Was a midfielder for us, not a striker. 3 game career:
Late substitute in the usual 2-0 defeat at Gillingham.
Started the following game against Port Vale; did well in a 2-1 win.
Was anonymous in the next game (0-1 v Bury in the Cup) - anonymous on that day meant being one of the less-blameworthy!

Then fell out with Keith Hill and was frozen out.

Not big or fast enough to play up front, but quite useful/skilful/aware in midfield.

Good luck to him.

How's Ben Tollitt done for Wrexham this season? Any more youtube videos we should look out for?

We've just (somehow) signed him on a free.
Shit, unfortunately, although probably not helped that he never had a good run in the team. bit too lightweight for Non League though

will probably now have a worldy 2nd half of the season with you and score the winning goal on the last day to keep you in the league

We have just announced the signing of Salford centre back Liam Hogan on a 2.5 year deal!

Very very happy with this one, a serial promotion winner!
Getting quite a few ex-Salford in these days. They've had lots of ex-County in their squad too. It's the kind of incestuous relationship that'd get Burnley fans rock hard

Stockport County.
Chesterfield won it two years ago.
Settle a debate on our forum- Barrow: Lancashire or Cumbria? I'd have always said it was in Cumbria but they reckon you lot see yourself as Lancastrians. Much like Stockport is technically Greater Manchester but we all see ourselves as being in Cheshire.

It's an age thing and is debated here as well. My birth certificate will say Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria so I just know it as that, despite the LA postcode. Older folks will say otherwise.

The same old twats that shout "get it forward" whenever we take more than two passes to get over the half-way line.

mine says Barrow-in-Furness, Lancashire - none of this Cumbria crap - apart from when we beat Carlisle...
Footballing wise though we still play in the Lancashire Senior Cup - not the Cumbria/Cumberland one...
Once they've got Brexit out of the way they should go back to the old county boundaries....

I see you have signed Lois Maynard as well.

They should be two solid players for you, particularly Maynard. He played virtually every game in midfield for us when we finished second in 2016-17 before losing his place to Ollie Norburn, who was much better. However, I think he played at the back for Salford ?

Had the raw talent to play League One football, which is why Blackpool took a punt on him.

However, his career has been ruined by serious injuries and loss of confidence and he is now at the stage where he has to turn out for Macclesfield to (fail) to get paid.

Finally managed to get rid of Chris holroyd, contract cancelled by mutual agreement, he has signed for Stalybridge Celtic, hope it's not too rough for him there. Useless.

I have an irrational hatred of Chris Holroyd from his days at Macc - their stadium announcer (the worst I've heard) used to screech "HE'S FROM MACCLESFIELD, HE PLAYS FOR MACCLESFIELD, HE'S SCORED FOR MACCLESFIELD....IT'S CHRIIIIIIS HOLROYD!" every time he scored. Which was usually two or three times a match against us, I'm sure. Prick.

He is weak as water. He was good for us in his first season. Useless in the second.

He's at least ten times the player Massanka is or ever will be. Do you still have him?

No we got shut of Massanka immediately after the games against Wrexham, he was an absolute joke, just glad we have got shut of Holroyd as well, not that it matters, we are down anyway.
