Magpies sign world-beater

MUFC Ltd had the worst disciplinary record in the Conference South last season: 107 yellow cards, 9 red cards, 2 reports and 526 points. Staines Town were, apparently, a distant second (484 points).

The Board's 'bit of a debrief', following relegation, contained the following line:

"There was unanimity that ill-discipline and lack of fitness had cost the Club dear"

Derek Duncan - a left-sided player formerly of W@nky Wanderers and, most recently, champions Woking - is one.

The other is David Pratt; a striker from Basingstoke Town.

Pratt's claim to fame?


Why don't we re-sign Luke Evans, Jamie Jarvis, and Craig O'Connor, while we're at it?! 


In all seriousness, anyone fancy a wager as to whether our 'hard-working' new striker will score more than centre-half Vernon Pratt did, when he top scored - with, I think, 11 goals - in the 1994/95 season?

Some interesting comments re Duncan on the Conf South forum -


"Should prove to be a really good signing"

Oh good.

"isn’t afraid to dive in when on a yellow"

Oh dear!
