New players / trialists / rumours 1

Post by Sheffield Harrier » Mon May 23, 2022 12:59 pm

Feel free to merge with the retained thread Phil but thought we could start a new post for news of possible signings, trialists and unfounded rumours.

First up - we are going to sign Jack Holmes from Halesowen.

Cant find much info on him other than being a forward.

Halesowen have him down as a midfielder..... A few quotes from their website from old articles -

Manager Paul Smith had this to say about his latest signing, ''Jack is the best young prospect I have ever worked with. I rate him that highly. I'm delighted he has decided to continue his development with us.''

’Jack is a little diamond,’’ Paul Smith stated, ‘’if covid hadn’t hit us, I honestly think he would be back in full time football by now. I’m delighted he has signed a deal for another year. A very very exciting prospect, another young, hungry and talented footballer that has committed to the club.

The above were prior to the 21-22 season.

I like that rumour. I’ve kept my eye on Jack this season. Still very raw, but there’s a cracking little player there

Is the general feeling that we'll have an increased budget next season. I know we didnt come out of the cup run with the revenue we all expected, but with the average attendance being well over 1000 more than expected for the whole season you'd think that would of boosted the coffers somewhat?

Decent enough first signing, left sider with pace and physicality.
If he wants to be more than a impact player off the bench lets hope Russ and the lads work on his finishing, which is the principal reason he's still in the NLN.

Happy with that. Terrorised us at Aggborough. Hopefully the move to FT will benefit him
