The football brains trust at Vale Park 100% see him as in serious competition for a start in September and as a player who will make a big impact at this level. He was watched quite extensively as it became known Salford would have to offload him in February and he's seen as a real X factor player. We were certainly not the only club that wanted him as he attracted a lot of interest for his performances at Halifax and there is genuine excitement from the coaching staff that he chose us and they will be able to work with him. There is a real feeling he has all the attributes to be something special in our system. I'd put money on he gets more time on the pitch than Pope in the first game of the season.

Ok, this paragraph has me excited.

Planning months in advance for a player. Knowing about other club's finances and decisions they will have to take. Proper scouting.

It's not just open the PFA's 'released players' list on June 1st and call everyone, seeing who fancies a run out.

The vast majority of the time, I tend to read social media following on from the arrival of a mew signing,  and I’m absolutely baffled at the negativity that gets thrown around given the fact 99% of V

Also we have a manager in Askey, that against the odds got us pushing for promotion.  Had it not been for the virus and the benevolence of our superb owners, we may well have been putting a league one

I would imagine it's a lot easier to scout properly when your only looking for 5 or 6 players instead of the usual 12

Helps when you know you will still have a job next season if you are a manager as well.
