I'd assume we are his only option, especially at this level, hence why he's signed quickly

I would be staggered if "about to become a Dad" (Observing's comment above) isn't very relevent here.

Last season Koiki had an offer and I think the club thought he wouldn't take it and so signed Brough. When Koiki ended up staying, I reckon the club had more left backs than they wanted (Koiki, Brough and Haynes). We need to try to avoid scenarios like that, especially as every penny counts in our case.

I don’t see any reason why as soon as we decided to sign Brough we couldn’t have just withdrawn Kolki’s contract offer if we’d have wanted.

1 Better Word  - Hylton
Was Danny Hylton an injury risk before he signed for us?

I wonder how often it happens that a player stalls on signing a contract to wait and see if a better offer comes in. The prospective club then gets offered a player they consider an improvement on the original player and withdraws their interest?
Clarke Carlisle and David Artell. Carlisle then spent six months sulking at York, before crawling back with his tail between his legs, on what I would assume were reduced terms from his original offer.

1 Better Word  - Hylton
Hylton was known to be a potential injury risk, Harrop was already injured when we signed him. There is a difference.

I would assume that it would depend how legally binding the offer of a contract is? At least up until the'deadline'.

I don't remember the exact circumstances, but he could have had an option to renew. Wouldn't that make it his choice rather than the club's?.

Mmmmmm, was hoping for a proper new number one tbh, Burge possibly the most injury prone number one we've ever had...

Just hope we get in proper permanent competition for him, so that we are adequately covered when the inevitable happens!

Like Fox, The new contract is for an initial year with a year option

Would hope we'd have learnt from previous contracts & hope the "year option" is solely down to the club to activate...although slightly concerned they haven't clearly stated this.

I would imagine they are both options for 1 year based on appearances

Clarke Carlisle and David Artell. Carlisle then spent six months sulking at York, before crawling back with his tail between his legs, on what I would assume were reduced terms from his original offer.

Carlisle did very well for us and drew admirable compliments in a Cheltenham report on the game. The same game in which ex top fan Brian sat near to two ladies who left the vicinity due to Brian’s commendable grasp of the English language! In fact it was his performances first time here that saved us from relegation! Never forget his performance at Aldershot in a blizzard. Won us the game with a second half header. The 160 fans behind the goal went wild with Coolie leading the way! ‘Twas there as well. Went into a pub near the ground with hellish steps , full of Cobblers fans looking like a bunch of villains!

Aldershot only wanted to play so their striker completed his ban and play against Middlesboro in the FA Cup on the Saturday, they got beat 3-0.  Grin

Pleased with this, decent keeper, we need another decent number one /two to compete with Lee, definitely not another Prem kid on loan, especially in goal, Moulden still gives me nightmares.

I really hope that Burge can put his injury problems behind him and he returns to the form of 2 seasons ago when he was excellent. However, we cannot repeat last seasons mistakes of having inexperienced youths as back up.

In other transfer news Jonson Clarke Harris has signed for Evans at Rotherham and Posh have had a bid for Conn Clarke rejected by Altrincham.
