Jordan Nicholson perhaps ?

http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/local/darlington/16294746.Wright_close_to_signing_a_forward/

Manager Tommy Wright is close to adding a forward to his ranks, a player who can also play on the left-wing and previously played for him at Nuneaton Town.

He was last season in League Two and Wright is delighted to have landed one of his transfer targets.

was out injured for a considerable time im guessing his contract was honored .
even through his lengthy injury
i liked him as a player thought he was ok at this level.
part of what became a solid defence under managers that understood that if you cant defend your fecked
cant blame him for stepping up a level at his age.
good luck fella.

Perhaps I’m being a naive, but many posters on here have long cried for a return to part-time (which I wholeheartedly agree with). Surely the departure of the full--time players is an inevitable consequence of that process? After all, they have mortgages to pay and families to support. However, what is disgraceful is the absence of any information from club sources, and an apparent failure to secure appropriate transfer fees for the best players. On another point - I ask why the local journalists aren’t seeking explanations - is it just a consequence of the demise of the Trib? Where’s Mort Birch when you need him......

Have seen what’s happening for a long long time now,have said all along full time,model ect a recipe for disaster.
Deserted by its fans,Boro with LT at the helm have gone backwards.
Spending money is one thing ,spending it when you haven’t got it criminal.

We are where we are ,owner out his depth,players and decent players at that leaving.
Any manager,GC or anyone else have their work cut out to produce anything that resembles a Con North side.

I for one can’t see anything but a dismal season for Boro,hope I am wrong,with everything going on I recon I might just be confident on this one.

I never liked/wanted full time but I can see why the route was chosen.

Thing is; no guarantee things would have been different part time and I suspect money gained from transfers would have been a lot less if at all - would say whitehouse have joined a part time club - who knows

Been told it was a bit of a Falacy Boro full time last season - 20 hours /elk and most/all had other jobs.

Good part time is better then crap full time (and vice versa)

My bet is if Man City (with current players) went part time they would be pretty damn good - also would bet they don’t work more than 20 hours/week

What really fucked the support off IMO, was an admin error.

Final straw for some.

Showed us up as amateurs trying to be professionals.

We were full time. We’d have made the playoffs as a full time side if not for an admin error. FACT. Who knows, may have won them and gone back up at the first attempt. Kicked on.

Honest mistake. But held us back, and cost us.

Full time hasn’t been the death of us. How we’ve gone about things overall as a club has been the issue.

Read the final sentence and you’ll realise I didn’t say it was.

But the FACT is, not an opinion, we’d have made the playoffs as a full time side without it.

We may be in the league above without it.

Fans may not see us as so amateur without it.

Crowds may be higher without it.

It wouldn’t have been same old, same old Boro fuck ups.

You can give an opinion that full time has been shit. I can give a fact that without the admin error we’d have made playoffs as a full time side.

Agree with you there Moley . Don't really matter if we're full or part time as long as we are run properly . The club has been run in a shambolic manner almost for as long as i can remember and the fans have just got fed up of it all . We're seen as a joke throughout the town and within football in general . The shambles that has been this pre season will be the end for yet more previously loyal supporters .

We would still have been a full time club in the league above had we got promoted, we were stuffed after that first season because several of the Ilkeston players left, Wilson could not find decent replacements and we started the next season badly, we then repeated that under Wright last yr he couldn’t find good enough full time players either that’s why crowds declined, as I said being full time has been a big mistake

Had we been a full time club in the league above, people would have been more open to accept the model as working! Crowds would have been higher. I come higher. We’d have been able to attract a better calibre of full time.

The fact is, however you wanna dispute it, that as a full time side we made the playoffs if it wasn’t for an admin error.

I honestly believe it may have been possible to make the model work , at least financially .
The problem is there will always be times when cash flow is a bit low and then you someone to step in and help until it's sorted . That's a lot for one person , particularly if there not particularly wealthy .
Not defending the model as i've said elsewhere i'm pretty neutral on it . Also feel the way we went about it alienated the fans , but that's a completely different argument .

£50,000 Sheree between five or ten is not so much.

M your a fair lad when it comes to a discussion
cast your mind back three seasons
what was the talk on here prior to the start
we will have a bunch of academy kids playing for us and we will be relegated
and as you said an admin error fucked us up from the play-offs
next season three four games in whatever again relegation beckons along comes Tommy and all is well.
till yet again last season same story, we are getting relegated
the manager is shit the team is shit all blamed on the model
along come's DM and turns it round
but still people hate the model and lets be honest thats anyone's prerogative
im not championing it or the chairman or the manager or indeed the players
just saying it as it has been
there is not one untruth in the above
now those that want a part time team are going to get one
WHY because the outgoing chairman cant sustain the club in its present guise
what do i think ? full time or part time good or bad ......shit happens

"now those that want a part time team are going to get one

Doesn't that suggest that the model didn't add up?

From what I understand the real income is from the academy but I've still never seen an explanation why we couldn't have had an academy without a full time first team. The 2 don't have to be inter-linked surely?

