Looks like we've missed out on a swoop for this goalscorer:

Nice one Barry,
As good as he was, Iím afraid  he has has his day at our level.

I'm sure this would have been nothing more than tongue-in-cheek of course. It's been great to have Jordan around so we don't quite miss Damian as much as we might have done.

Which got me thinking - like Willo last year, are there any other former players we'd actually want back at this stage?

If he was available I don't think I'd be too averse to having Leather back...

I'd agree Leather, also a fit Kevin Ellison would be great

Often these routes are actually designed to create funds for the football club by putting on courses which attract DFE funding.  In many cases the young people do not have much chance of reaching first team football and end up with a related BTEC.  I was approached by a couple of non league clubs to do the same but i didnt think this was ethical.  Not all are like that though, but there are some clubs making a mint out of raising the dreams of young people

It will be strange, a lot of prep which could be just for 1 game.  Will this mean that we are unable to firm up our squad until after they are completed in case we are playing in the National?

I think given we havent had a retained list or heard of any signings that its all very much still in the air.

Wow. I have no recolection of Boston being a league club. It must have been a bad time for the fans

Many young people in Wrexham have no idea they were a league club  Grin Grin
Longest standing members of the national league

Got to assume Densmore

Who is on contract for next season?  Who has confirmed they are staying?  I assume this work can now start , unfair that other clubs have been getting on with this whilst we had to wait

In times like these, that is most welcome

Yes it would, could be a convenient move on behalf of the FL to solve their relegation concerns

The issue was discussed by the Burton chairman on five live.  Its clear the football league are concerned that many in the national league will go bust and if so they do not want to relegate a club to a situation that they dont have a league to play in.  I think they require confirmation from the national league that it will continue, also stating that if it went regional many wouldnt support relegation bringing us back to the bad old days

One up no relegation based on ppg I think

I think they'll start next season in league 2, doubt they'll finish though, regardless of being saved here financially they appear doomed

Director of football - I assume more the scouting network support for the manager type
