Just been having a good look around Twitter at retained lists and the like, when I noticed this.

His agent has tweeted this morning that he’s joining a L2 Club today, quoting a well known NE Football Journalist.

The player now follows CUFC on his Twitter.

Said journo has since tweeted this:

The player was voted ‘Best Young Player’ in the National League at the National Game Awards yesterday:

Sounds like potentially a very good signing- Peterborough were sniffing.

Agreed. He’s an England ‘C’ International, which is basically the best of the National League.

Could be a little bit of a coup if it’s correct...

Sounds good
One year deal eh?
Presumably this is one of those scenarios where the likelihood of playing regularly and not being tied in to a longer deal is more appealing than more money and less game time.

Hopefully he’s better than the last promising young player we signed from Gateshead.

Given his age, I wonder if we’ll have to pay some compo to Gateshead.

With Gateshead having all kind of problems its no surprise the lad took a chance elsewhere.
Shouldnt be too much of a step up for him if he has played at the C level internationally..Could well be a solid signing.

At least we are signing players early which is a nice change to see. (Keeps me from twining)

Remember the Hartlepool fans saying they hoped they were in for him. Sounds a good signing. Assuming the out of contracts sign we have

GK Grey Collin
LB Iredale Gillesphey
CB Parkes, Mellish Gillesphey
RB Elliott
WB/LM Hope Iredale
CM Etuhu, Jones, Devitt, Scougall
WB/RM Scougall, McCarron Elliott
AM Devitt
ST Hope

I wonder if he'll play the 2 Scottish boys as wing backs, and we'll have 3 central defenders? Could see another CB coming in yet

My biggest concern is that last season we struggled for leaders and players that could motivate the rest of the team.

They would look around at each other forlorn holding their hands up at times after conceding a goal.

All very good signing young lads and I know that we don't know their temperament as yet but I fear that losing Gerrard, Liddle and Grainger then where is the solid old pro with leadership skills as we only really have Collin and Parkes now.

Problem is that these sort of players are at the end of their careers and are older and slow (Hill, Gerrard) and because they have the pedigree then they cost lots more in wages.

You can't penny pinch to the point of filling the team with kids and the likes or we will get humped every week and if that is the case then Pressley should just bugger off and find himself an under 21 academy job at some club if he sees his future in only developing young talent.

Are other L1 clubs only offering one year deals like us?

I love the way that Pressley and Holdsworth phrase things like we are looking for 'hungry' players wanting an opportunity - more like their clubs are on their arses so they are quite literally starving because they might not have been getting paid, the word 'desperate' is more applicable so these poor sods will probably have been happy with a three month deal.

Hardly like we have just signed Nicky Maynard.

Oh give over Munchy, any player is a gamble no matter what.
If we did sign Maynard on a three year deal then in pre season he had an injury similar to JKs then we would be left having to pay him whopping wages.
Lets just see what happens eh, at least give the poor bloke a chance.

I give all players a chance Bry.

Don't mind signing squad players all day long but we need some marque signing with a bit of quality too.

We’re in league 2. There’s no marquee signings.

We won’t be signing Griezmann unfortunately.

Well its still early doors yet! we're only in the middle of May, so those 'Marquee signings' as you call them might happen yet, we'll start with Devitt, Nadessan and Yates please.

We are very obviously in need of a couple of big signings in the striking/attacking department.
I don't think any of us are daft enough to expect a world beater.
We seem to have a freed up enough of the wage bill to allow us to do this
The vast majority of Curle's team has gone now and I doubt some of the loanees we had last year were cheap
Promising signs with transfers so far, but much more to come I would think
