Defender Matthew Joseph, who was recently on loan at Histon, has been released by the Club.


Didn't seem like a bad player at times, couldn't see him getting into the first team though.

All the best for the future, Matthew.

Think he struggled with the wing-back role, he was right back at Leyton i believe.

GOOD LUCK MATT!

This illustrates our problems this season. We've taken too many players on then released them. It's got to be unsettling for the squad.

Agree, I think he struggled with the role he was given. He did run up the line but was often challenged and lost the ball giving him a lot of ground to make up etc. But generally I don't think he was to bad a player.

We seem to have had a few options for right back including Smithy, Wardy and Mcgee - could this be a problem position if a wing back is required? A couple of players who have been asked to cover that area are not really wing back material but are better at a straight defensive role.

Sterling seems to have settled on the left and IMO done well throughout the season - he does make runs but doesn't always look comfortable when nearing the halfway line. Someone mentioned Duffers being under rated as a defensive wing back. Stronger at running from defence, but not as skilled in a straight defensive role as Sterling. What you gain with one player you seem to lose on another.

Best of luck Matt.

Matt Joseph seemed a decent player but was too lightweight to really do the wingback role. In a 4-4-2 he could have been quite useful but never really shone when played as a wingback.

His one decent game was away to Exeter.
