...signs for Fylde, after his release by Port Vale last week:

I can't imagine we were fighting them for his signature.

...followed promptly by Tom Walker.

Would have liked to see a bit more of him whilst he was here.

No doubt both will be fantastic additions at NLN level.

Good luck to them both but neither would have improved us.

I don't know whether we saw enough of him to be sure but I don't think he's an upgrade on what we've already got in that part of the pitch.
People we need are elsewhere in the side.

Walker has more pedigree at this level compared to our other options in his position; maybe he's a bit of a Greg Wilkinson-style luxury player as he doesn't ever seem to cement a regular place for whatever team he plays for. As previously suggested, Fylde will probably be a great move for him.
