Killock & one of the Turners selected for Chester while Lenighan making his debut for Neil Aspins Halifax.
Great atmosphere, will report on efforts of Leeds players.
Couldn't they be playing in Division Four?
about 3 or 4 years ago i took my lad down to TA one saturday morning to have a nose about and watch some footy. lenighan stood out for the u-16's playing up front, but he was a big athletic lad for his age back then. he was subbed from the u-16 game and introduced as a sub for the u-18's where he still looked decent as ahe had a good technique. so far tonight he's looked rubbish. he seems to be one of those players who should be good and it was partly his athleticism that gave him his advantage at a younger age, hence leeds persevering with him first as a striker then as a central defender and now as an alleged rapist cum midfielder. trouble is he seems to lack the confidence and awareness to be much good. he's regularly 10 yards from the ball and not demanding it and he's losing his runners making him commit fouls as he's behind the game.
and i've only watched 30 minutes, but there's fuck all else on and the wife and kids are out and i've stuck a couple of quid on the match meaning i'll have an eye out on the game.
killock looks like he's found his level and turner looks nowt special. it seems chester's defensive record is crap whcih says it all.
the halifax town assistant manager, lee nogan, teaches my kids PE, so if i get the chance i'll have a word with him about lenighan to see what he thinks.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.
