To be honestly, of late he's been the stronger of the 2 centre halves
Yes, he's a clogger but he's generally reliable but I do think we need an upgrade if we do get out the relegation spots and want to progress.

He’s had a dip in form but overall he’s had a decent season IMO.

I think whilst we’ve been poor defensively, there’s very little blame that belongs with him and Pollock.

I think that’s very generous and you could put together a decent showreel of their errors this season.

Solid League Two centre-back. It's not his fault he's not been paired with a central defensive partner who compliments his lack of pace and is better on the ball than him.

I remember when we had 4 centre backs of which 2 were comfortable on the ball (Handyside & Futcher then Smith) and 2 who were more no-nonsense defenders (Lever & Rodger).

Tbh they’ve had hardly anyone committed to the battle in front of them and no one to coach them as the previous manager (allegedly) wanted to line his pockets and not bother with the team.



In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

He’s a good player. He’s been woefully exposed by what is in front of him. He’ll be part of a good pairing with Pollock when Hurst sorts us shape out.

As he's signed an extension into next season, and providing we stay up..

In League Two the aim has to be to try and build a side to get promoted. Do I think we need better than Waterfall in our team to get promoted? Yes. Do I think he could be a capable back up centre half when we're short for a few games a season? Yes, Would you build a promotion chasing side around him? No

Decent pro, but when he’s one of the best in the squad, it says more about the squad.

Not sure how I feel on this one.

Agree with Bigdog that we need to be looking for better, regardless of what our aims are for next season.  Decent pro and with the right partner not someone I would grumble at having either in or around the side.  But the Luke Waterfall's of the world are quite common at this level, I can't imagine there would be a scramble of clubs trying to snap him up.  

Sorta sums the club up over the last 20 years really.  We don't tie up contracts for the likes of Amond and Vernam, but we do for someone like Waterfall.
