I'm sure at Hyde one of the subs was a young keeper so, we only had two outfield players on the bench. Considering the way we are down to the bare bones of the senior squad we are doing remarkably well. We certainly could have had a draw there and there wouldn't gave been too many complaints. Jordan Cobley had the last ten minutes and looked bright maybe he could step up in attack.
Yes, it's Jake Eastwood who is the Development Squad Goalkeeper and he has played a couple of cup games for the first team. If I remember correctly he saved a penalty on his debut in the Integro League Challenge Cup.
I understand budget is tight but as others have said, "do we have no 18-19 year olds at the club or via the management teams contacts, to have a full bench or lads around the local area to look at in training and go on the bench?" Let's hope next season we have less big contract players and a larger squad to use. At our level 2-3 on contract is enough eg: young/good players that might move on? To have a squad of maybe only 16-17 is always going to cause issues over the season. UTA
As my mate said (no names mentioned LOL). If I had played up front all season to date I would only be just 2 goals behind our second best striker!!! It's just not good enough as stated. We need a striker and have done all season UTA
