County's Number One ?
So, the rudiments of Stockport County 2013-14 are beginning to take shape.
Alan Lord shows off our new keepers here. Out with the old and back in with the old.
Yes, its Ormson and King. Or is it King and Ormson. I'm guessing it's Ian Ormson as No. 1 and Lewis King as number.. er... No. 14 ?
Not sure about this to be honest. I trust both keepers are in rude health and their backs have recovered from picking the ball out of the net last season. So, rather like Fagbola we have some more promising players.
Promising and young and inexperienced.
I could understand if we had signed up one of the duo alongside an old head, experienced in lower league football but maybe it is a sign of the current Stockport County that we just cannot attract such a player / pay them enough of a part-time wage?
Anyway, good luck to both of them. Both keepers do have promise and I wonder whether there is half an eye on selling one or other on the back of a half-season run of outstanding displays? Certainly, a £50,000 sale with add-ons would do the club the power of good.
What other assets (Fagbola?) do we have as a club? The family silver went a few years ago. The house is rented. The bank balance is in the red. So could the sale of just one promising youngster ensure a functioning County going forward ?
Acutally, we do have an asset. How short-sighted of me. Alan Lord. He has a proven track record of finding gems and passing the uncut versions onward and upwards hasn't he?
So maybe the news of these two new signings goes a little deeper than who plays between the sticks next season.
Let's hope Mr Lord can dig out a Pilks next. Or a Rowe. Or a Dickenson....
