Re: Darlington V Tamworth Match Thread

.... It would have been quite understandable if the rugby game had kicked off at 2pm, but it was actually a kicked off at 3pm, but I realise the half dozen or so rugby club members take precedence over the 100 or so footie fans in the bar. It's about time that the rugby club realises that it's us t...

Similarly when, and it is when we sign new players the length and terms of any contracts need to be thought through and signed off in accordance wit...

Taking Stock: Consolidation

Recent events regarding departures are nothing new when a new management team take charge. Our situation is no different. On the playing side: TW/AW have had a couple of weeks to make assessments of who is good enough, who is in it for the long haul etc. I expect others will depart along the way, li...

Re: Tommy Wright with Alan White as assistant

It would be more sensible to have a network of people they trust in different regions rather than a set 'scout'. I am really confused about Wright anyway.
