Who Will Win Div 1

Recommended Posts

Stuart Reynolds is loyal to Ampthill Town yes, however i am sure he would be the first to admit he doesnt have the fitness currently to play at that level.

 

Royston offered him good money when craig hammond left but he didnt take it, i dont think he has aspirations to play higher anyway.

 

He will be at Ampthill next year i would bet money.

He's a fool then. Regardless of club loyalty which decent player would forfeit a chance of testing himself at Conference South level or Ryman Prem to stay in SSML Div.1.

Is it the big fish in small pond syndrome ? Probably not, he's probably a decent player, but as always Clifford you tag yourself along to certain names & they unfairly get caught in the crossfire.

Martin Standen dropped four levels to play for Hatfield Town a few years back . Im sure, he and anyone involved with the club during the time he played would say he was 'no fool' in doing such a thing .

Spartacus7868 - What gives you that impression, Reynolds is a one Club man and has an affinity with Ampthill Town

 

Rhodes,

 

Do you actually have the information to make this statement?

Reynolds I take it doesn't like new boss (joint) Craig Bignall ?

 

Strange arrangements at Ampthill. Their website indicates that there will be 3 joint-managers. This, if correct, is clearly stupid and a recipe for disaster. The original joint-managers should step aside and work under Craig Bicknell and the club officials should do the right thing for the club and appoint one man as boss.

You can bet your bottom dollar that Craig Bicknell has already spoken to Stuart Reynolds at length

Would there be such a need with 3 managers?

 

Wonder if there has ever been 3 joint managers at a club before....

Macca (Adam Dedman) will no doubt happily accept more of a coaching role and let Goodridge and Bicknell manage the side, especially as i know Macca wants to get back playing as he is still under 30. Dont think there will be an issue as strange as it looks on paper.

Maybe I'm missing the point on this one then.

 

Why is he even a joint manager if he would be happy just doing some coaching and concentrating on playing?

 

He's clearly spoken out with a desire to do the managers role and as he has been given the chance why would he not want to be fully involved?

 

All a little strange to me.

SO have other clubs Rhodes ;)

Really, that's interesting, so Reynolds must be highly rated around the SSML bazaars then despite NF in Football suggesting that he lacks fitness

Joint managers / coaches etc is great for all involved... they'll all be able to blame it on each other if it goes tits up.

Goalscorers are hard to find.

 

Despite a lack of pace he seems to score consistently season on season.

 

Maybe why he is highly thought of

Because this whole thing with Padbury happened very quickly, when the season ended there was no Padbury and Macca was joint manager to provide an influence on the training field and bringing players in. Now that Padbury have arrived it is clear that his input from that area is no longer needed and no doubt he will focus on playing and coaching. That said he may still be classed as joint manager on paper.

So it can be presumed that he is happy with this arrangement then?

If anybody has taken the trouble to watch Stuart Reynolds closely during a game they will know that he never puts a foot wrong, he has a football brain of Hoddle and Brady proportions and his first touch is mouth watering, I would certainly put him right up there with former SSML legends Craig Hammond, Lee Scott and Takumi Ake who have all gone on to bigger and better things

I'm sure you know full well that Craig Hammond has just won Step 3 player of the season at Cambridge City, Lee Scott almost got Bedfont Town to the Playoff's last season single handedly and Takumi is sadly returning to his native Japan shortly (see below) after successful spells at Hendon, Team Bath, Newport County and Chelmsford City, what more can I say:
