Foster & Brown are back
Ian Foster rejoined the club yet again today after being released by Chester City at the end of last month and then turning up for training at Brown Westhead within a matter of minutes.
Who would have thought that following his sending off against Huddersfield at the end of last season, when he was here on loan, that he would have been allowed to return to Aggborough.
It was always believed that if any player upset Jan Molby he would be out on his arris quicker than something extremely quick. So it was with Foster. No sooner had the game ended than it was announced that Ians' loan had been cancelled and he was to return to the Deva immediately.
Jan must have a soft heart after all.
It's un-believable the amount of chances Fozzie has been given to prove himself in the League and he never really has. This could be his last chance. Or is it?
Also back with us, but only for an initial one month loan, is Simon Brown. He came to us from the Albion at the end of the season for match practice and he ended up being the find of the season. Scoring 2 goals in 8 games he was a bit of a revelation but this still wasn't enough for Albion boss Gary Megson to chance his arm and give him a place in the first team.
This loan spell could well be extended but the problem will be if he catches the eye again it may be the eyes of other clubs. Jan needs to get this one month made into six, and soon.
Two other players who have been on trial with the club for the past couple of weeks also signed today. Simon Russell, ex Hull City, and Jamie Gleeson, once of the parish of St Marys, Southampton, have joined the club on two year deals.
Jan has still to decide about the future of Rob O-Brien and Youssou Diop buut has told Rory Higgins, Adam Flynn, Jimmy Turner and Freddie Advice that their services will not be required.
