Billy Chadwick been recalled by Hull. Big blow for us losing him and Nyal Bell in quick succession. Both contributed in our turn of form. Sounds like Chadwick might be going to Grimsby on loan

Midfielder Martin Smith confirmed as signing from Salford City. Take’s JR’s signings to 9 in total..

Expect to see some movement of players out of the club in the coming week now to balance the books

Strange one.

His CV is hardly glistening. Time will tell.

Does it really balance the books thou as any player under contract with require that contract paid up before they will leave, same with any manager that gets the sack.

Well it depends. If a club is willing to sign them then they may mutually terminate their contract with no need for compensation to be paid, which happens quite a lot at our level.

Also, many of the players were looking to move on will be on higher wages than the ones we’ve brought in, so in the long run it’s likely we’ll actually save a bit of money in that sense.

Obviously anyone we have to pay up to release we may need to take a hit on, but we’ll see.

I think a number will go out on loan at least getting a portion of their wages off our books. I think the likes of Boden etc could get another permanent deal elsewhere.

Happy with that, we can all see where the obvious flaw is in this team and this in turn should push Michael Phillips further up the pitch into his more natural position.. Hoping and assuming that Josh Meekings is a right footed centre back to give us some balance which we've been missing all season.

And the signings of Maxim Kouogun and Josh Debayo recently too, give us alot more experience and depth now at the back.

I can't see Kouogun or Debayo featuring much over the next few weeks, the pair of them need to get up to speed with their fitness - Debayo in particular was blowing out of his backside less than 15 minutes after coming on as a sub at Maidenhead.
