Squad may be getting a tad too large to keep every player happy.  Have to say, however, that King and Power are exactly the standard neede for the National League.

Boston supporters think they need a new Keeper and Streets name was mentioned on their forum.  :dontknow:

Dilly I can see if we end up with a 20 man squad that a few will go out on loan to help balance the books.

As for Pedro B&G. I am sure he will welcome the competition to prove he is the number one keeper at the club and is more than capable of playing at this level.  The lad coming in is young, improving and having the advantage of full time training at Colney but Peds has the experience.

Yes, the competition is healthy.....just wishful thinking from the Pilgrims faithful. Shame they didn't get up to give us a couple of local derbies, but a little bit like York, they set up not to lose and stay tight and ultimately came up short against sides playing in a more dynamic way.


Alot of Southern trips for Linnets next yr... something like 15 south and 8 north, should the league go ahead

They are 6 games in , on an 18 game summer season I believe, season ending end of October. He scored with a header from a corner in the recent 1-0 win over Derry

My money is on the lad McFadden



Well, reading the Pink 'un article, it looks as if he's the one.

Wants to be in Norfolk, Partner is from Tasburgh, and quotes that he's worked with Cully and that Lynn are flying.

Was he booked? Apparently it seems to be a fairly regular occurrence.

So, updated squad is now

GK - Mair, Street
Full backs - Jones, Burrows, Brown
Centre halves - Smith, McAuley, Fleming
Central Midfield - Clunan, Richards, Jarvis
Attacking Midfield - Henderson, Carey, Kelly, Hawkins, Power, King
Forwards - Marriott, Gash, Loza, Southwell

with potentially one more to come as the EDP quoted IC as saying he hoped to have two more signings - one on which now confirmed as King, presume the other will be Kyle Callan-McFadden as centre half still looks suspect.  Heaven only knows how this is all being paid for, also gives IC more of a challenge than he has had previously in managing a bigger squad and keeping them all happy, has anything been announced about how many subs teams will be allowed in the NL this season - might we still be on COVID regs?

In fairness Tony with the squad at 22 ( one to come in ) it does look a big squad to keep happy, on paper.

However I canít see Jarv playing every week.  The lad Fleming I can see going out on loan to get more expertise.  Clunan hasnít kicked a ball in anger for what 9 months?  So again loan deal may suit both parties.  Hawkins, not sure he will figure that much, he tends to have a loan out once or twice a year.
 

There maybe others who get put out on loan to help balance the books.

So after a lot of head scratching :
Street,
Barrow, McAuley, Smith/MacFadden, Brown,
Richards/Clunan/Jarvis, King, Henderson,
Loza, Gash, Marriott
Subs Mair, Jones, Smith/MacFadden,Richards or Clunan or Jarvis,
Southwell, Power


Which leaves Kelly, Hawkins, Carey and Fleming in reserve.

Think it's no secret that the ambitions giving who's come in that the aim will be to be pushing play offs, rather than stay up. Just staying up, the club could have went with what they had last season, but by adding some proven players at this level they're clearly not going for that.

Games will be thick and fast, twice a week against far better opposition so rotation will be needed, and there can't be too much of a drop off if they're going to push for play offs.
