I first saw Minturn play for the youths about 3 years ago and he was a big lad back then and impressed me, I know many people who are close to his Dad, I think he can progress but will need more game time, I would like to think we could possibly get him a 6 month loan at maybe Conference level to build him up to be ready for the frst team.

He has made a few errors when he has played but thats expected in a play of such young years and he has done very well in games too but I dont want to need to rely on playing him as a couple of poor games could ruin his confidence and put him back in his development.

I would already say he is a better prospect than Kadji was.
I couldn't agree more with you. He has made errors but haven't they all this season.
He was brilliant at Orient, came on for Brewitt at home and was very good.

Kept in bold the ones that I'd want. We do have some dross on our books, even though not on much money seems such a waste of wages.

Parsons and Dabre have had chances and don't look at the level, but unless you're a PJT/Wiltshire Cup specialist, I'm not sure we can judge the potential of young players like Cowmeadow and Massey.

I thought Massey was signed for the future, was never getting near the first team this year.

Unless they've seen in his loans that he just hasn't progressed you might think he's got another year

Massey is one for the future as is Roberts, neither signed to challenge for the first team as such but you would hope both kick on.

Massey is the same age as Minturn and Roberts being the same age as Clayton and Lavinier, I think more was expected of Roberts but his failed loan at Aldershot seems to have set him back in the pecking order.

Roberts came back from Aldershot and was never seen again. Banbury asked for a loan again and STFC said they wanted him at a higher level. Should have gone back to Banbury to get his confidence back in hindsight rather than not getting games etc

Surely any game time is better than none at that point in the season.

Cheers Neems Smiley I have seen many posts on FB and other places contradicting those contract lengths and the club seemingly unwilling to discuss lengths of contracts upon signing lately.

I would keep all the ones you marked as options plus extend Austin and Williams stays, I would offer Minturn another year too.

Is there any reason why the club would be 'secretive' on contract lengths? Is there anything to gain from fans/the general public not knowing how long a player is contracted for. (open and honest and all that) I can only think it's to keep other clubs from being made aware of contract situations, but surely Agents would have all that information and it would be widely shared so I just wondered why some players contract lengths were known and some not. Unless the ones with options on are complicated and are not shared as they aren't technically a specific contract length or something?

This is a general question really, not an STFC one per se.

Interesting point. Could it be that some contracts with an 'option' actually involve a pay rise or bonus when that option is taken, meaning clubs don't publicise ts? Fans could be wondering why on earth somebody has beeen let go when in reality the cost of extending the contract was too high as a result of not achieving promotion, only getting gates of 9000 in L2 etc!

I think we are expecting the retained list today.

Any shocks on the horizon?
