Just been looking at Devitt as he seems to have been raised to almost Storey levels of greatness by many, bar a couple of goodish seasons at Carlisle its all a bit journeyman!

Here was my take on Devitt....

Quote
Devitt would be a value for money sort of signing.... only really showed as a decent Div 4 player, after a lot of loans from Hull, when he went to Morecambe, and has backed that up at Carlisle...

Decent enough Div 4 player, that's the sort of thing needed.  We have to be realistic about the sort of thing we can get, it may be that like 2 years ago with Flitcroft, the "big hitters" will pay more.

Bonds fell out with 'Arry a while ago apparently and still aren't back on good terms.

I too would like us to take a risk on one of these lower league high scorers, as I have said many times in the past.

Fylde's Danny Rowe 170 goals in the last 4 seasons but is aged 29
Edinburgh City's Blair Henderson aged 24 with 30 goals last season from 36 games out of contract
Ayr Utd's Lawrence Shankland aged 23 with 31 goals from 36 games out of contract
Raith's Kevin Nisbet aged 23 with 30 goals from 32 games out of contract

All could be worth a look IMO.

I like these signings as a bit of an unknown with exciting potential. haven't most Scottish players flopped in leagues 1 and 2 over the years? didn't Oxford sign a couple?

Many Scots strikers do fail when they play "proper football" Wink I think you mean Kane Hemmings, not sure if there were any others?

I think he was hinting more at strikers failing rather than Socts in general.

And Lee Peackock never played in Scotland even though he was Scottish FWIW.

That is exactly my point about Scots failing in England Cheesy but again he never played in Scottish football anyway.

Pfft, needs to be more specific then "Scottish strikers who have played in Scotland don't do well in Leagues 1 and 2". OK, pedants, off you go on that one Smiley
