Just out of curiosity really, who'd be your top 5 and then your worst 5 players we had in the National League - maybe the best players will inspire confidence that we could (and still will be) able to attract class players, and the worst players will satisfy us that we will never see them again!

Top 5
1. Amond
2. Arnold
3. Bogle
4. Disley
5. Townsend

Worst 5
1. Jamal Fyfield
2. Richard Brodie
3. Greg Pearson
4. Oumare Tounkara
5. Louie Souares

Hard to rank the worst as there were so many poor players, but for me Fyfield was absolutely awful

Omar was better when we got promoted and I think Hearn was a better player Amond, he had more quality on the ball and more athleticism, if he'd stayed fit and then played in better teams who knows how many goals we'd have scored.

The worst? Where to start! Fyfield, Brodie and Soures are all absolutely nailed on. Straker's got to be in there and I'd have Serge Makofo.


Top: Hearn, Nolan, Disley, Townsend and Arnold
Worst: Fyfield, Soares, Brodie, Straker, Makofo

Macca, Tait, Toto, Gowling, Robertson, Arnold, Dis, Clay, Nolan, Podge, Omar.

The best starting XI in my lifetime.

For me the definite are - Serge Makofo and Richard Brodie in the worst group.
                                     - Nathan Pond and Connor Townsend in the best.

After that the lists are very difficult.

I had forgotten some of the names mentioned, out of interest how many players did we go through during our time in the National League?

Townsend is the best outfield player we've had in the last 15 years.

Amond, Bogle, Hearn, Disley, Pearson....all great players for us in the Conference.  But Townsend was absolutely streets above them and anyone else on the pitch in every game he played.  That's why he's gone onto have the career he has.

I thought Carl Magnay was class for us able to play RB, LB, and cover CB when needed.

When we had Bradley Wood and Sam Hatton covering both sides it wasn't to Magnay joined us he was a class above that season what we had before.

1 Hearn
2 Amond
3 Bogle
4 Magnay
5 Disley

Townsend would be next on the list but him and Pond where only on loan.


1 Kempson
2 Spencer
3 Soares
4 Gobern
5 Ridley

Every 'Worst 5' has made me shudder.

Connell gets in mine because he played in a excrement team still, and just oozed class, was naturally gifted at that level, and a joy to watch, loved him!

Huge shouts for so many to be fair - Pearson, Magnay, Amond, Hearn

it's really hard to label any...

Apparently, we have 183 players that played for us in the 6 years!
