Working were relegated from the conference. I would be very surprised if they have players to help us league 2. Even more so if our ambition is greater than just staying up again.


Woking were top 10 until about Xmas, they were as high as second at one point I think. They had a Town-like collapse. 4 relegation places means it is easy to get relegated from the NL.

Even relegated teams have good players.

I thought Chez Isaac was outstanding for Woking when they were doing well in the first half of the season. He really went downhill in the second half but he's another midfielder I'd keep an eye on.

Saw him a couple of times on TV and he looked impressive for the National League.  With 40+ games in one season at 20/21 and 12 goals he could well make in League 2.  He looks like the kind of young, eager player we need.

The Get Carter film was from the book written by a school friend of mine at Barton Grammar School.


And GY was one of the options when they were deciding where to set the film.

The original book WAS set in GY, I believe.

His name was Ted Lewis, there's a book just been published about him recently.

The book was set in Scunthorpe.

I met up with him in London after leaving school.

He decided to sell the book rights because he needed the money, not knowing what a success it would turn out to be.

In later years returned to Barton.

Something for me to chat about at the Barton Grammar School reunion in September! Problem is, the old scholars planning this event have booked a hotel for 12.00 o'clock on a Saturday. Could be a brief visit!

Really hope we are in for Charlie carter this summer. Spent the season with our new number 2 Anthony Limbrick at Woking and looks/sounds a real prospect. 21 year old attacking midfielder who came through their ranks and who scored 12 goals in 43 appearances for them in the national league last year. Their fans rate him highly and is currently out of contract although they’ve offered him another deal so compensation would be needed.

Looks good on the ball, strong, and obviously has an eye for goal. There is a lovely 6 minute video on YouTube showing his goals, assists and general good play. Certainly ticks the boxes in terms of the athletism and age MJ is keen on. Also seems a very level headed and intelligent lad listening to some of his interviews. Spoke highly of Limbrick in them. We desperately need a creative midfielder who can chip in with 10 or so goals. Really hope we can get him!


I may be missing something but if he is out of contract why would compensation be needed ?

Because of his age... Think its classed as compensation for his development.

Yes Scunny and where Jack dies is out at the gravel pits out past App Frod Steelworks. The pub outside the station (in the film Jack ask for a straight glass and stares down the locals) must be the Bridge Hotel - I expect its kicked off in there a few times with Town fans. Cracking film, I've watched it so many times I can quote most of the dialogue - kids think it's very strange, that and Tora Tora Tora (where I quote Japanese of course...)
