I think the players we have signed from non league have potential, they certainly know how to put it in the net. What they are not expected to do is jump up 2 to 3 tiers all at once and hit the ground running, hence why we have only seen Gibson and Spokes make the squad.

Give them all 6 months and we will hopefully see which ones are capable enough.

The problem we have lies in the fitness of the experienced players we have at the club, both new recruits and the existing cohort.

A team with Hendrie, Hanson, Scannell, Mohsni, Rose and Waterfall would look a lot better than the raw recruits we are having to  blood at the minute.

Lets see what we look like going into last week of transfer window.

Yep, him and Pollock both injured for todays game.

Waterfall with a rib injury and Pollock with a rolled ankle apparently.

Bit early for wild panic. The only player signed from non league who got on actually looked alright.

Yep, Gibson looked decent. More concerned with our midfield.

Yes, you are correct, but the same thing was said more than once in the ground at the time. I heard it nearly every game at the beginning of the Buckley spell.


Exactly! Three of AB's regular players that season, Tilson, Alexander and Cockrill came from non-league.
