Dummett probably the worst example of sticking with cheap local talent other than Sammy. We're in the business of winning things and sticking within the rules of home grown UK talent . I still think there are far better LB knocking around than him .

Knocking around in Benwell or Gosforth? I'm not sure what you're saying, do you want local lads or bought in talent, because you don't seem to like either?

If there is no one local let's stop harking back to the days when we brought in lads from Wallsend Boys Club etc . The cash and the demands have risen so much those days are over . By decent LB I mean in any team not used to paying Premiership wages would sell us theirs .

That's what happens when you give young lads piles of money and loads of free time. Drinking and gambling. Dream job to be honest!

I remember him scoring and playing really well on his debut for Gateshead in 2014. He then disappeared after another 10 games to the Conference North and was never seen again.

I hear he's a sheep herder in the Faroe Islands now. Or was a mechanic in Tenerife? No, definitely a teppanyaki chef in Tokyo.

I remember him from the 05 version for literally no reason at all <laugh> Just a name that stuck in my head for some reason