My main issue with the model was that it simply didn't feel right. Can't put it into words but it just felt alien and left me thoroughly disconnected. I don't want my club so brazenly used as a shop window. After going for decades religiously I doubt I've seen 10 matches in last 2 seasons. Wasn't a purposeful boycott I just lost the attachment and simply didn't want to attend. Attendances suggest there's many have felt similar. If we go back to being a "normal" part time team next season (even if it's a shit one) that has basic communication with supporters I think I'll return and I don't think I'm the only one.

ok i take on board what your saying Q
all im saying is LT went down the route that he thought was in everyone's best interests and yes that includes his own
we all know he tried to offload the club some time ago. it fell through
people said there would be no takers
he has proven half of that wrong already. he has sold the ground
you and me both know to run a club at this level you need money and the backing of the fans
he has said no more, and that is not a crime btw + the fans dont want to know again ok
ok as i said shit happens this town has the club it deserves, that is a statement not a criticism
what pisses me off on this forum on the above subject is that everything that has happened negative is the result of the so called 'model' anything good is despite it.
i like to believe i give fair comment im not pro or anti Thorn
talk is cheap ( read this forum on a daily basis ) action / involvement is not.
three clubs were relegated this season from CN did any of them run on the 'model' no.
so it cant be a disaster can it ? on the field that is. off the field has not been good at all it has been handled badly particularly on the PR side, see i can look past the end of my nose and see both sides something one or two on here are not prepared to do
you and others dont want it. again ok, so we move on.
hence im hoping that the 200 or whatever who walked away return whatever the final outcome of all this shit.

Ilkeston where or what have they ever been in football
Celtic ran it as an academy by signing kids we did not
Gateshead are ex league who have been full time for years.
you pass over all the full time clubs that exist to cherry pick three examples
the first one i give you
the second one bears no relation to the way we were run
the third one is just a piece of convenient opportunism to name a club you know nothing about or its circumstances

They started with a mixture of lads released from league clubs and proven non league players who wanted to be full time very much like us . As for young lads depends what you mean by young lads . They were more early twenties than teens .

How long ago did Stalybridge abandon it - I see they were 2nd from bottom last season at a level below this.

Also, I don't believe the wage bill was much different being full-time or part-time.

There are indeed loads of clubs out there running highly successful academies who are part time . Boreham Wood are massively supported ( financially ) by their academy and came within one game of promotion to the EFL last season despite having crowds of 300-400 and being part time . O'Neil has left us to run an academy at a club who certainly won't be full time any time soon if ever . Whatever the reasons for needing to be full time it certainly wasn't to run alongside a full time academy .

Part of the model (being full time) was based on Wilson "success" at Ilkeston.
He would sign "cast offs" and sell them on, giving another income stream.

Would the likes of Whitehouse, Ironside, Chambers, Green (and a host of others) signed if part-time? Who knows.

this part time full time debate is all about ifs and buts
the bottom line is no matter which you need to be funded or face the alternative
hello Bedduff and Adders again
take the mega rich out of the equation and every club is backed financially
look no further than 8 miles down the road, tens of millions poured in to shore it up over the years
McGinty the ex chairman was literally hours from overseeing the club go BANG
he sold a third ( ? ) of the stadium for about 4m which was about 50pc of its real value ( the share im talking about )
to get him through till the end of the season
we both know how many clubs that were once big boys are now residing in poverty compared to the 'village people' or the new in crowd who have backers who have took center stage that is modern football for you im afraid
but you know what football changes, it will again one day, some of the 'flavor' of the month clubs will go back to whence they came given time.

I pretty agree.

I really don't think any owner/board/chairman of NBFC/NTFC have ever made a decision not in the best interests of the club.

If LT has been propping up a mid-table conf-north club for about £50,000pa I call that a success. However, £50,000 for one person is a hell of a lot.

I still believe that if NBFC are going to run in the black, then forget conf-north (and possibly central division also).

he has Vale up for sale or is it their ground ( ? )
do you think if he ever does sell he will think about moving in here

I didn't think there was any doubt that the deal was for Smurf to buy the ground, not a share of it.

I hadn't seen anything suggesting he was only buying half of the ground (by anything I mean not stuff on forums).

I very much doubt they would have , unless we could offer them big money , which i doubt we could .
A counter argument could be that how many good non league players couldn't we sign being full time . Just like to stress i wasn't anti the model , neutral if i'm honest . I actually think it could work if someone behind the scenes had some way of supporting it financially when needed . IMO LT couldn't and that's how we've ended up in this mess . My point is you don't have to be full time to run a full time academy .

I never bought into the academy; well not the way it was understood/sold.
I now see the true "benefit".

I am still at a loss to how it works (and to be honest why).
Add to this the lack of facilities. If you look at Rugby. There stadium is similar to Liberty Way, but they also have a 3G pitch.
Looking at other acadamies, they have loads more.
HOWEVER - This did not stop the boro one functioning.
