    No doubting Rachael's skill and injuries like Kerry's are off the scale bad luck but other players are really struggling. Ellis is hit and miss and we can't run a team around getting 60 mins out of folk. Really got to start nailing some results and no better place to start than Salford on our pitch

    Let's hope so. At the moment our form is probably the worst in our league apart from Alty. Any chance of Reevesie becoming available?

    Is Danny Holland still playing?! Never really replaced him apart from Glenn Naylor and, my hero, Graeme Armstrong. Maybe we could get Walshaw back...only joking, honest.

    Injuries seem to have been a problem for some time.

    Makes me wonder whether we do something different in training.

    Fair point Htafc, like I said earlier, don't see Rowe out for weeks at a time.

    I suspect the extra training and/or the pitch may be a factor in all the injuries. Obviously there will always be some injuries such as Kerry's that can't be prevented and/or are accidental.

    Most of our injuries have been picked up away from home.

    Food for thought for next season. Never an exact science but we need to look at how we can minimise the disruption thats caused. Ellis being a case in point! How did the new goalkeeper do?

    I never see Danny's name mentioned in the reports about Matlock these days so guess he's finished - unless anyone knows better? What a great player for Town. Armstrong now plays for The Moors and is knocking them in regularly. I saw him a couple of weeks ago vs Workington and he hit a superb curled shot from about 15 yards into the top corner of the net. If you're interested, Brayson has registered about 39 goals so far for Newcastle Benfield including six goals in a recent 11 - 1 victory. Wayne Phillips is also still playing for North Shields.

    Still think we could do worse than get Armstrong in, just on a short term contract. Put 7 days in, doubt he is under contract. Its really worth a punt. Pass it on Ged!

    I fully agree with you Paul and it's great to think about this as a possibility but I'm fairly sure he would want to stay with The Moors and see the job through and get them promoted (again).

    Holland plays for Shaw Lane (Ego Stick South). Purkiss and Gascoigne have gone there.
    Armstrong will definately be on a contract at Spennymoor, who are not short of money.
