SG, knowing Ben Kaye was departing would have definitely given it some thought and made plans accordingly.
Does anyone know if we are signing an establish hooker and If no one comes in, apart from Brandon who else do we have that would play there?
Bob Beswick back ?

Keyes would be a welcome addition but don't think we have the resources to fund that.We tried to sign a Bradford player last week who turned us down to move to Doncaster for more money....that's the reality of where we are.


To put in to perspective, it is no surprise that Doncaster would offer more money than we did for what would likely be at very best a 3rd or 4th choice winger. I doubt we offered very much at all. Keyes on the other hand Im sure we would make a suitable offer based on his relative squad position. Like a lot of teams in for Bradford players we are still playing the wiaitng game for them to break players contracts.

Hope you're right all round,I do hope though that any player we sign is deemed better than what we currently have....

Winger Josh Rickett(think he scored 4 against us in a reserve match back end of last season) lives local too and we've tried to sign him before.
Doncaster must have a bob or too(Rangi Chase won't have been cheap).Maybe Bentleyman is helping them out from his meaty pension.....


No Record of him playing for Donny in there Season stats unfortunately I would not be able to help them from my Service Pension for 22 loyal years maybe if I had been a highly paid accountant :roll:

It reads like you guys are playing fantasy league. Gotta cut your cloth. According to the material you have to work with.
Missing out on a big payday with the cup run, everyone expected much more than was actually paid out. Finishing outside top 5 meant even less.
Everyone has an opinion and is entitled to give it, I am sure S G would have liked more too in the piggy bank.. Give them a chance, last years squad were world beaters before a ball was played.



What extra money has the club missed out on by not making the top 5. Possibly one home game, but unless things have changed every team now receives the same funding under the new system. So not really lost any money.

Interesting Fax Twitter comment on Keegan Hirst and Fax2020 which says Keagan is one of our 5 signings. SO FAR.
If i’m reading this right the “SO FAR” may indicate further addition / additions to come?

Various noises from the club suggest more incomings and there has to be.
Centre/Half back and hooker are still minimum requirements.

I thought that although the big differential between top4/5 and the rest had been done away with, there was still an incremental drop for each position (I have a figure of £15k in my head but might be wrong). Plus the potential shared-gate proceeds for any play-off games.
