No surprise about Scott Barrow, with the statement that he's joining a full-time club. I think the club did well to retain his services for as long as they did.

Not surprised that Scott barrow is leaving but deeply shocked about losing the goalkeeper.Like imp says we now to date lost three quality players..It is now time for money to be channeled into the playing side as when I see what some of the administration staff if true are earning it is mouth watering What I would like to know is does the elected board have the main say in distribution of funds from the pitch and income from Webly roman bar etc

I don't actually know where Scott & Ollie are going but I am confident that they have gone upto a higher level of football and we can't begrudge them that. In these 2 cases it's not about money but progression as they are both young and want to play at the highest level they can as opposed to the other departures where they've either gone sideways or backwards.

The playing budget has increased by 42% over the last few seasons and the club is trying to devote as much cash as possible into the playing side. Without administrative/catering etc. staff the club could not function off the field to provide the money needed to put a team on the pitch and as a matter of interest how do you expect the club to run its off pitch activities without staff?

Yep it is only June, that doesn't mean we should not be worried, plays are going the wrong way,so June,July, August
is not the matter here,the worry is we are losing players if its to higher pay offers or full time positions we are leaking players !!

The date is irrelevant we have friendlies in July so it would be nice to see some signings,as far as we know at the moment we have two named ,what about the remainder of last season's squad news of signings stimulates interest sells season tickets etc..

Looking back at a year ago, no new players at all joined the club until after the pre-season friendlies started. Two of them were to play a significant part in the season - Curtis McDonald, joined on 4th July, and Scott Barrow, who didn't sign until 4th August. The other three new players who joined, presumably as a result of their performances in the friendly matches were Shane Parry, Curtis Hutson and Ben Watkins.

If we look at two years ago, three players joined during the month of June - Chris Hugh, Ashley Evans and Kyle Patten. But it was only after the commencement of the friendly matches that Rhys Baggridge, Elliot Scotcher and Jaye Bowen were signed on.

Dearly Departed

Post  Boz1964 on Thu Jun 22, 2017 11:29 am

There seems to be a lot of disappointment around after the news of departures from last season's squad- with Hereford doing what Chelsea, Man United and other big fish have done over the years to their 'minnow' rivals by poaching talent just purely to place them on the bench or disrupt other teams.

But it's not all doom and gloom....at our level mercenaries will only perform as well as they pay motivates them.

I'd like to think that with the arrival of Fleetwood and Morgan and of course return of the Merthyr Messi from the wilderness of the treatment bench after two years is an exciting prospect in itself.

As well as our loyalists I am sure that Gavin has sufficient contacts after his time at much higher level and will use that experience to unearth a diamond or two from the rough.

Where did Webley or Georgie come from?

We have a big enough catchment area and enough proud Welshmen, who want to represent their Country ' In Europe' and are patriotic enough to want to show those across the border that Merthyr Town is still a bastion of great football and one of the top Non- League clubs around.

Whilst I wish both former players well- as they will be missed - it is a team game and not about ' gel-ing' ( and I am not talking about Brylcream or Dove Care either) but as one changing room door closes another opens and a club our size needs to promote from within.

If nothing else should make the Hereford Derby a firey classic this season....

I know who my Merthyr money will be on - the backs of our players jersey.

Post  Barneyboy on Thu Jun 22, 2017 12:02 pm

Webley and ceri were valley boys who were discovered by scouts?
No scouting,no discovering,no hidden gems.
So much has been about the ground redevelopment and improvements with very little about bring newly discovered talents coming through.
We need to go back and relook at the basic infrastructure of bringing talent through and how we find talent in the first place.
No good having a new ground and new facilities if you don't have the team to draw in the crowd.
Just my own views

Did say best of luck getting a answer to that question!! As far as I can see the CEO set the budget I'm assuming
the board would have ratified and excepted the figure, if the loss of playing staff is down to budget then I don't think there's much we can do,yes money is a big attraction ,there is only so much Gav can achieve if funds are limited .

Barrow on March to Yarrow

Post  Boz1964 on Fri Jun 23, 2017 2:17 pm

Really sad to see Scott Barrow leave the Club....but always felt he was of a far greater standard than our current level of football....he was loyal to the side too....seeing out the season despite other playing offers- as he was part of the team ....not many have such integrity....and for that I wish him every success....Gateshead have a fine capture....he may have only been with us for one season but he he was quality and a pleasure to watch....a true Martyr....Boz

As far as I'm aware the players that have left are Bull, Reffell, McLaggon, Barrow & O Davies. I honestly don't know of anymore but training starts tomorrow evening so we'll see who is there.
