Beat Braintree 4-3 didn’t go so know very little other than a trialing striker from several leagues below scored.

2-1 win at Hayes and Yeading behind closed doors. No information disclosed on lineups or trialists but Ashley Charles and Craig Fasanamade were the goal scorers.

We got beat 3-2 by Alfreton. Goals from a Trialist from Gloucester (;)) and big Dents

Team was a mix of 1st and 4 or 5 trialists with about 20 subs. Didn’t go as I’ve got Covid but sounded like a decent run out and alright game.

Bernard Mensah apparently. Looked really poor last time he played at this level but he was good for Aldershot a few years back.

Baking hot day, entirely uninspiring performance. We won but young keeper kept us in it first half. In fact I thought Tiernan Brookes our youth keeper was the bright spot of the day.
Some of these triallists are miles away from what we need, some of our youth players further away still.
The ex Accrington player looked physically handy.
We really need some class signing this week.

I’d never heard of him but his career looks to have taken somewhat of a nosedive. He went off injured within 5 minutes of scoring so no idea if we will see him again

Aldershot (hopefully)
Great to see Miller scoring again. But then he was probably central striker, not stuck on the left wing , Searle’s cunning plan at Aldershot. Hope he does well for you.

I remember we paid something like 50k for him a couple of years ago. After 5 mins of coming on we all realised he would never be a football league player.

Was he related to George Weah?

Old enough to realise pre season games mean nothing,but York have just beaten Newcastle first team 1-0.
Only player who didn’t play was John Jo Shelvey,from full squad.
Didn’t think I would say it but like the new ground,excellent view point from East Stand.

York have been one of the unluckiest teams during the pandemic. Misisng out on promotion in 19/20 on PPG and then assembling a good squad last year only to see it curtailed early doors. Factoring in the new stadium, fans not being able to get fully into it or say goodbye to Bootham Crescent.

Hopefully a good season awaits you guys, would like to see you back in the NL.

He's done well considering he's currently got his foot in a cast lol. It was Virgil Gomis, never played for us either.

They are completely wrong with who they thought it was. Embarrasing
What’s embarrassing? It was a Barnet fan who said it was Mensah if you read up..

I don’t really care who it was unless we sign them, but from what I heard none of the 3 trialists we had on show were worth a contract. 2 of those being right sided centre backs which suggests JR still wants one of those. Would make sense considering 4 of our 5 CB’s are left footed… pretty much unheard of that

Behave, his name is all over your forum and the Chesterfield poster said a trialist from Gloucester before the Barnet fan said anything.

He was with us, but a couple of years older, lower division and a bit of confidence he might be ok. He certainly had pace to burn.
He's absolutely brilliant in FM2020, he's always in my NLN team when I start a new game, scores at least 30 in the first season when I play a gung-ho 4-3-3 with 2 wing backs.

Maybe, although his subsequent loan spells at Macclesfield and Grimsby don’t appear to have gone very well either.
