Ex-Gull watch

Post by tomogull » 16 Feb 2016, 14:13

I was curious to find out what had happened to Courtney Cameron as he didn't seem to be featuring in the Southport side. He is now playing for Brackley Town in the National North league and came on as sub (probably his first game) last Saturday in front of 356 fans in their home 2 - 3 defeat against Nuneaton. Incidentally, I noticed that Lathanial Rowe-Turner is playing for Nuneaton these days.

Several ex-gulls got on the scoresheet yesterday. Ade Azeez (Wimbledon), Billy Bodin !! (he's doing okay at Bristol Rvrs), Matt Green (Mansfield), Billy Kee (Accrington), Ryan Bowman & Nicky Wroe. I noticed there was an 'Acheopong' who scored at both ends in the Truro/Ebbsfleet match and I wondered if Duane had gone on loan from Dover to Ebbsfleet. But the Ebbsfleet Acheopong is called Anthony. Maybe his brother? Conor Wilkinson ( he played for us on loan from Bolton for about three games until he threw a strop at being substituted (deservedly so 'cos he was cr*p) by Hargreaves is now on loan at Newport.

The keeper who just saved Juan Mata penalty for Mitjyland against Man United is the keeper who made a massive balls up against Aldershot to hand them the league title when we were last in the conference. Remarkable

Les Afful (loan Jan 2006 for 5 games) scored two to help Truro beat Bath City 3-1

Next year we might be watching Les again at Plainmoor!

Niall Thompson started at Hucknall Town this season, and half a season and scoring many goals he moved to Sheffield FC in the NPL South. After a few of weeks there, he has now moved onto Mickleover Sports in the NPL and also a relegation rival to Whitby Town, and he scored yesterday.

Couple of our former James' mentioned in dispatches over the weekend. James McQuilkin scored both of the goals in Kidderminster's 2 - 1 away win at Lincoln to keep their very slim hopes of survival alive. James Hurst was sent off for Guiseley. What a shame ......... :whistle: Just had a thought - if Hurst is still our top scorer at the end of the season, will he be presented with a trophy ?? I sincerely hope not !!

I hear Billy Bodin is getting back to full fitness now and was amongst the goals again for Rovers scoring two for the first time in a professional game.

He has scored 8 goals for Rovers this season. Shame he could not do it for United.

Bodin was good during his loan spell, when we were at the top of the league. He wasn't the same player during the permanent spell and when we weren't such a good side.

He scored again yesterday - goal no. 9. Billy Key is still rattling them in for Accrington, John Marquis (shame his loan spell with us ended so quickly because of injury) is knocking them in for Northampton and Jayden Stockley has become a firm favourite up the road at St James Park. In the short time he has been on loan at City, I think he has scored 8.

Billy Kee was one of ours before he asked for a transfer 'cos he wanted to move back to his roots 'up north'. He was transferred to Burton where his goalscoring record was better than the few he scored at Plainmoor. Both Marquis and Stockley are on loan and I doubt that Northampton or Exeter could afford them either ! ;-)

I watched Bobby Olejnik for Exeter City and Matt Green for Mansfield on Tuesday.

Got to say, despite conceding three goals Bobby is still league 1/championship level in my opinion. Played pretty much as a sweeper getting involved in keep ball triangles with the defence. Was a pleasure to watch.

Matt Green didn't do a great deal but played as the lone striker so was often isolated.

For what it's worth, City looked good with the ball but were guilty of over playing it and not getting it forward quickly enough. Pretty on the eye but no penetration other than for about twenty mins of the second half when they got their goals.
Mmmmmm, beeeeeeeer.
