Friday 8th September.

It seems as though Town have suddenly got the hang of this signings malarkey with further transfer activity taking place today. However once again itís a case of one in, one out. Perhaps there is a problem at the McAlpine and they forgot to paint enough car parking spaces in the staff area, resulting in a cap on the number of employees at the club.

Anyway, today saw the departure of Rob Edwards to Chesterfield although I have yet to hear any mention of a fee for the player. Edwards seemed increasingly not to fit into Bruceís plans and this was a shame, because he always gave plenty of effort when he played and he became a very versatile player. Originally signed from Crewe as a wide left sided striker, circumstances dictated that during the following season he adopted a left wing back role. After a shaky start he blossomed in this new role and became a real crowd favourite and also played occasionally in midfield and at right back when called upon. Once again it is a shame to see this sort of player depart but clearly Bruce was not going to select him, and the offer of a three year contract when youíre 30 years of age must have tempted him to the 3rd division leaders. Good luck Rob.

Our new arrival is another loan player and this time he is a tall striker from Sunderland so perhaps he will be able to communicate up front with fellow North Easterner, Martin Smith. Scot, Kevin Kyle, is only 19 years old and should he get a game for Town (and he would be unlucky not to!) then this would be his league debut. Apparently Sunderland manager Peter Reid expects big things of him and is using the loan period to give him some first team experience.
