions I've seen him play but never made the breakthrough with Bignot, Parslow and even Toto preferred at full-back this season.

Southwell has shown you can rebuild your career after being released so good luck to him.

Bit disappointing that we offer these supposedly promising youth team players a contract, and they never really get an opportunity in the first team. Is it a case of they're not good enough, or they've not being given the chance to develop? Or even that we're taking a punt on them reaching the required standard in the space of a single season?

Good luck to the lad,

Good luck Paul. Shame you didn't really get a chance to show what you can do.

We just don't have the means to develop players without a reserve team. The odd Trophy game here and there is all they can hope for. Unless they are ready to go straight in the first team, then there's not much point in having them in the Conference. Had we got back in the league, then things would be different, with more money to spend and a viable second string set of fixtures. It's imperative we get out of this boghole ASAP.

In Walker's case he's arguably suffered because of how superb Magnay has been all season.

I completely agree about the single season bit though.  Not enough time, never will be.  Unfortunately it's a reflection of the funding gap at this level.  Much more money needs to filter down to lads emerging from the youth to ensure they don't drift out of the game after a single year.  

In the case of Town, it could well be that the saving from the likes of Walker, Winnfarah, Humble etc. will be enough to keep a Gowling.  Short term thinking but ultimately if it gets us out this league no-one will complain.
