  1. There is a Daniel Gardner on Salford City's retained list. Is this the same Danny Gardner who played for us. Wikepedia shows nothing after him being released from Odham but it is not always the most reliable source of information.
  2. Probably but will wait awhile to see what is happening.
  3. I think the young lad was a Fullarton signing so maybe we could have a more experienced number 2 next season but I would not want it to be a regular thing to start games without a keeper on the bench.

    todays game

    Can't find full match on youtube.
  6. Been trying to watch todays game and I keep getting the can't find this page message, anyone else having this problem.
  7. Enjoy your holiday, see you at the first pre season at Brighouse.
  8. I have seen him more than once in the last couple of seasons.
  9. Went for quite a bit of cash but a lot of it went to the club we signed him from (I think it was Mansfield) who had a big sell on clause.
  10. He wasn't at the time when he played for us and wasn't prepared to bide his time.
  11. HE was competing against Gregory and Vardy, he was the one who wanted to go and initially went to Stocksbridge, would anyone have been happy for him to have been played ahead of Gregs or Jamie.
  12. I know it's a joke but on a serious note, could anyone see DB letting those two anywhere near our club.
  13. He was fine with paying big money wages to players while he was top dog for it in the conference but then along came Salford paying even more stupid money to players and when he couldn't compete he didn't like it.
  14. I got the impression our players were competing in the crossbar challenge not a penalty shootout.
  15. Depends what you mean by hard man. He was as tough as they come, great in the air and if he tackled you you knew you had been tackled but he was not a dirty player. I don't recall him being the type of player who flattened players who got past him. Perhaps age dims the memory but for me he was one of our best centre backs ever.
  16. Didn't Tony run a shop down at the bottom of the street that is now under the glass roof (westgate) ?. I seem to remember him stood outside having a fag most times I went past.
  17. I used to spend a lot of time talking to Tony in the Horton Street shop. He lived and breathed Halifax Town. He then had a fallout if I remember rightly and moved over to the dark side working for the rugby club. It must have been some fallout for him to do that. He was one of the nicest guys you could meet and died far too young.
  18. The Ada club is still going, had a few good Saturday nights up there recently.
  19. The rat's real name was the Druids, two other long gone from that are were The Bridge opposite the entrance to Clayhouse park and the Shoulder of Mutton a couple of streets behind the Star at road end greetland.
  20. Pool cues must have been the weapon of choice up there, we had to abandon a darts and doms match up there when local lads wouldn't stop playing pool in front of the dart board (totally ignored the guy behind the bar) and attacked one of their own team when he tried to stop them.
  21. No I'm talking about when we were in the glue leagues, Gainsborough was when we were going for promotion to the league. We could have been in Unibond Premier.
  22. Was that in a cup game (it could have been the FA Trophy) in a game town didn't really want to get in the way of their league aspirations.
  23. Beehive by the old courier office.
