Seen lot’s of ‘sign a Striker’ in Jan comments, rightfully so I’ll add, but doffing my serious cap for a minute, just who would we go for or even appeal to?!
Any half decent one available will have more than ourselves as suitors, and any rivals for a signature will have one of location advantage, wage offer and League position in their favour if not two or more likely all three?
The only way we’re signing a proven marksman is offering serious coin, something that’s we all know is unlikely.
So what is the answer?
The vast majority of U23 level lads are simply not ready for the hustle and bustle of lower L2. Young a fine example without berating him. Simply too raw.
Non-League? Big risk with these types obviously, but rough and tumble wouldn’t bother most. Also plenty of National League can offer good wages etc. Scott came in, but was plainly obvious Beech didn’t fancy him.
Look further? Scotland, Ireland, Europe?! The further afield, the bigger the risk also. For every Tommy Murray there’s a Richard Offiong!
Whoever we bring in, really could be the transfer to make or break our League Status. Hopefully they have broad shoulders…
