Think he's another winger or number ren. A very good signing for us though.
Perhaps a number nine is on the list too?

Given heís taken a pay cut to come I assume heís on a longer term deal. So thatís him, hanks, Mooney,  Colclough, Kosylo and ceesay competing for 3 places. Seems quite a lot to me and all on long terms deals. I know several of them have injury records but if they all stay fit as we hope they would, at least 5 of them are going to expect to be playing almost every week. Ceesay had better get practicing as a no9 cos itís the only way heíll get game time against that lot

Depending on his court case, I would imagine Colclough is a very saleable asset.

True. Or he may be unavailable for a while

Decent player - if he's fit and stays that way. I just wish that we'd occasionally sign a player who's not spent significant time on the treatment table over 2-3 seasons.

I don't think he has struggled so much the last couple of seasons, although I know what you mean. I saw AFC Telford United play Curzon Ashton on their stream last month, when James Hardy played, although I can't remember much from his performance. The Telford player who did impress me then was Jason Oswell, the big centre-forward. Having played for Crewe Alexandra and Nantwich Town, he seems to have all the appropriate links!

Welcome to the club to James Hardy, though.

Oswell would be the perfect signing.

In the style of the brilliant "Laurels for Hardy" headline on the above transfer, if this one comes off may i suggest "Oswell that ends well"

I know we've injuries but Hancock, Mooney, Cisse, Colclough, Kosyolo and Hardy give us great creativity.

What we're lacking is that pivot to bring them into the game (like Hulme), and I hope we still sign a CF from the Conference North.
