Got sent this by Barry who doesn't have an account, but has supported Town for 73 years!

Might be worth offering a trial to Colby Bishop, a 22 year old at Leamington FC who scored 29 goals in National League North this season. Leamington is a small club of part-time players which is punching above its weight in a tough division which sports many far more wealthy clubs with much greater resources. Manager Paul Holleran predicts a bright future for Bishop, and has said he will not stand in his way if he is offered the chance in a higher division. Many fine players have come up the ranks from non-league, not just Jamie Vardy. Jolley should be spreading his search wide for the most important area the club has lacked since the sad departure of Amond (what a disgrace that was, to let such a great finisher leave!) and Bogle. Bothe experienced life in non-league and became better players as a result.

I watched Bromsgrove Sporting in their play off final recently, and their striker, Cowley, was a class above (I believe this is the evo stop level). Stevenage have now snapped him up which I reckon is a really good move by them.

This has to be the way forward for the club. Signing young up and coming players who are hungry and want to prove they can make a career in the EFL. You only have to look at the modest outlay and return we got for Omar Bogle to prove it can work.

Often non-league teams do not stand in the way of their players if they have a chance to enhance a players career and often league clubs can pick up a gem for free or a nominal fee.

I think we are going to have to get creative by signing younger unknown players who we can train and mold rather than signing a Welsh, Jones, Collins coming to the end of there careers.

Buckley Mark 1 was a similar setup and that proved to be an awesome team that helped us up to Championship level. A feat that would be near impossible now given our size and stature but with the right management of younger players we could hold our own in league one for sure.

I just hope Jolley has one eye on grass roots football.

Don't bash the Bishop!


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Agree. There was a lad called Max Wright at Scarborough and Boston and Harry Clifton at Grantham recently

Exactly the type of player we should be looking at, problem is everyone else is after strikers from non league due to the ‘Vardy effect’.


"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"
