I watched highlights today of the top of the table clash in Northern Ireland between Larne and Linfield. Larne’s captain Jeff Hughes controlled the game as the league leaders won 3-1
Yes, he's a class act. A bit slower now, but at that level he can probably still do it. His skill and versatility were so useful to us, never more so than in the Boreham Wood game at Wembley.

Also a really nice guy and a great example off the pitch. He also played a key role in reorganising us at Wembley when we went down to ten men, as described in the 'Against all the Odds' documentary.

I’ve not seen the documentary dvd. Worth a watch I’m guessing RLC?

I assume it is our Ben Tollit who scored three for Fylde today? A player who did not go as far as he might have done

yep Ben has been doing well. Scoring fairly regularly and more importantly staying fit and playing every week. Only 26 so still has time to hopefully make it into the football league

god no please. One thing we don’t need need is another attacking midfielder.

maybe he’ll end up back at Oldham or somewhere in the national league or even Warrington town!
