Defender signs on loan
Friday 5th March

The club has announced the signing of defender (right back) Jak Hickman on a season-long loan from SkyBet League Two side Bolton Wanderers.
The 22-year-old progressed through the youth system of Coventry City and had loan spells with Mickleover Sports, Ashton United, Redditch United, Hereford, and Bromsgrove Sporting before joining Bolton in August 2020 on a free transfer.
He made his debut for Bolton in the Football League Trophy against Crewe and went on to make a total of seven appearances (all competitions) his last seeing him score against Newcastle U21 in November.
He was not registered on Bolton's EFL squad list at the end of the January transfer window.
If Judas took 30 pieces of silver, would he donate it to a football club?

Sounds like he was almost a free agent, so maybe he is prepared to pay  for very little or the loan is for a small sum to put himself in the shop window.

Otherwise it's ridiculous....   I am expecting us to pick up players for free if we are furloughing......... there's the whole Wimbledon Academy to pick from for starters

Are you allowed to furlough employees, only to take on someone else on to fill that role?   :dontknow:

Surely he has to be playing for free. If not, using tax payers money to furlough other players would appear to be pointless, from a financial perspective.

Haven't Chesterfield furloughed players not in managers plans and brought in several players since?

No idea.

Apparently it's permitted to furlough employees and then bring others in to do their jobs.

Personally think its crazy. If the job is still there, then surely it should be for the existing employee to remain in it.  :dontknow:

After all, the whole furlough scheme is about enabling people to keep their jobs by enabling employers to be able to keep the job open for the furloughed employee.

Surely it is called playing the system ?

I seem to recall Stephen Cleeve ( on a Podcast) saying, words to the effect, there was a plethora of League players. Available out there at £400 a week ( a week = 2 games these
Days).

I kinda like KESís theory.   Players prepared to put themselves out there on the cheap in attempt to gain a contract for next season.

How many players did Chesterfield  hVe on their books before furloughing some, Paul.  I guess a club of their stature are a little removed from where we are at.

B&G, without getting into the 'moral' aspect of furlough, the scheme isn't really designed for sport where most employees are on short term contacts with no guarantee or even expectation that they will be offered a contract for next season.

Personally I think the club is doing the right thing for our circumstances - reduce the wage bill of current players as much as possible (through the furlough scheme) and bring in loanees such as the lad from Bolton who is able to use us as a shop window to maybe stay as a full-time footballer next year, Coventry let him go on a free and seems he isn't in Bolton's plans and contract up at the end of the season, so chance to impress someone in the NL?  I would like to see a few more loanees coming in from more local clubs which might make training a bit more practical in terms of non-wage expenses but again I guess it would depend on who is picking up the tab and also would be a chance to forge some longer term links.

The one concern for furloughing 12 players is what impact it will have on the Group?  Or in particular the ones IC would like to keep on for next season.  IC has long beaten the drum about the tightness of the dressing room.  Will this situation destroy that ?
