Great signing. They don't all have to be marquee ones. Slots in the squad instantly, small outlay, experienced.

About bleeding time, hope he's the first of 3/4 through the door in the next few weeks.

Welcome to TM Dale.

Caps off a successful week, now for 3 points against the saints to really round a great few days off. :)

Good addition.

Does this eventually mean Brownhill back out on the right?

Excellent signing, played around the lower leagues initially and has a well-grounded, experienced career. Mainstay at Brighton recently and we now hope he transfers his skills and ability back to his native north west.

The number 16 is a big shirt to fill CT ...

So lets hope he's not as injury prone as the last holder of that squad number πŸ™‚

Nothing to get excited about. Will be fourth choice behind Westwood , Brownhill and Cork. Does this mean Benson will be back out on loan?

I feel this could be a very astute signing.
I like the fact he has played in the lower divisions - for me, this shows grit and determination.

Depending on how far off cork is I think we need to be looking at getting Benson in a good a championship team on loan.
