We're a shite league one club with a small squad. The idea that we ever send any player out on loan for any other reason than "Melksham town is probably your level, sorry mate" is a stretch.

Sometimes that can be the case, especially toward the end of a player's 1st or 2nd year pro contract when they're clearly not going to make it and it can help them get out and get seen but mainly it's to get young fringe players who aren't currently pushing for a 1st team spot experience of playing men's football. As has been referenced many times, we don't have a reserve side or an U23s so if we have fringe players who we think have potential to develop but aren't ready for the 1st team it gets them out and playing regular football. At Championship clubs these lads would be in the U23s or also going out on loan to non-league sides.

Fun Scott Twine fact (well, it's from Wikipedia, but let's assume it's fact).

He made his debut coming on to replace Islam Feruz. Islam fucking Feruz! How long ago does that feel now!

I had a similar experience earlier when I realised that Charlie Austin is bloody 31!

IIRC it was a triple substitution Feruz, Iandolo and Jess Starkey...the last player being one I had totally forgotten even played for us!

It was, we played a very youthful side.

What a line up!

I was there with the old man. Early kick off and we forced the pub to open! Already down. Sang our hearts out for 90mins.

Dont bother, he was a midfielder signed from Brightons youth team via Gills, absolutely dire, now still only 25 and plays for Worthing, about his level.

That squad was/is a sad indictment of how the Powers that be wanted to take the club in that direction.

Shameful

You are right that side and squad really was a shameful excuse for a Town side. Rarely matched in submediocrity all round.

Discussions started on a new contract.

Importantly, Town don't need him to sign that contract (even though that would be nice to, as I previously mentioned "tie him down" to one) as now they have or are offering him a new deal, that is all that is required in order for us to get a fee via tribunal (if someone doesn't pay higher for him).

This is also different to just a "bit of development money" too, it takes into account all of his time at Town including simple things like the length of time, apps made and so on, including development, so time at Newport will also come into the development of the player.

Of course depending on things, he might well want to stay at Town but from TWs words, it seems like the club have been instructed to sell if a club meets Mr Power's valuation. Be interesting to know what he thinks he is worth currently.

I would say leave it until the end of the season because Town will get a fee for Twine anyway, whether he now signs a longer/newer/better deal and Power/Town can give guaranteed reassurance that a minimum of £xxxxxx will be generated from the sale of Twine. At Town's level, the "more for a player in Jan" rule isn't quite as prevalent as further up the chain.
