So, Bogie and Lord get another of their targets with the signing of Iain Howard. I believe this is a very good signing and a great piece of the midfield jigsaw.
Thirty five goals from 111 appearances for Chester and not as an out-and-out striker says a lot about what he can offer County. If Howard can continue this kind of form in a division he knows about, have we got that cutting edge that will see us challenge at the top?
I like this quote from Bogie ‘We are absolutely delighted to obtain the signature of a player who will be a constant goal threat, not only with his own tally but with his assists’ – read the official news item here.

A little bit more upbeat news. Our groundsman, Liam Cash looks to have created a bowling green rather than a football pitch. The playing surface looks in better nick pre-season than for a number of years.

So. Can you feel them? Those butterflies, deep, deep in the pit of your stomach.
It’s a feeling I haven’t had for County pre-season for a few years now, but the signing of Iain Howard has only added to those butterflies. Win more than we lose. That will be a start. Anything else will be a bonus.
Isn’t it about time County over-achieved for us all?
