Stowmarket Town 'promoted' and now in Step 4
at 15:27 18 May 2021

Good to see after their last 2 campaigns.

Now in same league as Sudbury, Bury Town and Felixstowe & Walton so some decent derbies there

All the Suffolk teams in Step 3 (Lowestoft, Leiston and Needham) stay in Southern Central League which is a pain as so much travelling to Midlands based teams

So much of this is down to Hurst's disaster of a window....
at 10:07 13 May 2021

All our middle aged players - i.e. those 25-30 - who are expected to be in their prime have let us done badly.

Leaving us relying on a combination of the old guard and youngsters coming through

Hanging those at the end of their careers and beginning of their careers out to dry

And this is where we now are, where we are getting rid of good players that we have produced, who have never been in a functioning team because of poor management from the last 2 managers.

Cook now walking a tight rope, so much pressure on this summer and realistically playing such a high stakes game

Hopefully he can get it right, because I can't stomach much more time at this level - especially if there isn't even some home grown players to get behind!

Be interested to see how squad looks at start of next season....
at 20:50 10 May 2021

....feel as though we've retained a few players with intention of still shifting them and that feels a risky strategy with so many players out of contract in this close season if we are anticipating even picking up nominal fees for some.

Squad is still quite bloated already, and if Cook wants to bring in 10 players or so we need to start shifting some players - feels as though that is not an easy task

I make it the below as genuine first teamers:

GK
Holy
Cornell

RB
Vincent Young
Donacien

LB
Kenlock

CB
Woolfenden
Nsiala
Ndaba

CMs
Nolan
Downes
Dozzell
McGavin

AMs
(Edwards)
Lankester
Bishop
El Mizouni
Dobra

FWs
Jackson
Norwood
Drinan
Hawkins

But 21 players who you would say are not going to be in U23s next year, before you consider those who may break through from below there as well i.e. Baggott, Gibbs, Simpson

Could easily lose (or could have done before today in some cases!) a keeper, Donacien, Drinan, Hawkins, Jackson, McGavin, Edwards and not be much worse off.

I hope we don't go into next season with 30 players in the first team squad

Helping people out.....
at 08:25 10 May 2021

.....have had someone bugging us for a job, labourer, only young with 3 young kids, desperate, will do anything, get anywhere, bla bla bla.

Lives in Woodbridge, and doesn't have his own transport which is a massive pain.....said he can get anywhere, train bus etc.

For job we could help him with this week, with view to long term it was worked out easier to get the train in, £7 a day return from Woodbridge to Westerfield.....£27 for a week pass.....had been asking for a sub so tried to help out and transferred him the money for a ticket......

Was he there this morning? Can we get hold of him now? Of course not.

£27 is quite a cheap way to find out a potential employee is not going to be able to be relied upon - but pestering for a job for months, back and forth all weekend to then take that money and run.....a lucky escape I guess.

.....massive profile, a very different audience, as a global superstar

I really like him too, thought his concerts in Chantry Park were brilliant for the town and like his music - a great coup by the club to get it done.

.....both cover a lot of the same areas but both well worth a listen and add bits the other misses.

String support for Cook, and real pressure to go up next season - sounds a really good guy and a proper football person which helps, but also realistic and happy to give the power to Ashton to run things.
