January transfer window

Recommended Posts

Is there a list of contract lengths available anywhere?

Phil Sherwin reckons Pope, Brown and Bennett of the current starting squad are contracted beyond this season.

I believe Manny is too.

I thought Pope signed this time last year, so assumed it was until the end of this season.

Can anyone enlighten me on this?

Manny definitely has because Max did that video spoof of when he signed. Next season is his last under contract. Bennett was signed on a two year deal so again has a year left.

Definitely out of contract are Amoo, Legge and Worrall . 

Also think the likes of Rhys Browne, Burgess,Cullen and Lloyd were only one year deals. Could be another interesting summer.

Pope has another season as will Manny

So Pope signed a 2.5 year contract at the age of 33?

Wow!

Ah! Two year, so December 2020?

no it was an extension to his current one, so you were correct. He has all of next season as well.

Finishes 2021 when i'd imagine at a few months shy of 36 it could be a swan song ?

No. Transfermarket.com has one but it says Pope's contract ends this summer so that isn't very reliable. From checking each individual player's Wikipedia's I get this:

2020: Jordan Archer, Kieran Kennedy, Jonny Maddison, Shaun Brisley, Daniel Trickett-Smith, Ryan Lloyd, Scott Burgess, David Amoo, Callum Evans, Nathan Smith, Scott Brown, James Gibbons, Luke Joyce, Leon Legge, Cristian Montano, Will Atkinson, Mark Cullen
2021: Alex Hurst, Ryan Campbell-Gordon, Richie Bennett, Adam Crookes, Manny Oyeleke, Tom Pope
Unspecified: Rhys Browne, David Worrall, Tom Conlon
Loan: Jake Taylor

So unless players have signed deals on the quiet or they have secret extension clauses like Aspin used to put in them then that's what we're looking at.

A quick Google shows Browne deal runs out in the summer but Worrall and Conlon contract lengths were simply unreported for some reason

We really need to get some of the better players(Smith, Gibbons, LLoyd etc ) signed up. 

I would give Smith and Gibbons 3 year deals, build for the future. I'm guessing Lloyd was a typo? 😄

Worrall is 100% up as he has been on video on the website being interviewed saying he wants to stay.

Lloyd is going to Leek Town on loan until the end of the season to allow a decent player to come in.

Both Worrall and Conlon must have had extension deals depending on appearances included in their deals.

Possibly until end of this season.

Thanks, that's excellent!

I think Scott Brown has extended?

Next steps have to be extending several others, as mentioned above.

JA is going to have to go deeper into his contacts list to replace those squad players recruited last summer.

The biggest challenge is recruiting for replacements for the spine of the team.

Most have another season, but we really need our experienced players to be mid 20s.

Plenty to be done to get to where we hope to be, so I'm beginning to think that talk of a promotion bid next season is perhaps a little premature.

Brown definitely signed an extension till 2021 in the summer.

Great post, cheers. I think Browne has a one year deal

Get Burgess, Amoo, Smith, Gibbo, Joyce, Legge, Worrall and Monty signed up as a matter of urgency imo. Burgess, Smith, Gibbo, Worrall 2 years, rest on one. See if Browne can start delivering on his obvious talent and maybe give him another year. Atko wouldn't be a bad shout either. All of these are, at minimum, competent at our level.

If clubs come in with bids in the 6 figures for Smith and Gibbons, then fair enough, we wish them well and re-invest.

Add in Manny, Hurst, Crooks, RCG, Pope, Bennett, Conlin, and Brown (extended to next year I believe), then that leaves us with about 17 players going into next season, with decent starting options and bench options, leaving us with room for about 6 signings which simply have to be better quality than last year. I assume one or two will be given deals from the youth side, in addition.

Its always a gamble, but 4/6 signings have to stick the landing and materially improve the squad, notably in the forward department and the creativity in the middle to shift the load off a hopefully recovered Manny.

Either way, that's not a bad position to be in. We have the experience, we have the youth, its simply nailing the scouting between now and May to ensure we hit the ground running with 6 good League 2 players, at the right age, with a club in a far more sustainable financial position to achieve this. With a number of scouts and a bit of wiggle room financially, and lots of prep time, Askey has no excuse.

What a nice prospect of a stable manager and stable owners with clearly defined targets for a window, instead of overhauling the entire squad and texting the agents you know.

Is Hurst at the vale these days? Or did he extend his loan till end of season? 

 

Will Trickett-Smith get a game?

 

If we keep the good players we have and sign up some quality replacements for the ones who leave end of season we should have a competitive squad next season.
