We have had a £10,000 bid for a striker currently with a Ryman Premier League side turned down today.

If it wasn't Freddy Eastwood at Grays perhaps we could try for him?

A lot of money 10k on a player. May be a blessing in disguise that it was rejected as he might be rubbish!! We dont get 10k to spend every day so we really need to make sure we spend it correctly. Was it a Purfleet striker Dave?!

Dont think thats likely - the club dont generally release info, if something doesnt actually come off - and does it really matter, anyway ?? Lets just get on with trying to find someone else to spend money on.

don't think we should be spending money until we have secured ourselves as a regular conference team,we don't need constant new players to come in and try to gel with our existing ones,give our boys a chance.

.....seeing as we didn't get him then it doesn't really matter.

However, just for the record - who was it? lol

Particularly for those out of the area, heres a quote from the Reporter this week :-

"I am still interested in a couple of strikers. However, there are only 12 weeks left of the season and I dont want to pay out five figure sums for a player who is out of contract at the end of the season".(On that basis, the player we bid for must have a long term contract at their current club)

Andy also comments that he is looking for one other player to go out on loan.

Wilkerson is quoted as being 50/50 as he has a special splint and cannot quite take a full blast shot at the moment, so Exter might be a bit soon.

Fleet boy says That guy WAS a legend. As far as I am concerned he IS a legend I believe his name was Justin Griffiths and can I say when we saw him in the car park after the game and offered him a can of lager he took the good natured ribbing very graciously but I was extremely pissed so my vision may have been clouded

The reason for starting this thread was to show that things are not standing still, but that it isn't just a case of picking a player and putting in a bid.
