Mariners Squad - 2020-2021

The challenge for boys like Tsekenis is the amount of game time they'll see. Training with the first team brings obvious benefits but it's that transition from Academy to breaking through that sees them in a no mans land. A number of the fringe boys played in the NPL last Saturday and struggled to get into the flow of the game. Throwing them into a top flight game without games behind them is also challenging.

Just got word that the club isn’t intending on keeping Jordan Smylie around. And I’d say his current youth contract will run out very soon as he’s now “over age” for the NPL side.
This is just an absolutely massive shame. He’s proven his worth, by my recollection scholarship contracts aren’t counted in registration limits for the squad? Is he not worth that? He’s been to hell and back in his time with us and come out the other side in flying colours in my opinion. And after getting that news it makes me think the minutes he’s gotten this season is abit of a thanks for your time with us see ya later.
He’s shown just as much energy as Alou, similar pace and imo better technical ability. Not bagging Alou because I think I’m in love the bloke. But this is grinding my gears. And unfortunately the way this league is set up, he won’t be the last of this incredible current batch of youth boys we won’t be able to keep.

I read that Sam Silvera`s loan time was up.
Does anyone know if he is back training with the team?

Also,what`s doing with DRD? Has he signed overseas or is he coming back?...:popcorn:

Love your work normally Michael but Jordan is not fit to lace Alou's boots imho. He has over achieved in his cameos this year but I think he is NPL from now on.

oh ofcourse, I totally agree he isn’t to the effectiveness of my boy alou. Just saying he’s shown a similar level of hunger. And pretty decent ability. It’s not necessarily the clubs fault he won’t be kept here, he is past the age threshold and Kuol is ahead of him and then there’s the likes of Tsekenis and (on loan) Cahill who are younger. The biggest issue with our game in this country.
Smiles can go and make decent coin and bang some goals in NPL.

at the end of the day, it’s brilliant to have this type of conundrum again.

And the exact reason we need a reserve league!!

DDS making noises about going to Europe again. Time to lock him in for 3 years - with a decent release clause/sellon clause.
I think the more imperative thing would be locking in Nisbet long term and grooming him to step in to that role. Depending on the money involved it might be hard to retain DDS long term but we’re in a good spot to make Nisbet a long term mariner.
