This is the lad that was on loan at Carlisle and scored a hat-trick against us , looked a cut above, being released by Sheffield United this summer,

Would be a great signing

As i have said previously on here, now is the time to look for released players, to boost our squad. I note that amongst others, Watford and Southampton are keen to get their released youngsters signed up elsewhere.........an ideal chance to bolster our numbers with quality up-and-coming talent with potential ( eg. George Williams ).

Carlisle and Salford have already announced their retained lists and both clubs have released significant numbers of players who are out of contract at the end of June. I sort of agree with GETCARTER, that there is a good opportunity to pick up released players from teams above, I suspect we are now entering a phase where the clubs hold a greater degree of control over hiring players than they have for years. I don't think that is a bad thing if it cuts down on the amounts of money some clubs appear to be paying to player agents.

Given our recent record of scouting players for a significant length of time before deciding whether to offer a contract I wouldn't be at all surprised if we have a list of potential targets drawn up already.

All our players are on furlough, and we don't have any idea when or if next season will start.

The main thing will be to trim the squad as much as possible, not sign more players I would have thought. Same for most clubs. No point having players if you don't have any matches to play, or any income.

In addition to the above, and following Kentstripe's post. I would expect the club to have a list of targets ready to sign, when football is ready to recommence, not necessarily now...which would of course make little sense whatsoever given current circumstances.

We only have 8 players under contract from the end of June I think:
Smith, Godwin Malife, Kitching, Winchester, Adams, Stevens, Collins and McClosky

With uncertainty of income in terms of gate receipts it’s quite a sound place to be.

Could be a challenging time for lots of out of contract players across the leagues.

Think both Thomas and Bernard have another year left on their contracts. Got an extension during the season. March is also under contract.

I thought Mc Goalski was told he was not wanted,and was open to offers.

He won't get any for a while, hardly any clubs can afford to make any signings at this point.

Worrying time for lower league players at the moment. Can see quite a few having to leave the game altogether given the state of finances across the board.

Its not a case of McCoulsky not being wanted. The fact is he has another year on his contract. He was given a two and a half year by Cooper and I'm afraid to say this turned out to be a very poor decision. You could argue that the current situation could actually help lower league clubs by players wage demands being reduced.

Thomas would have been first on the team sheet at Carlisle, bit his form did dip when Beech took over. Maybe not Cooper's type, not known for his passing if a shot is on, which if you remember from one of his typical goals at FGR, is from almost anywhere.
