Strangely enough, Greenock Morton at home in a friendly was one of the first matches I went to when I started following Alty regularly, and somehow that game played a part in getting me hooked all those years ago!

I suppose with the money from Hulme's transfer, I was expecting someone with a more proven track record. I hope we havent signed another Bowler, Rankine or Gillespie.

Feel we still need to improve central midfield and possibly a central defender.

We got three players after John Johnston left, and management did say they wouldn't panic buy. I dare say there'll be more to come when the time is right.

Justin Bowler made 1 (+8) appearances and scored 0 goals. Gillespie played 22 league games and scored once. Rankine, on the other hand, scored 15 goals in all competitions in his one season with us. I don't think he's nearly in the same category. And if Adarabioyo matches his record I think everyone would be impressed.

Didn't Rankine end up at Barrow? He wasn't a bad player if he's the man I'm thinking of.

Like I say, Fisayo deserves a chance, and I expect further reinforcements (if the financial situation doesn't get too desperate).

He was decent, but apparently a disruptive influence.

Bowler was awful, but wasn't he a winger?

Allegedly. What I saw of him didn't point to any sort of footballer at all. One of the first names on the team sheet for my all-time worst Alty XI.

No matter what position he played he would have been bobbins.
