This is where our recruitment/academy baffles me if I'm honest this lad has been at oxford city u18s scored a hatful of goals 65 in 50 games, hes now at north leigh fc granted I think there struggling but he is still scoring goals and us as a club cant find/get a decent natural finisher!!!! I have personally seen him play and he is a big tall lad, physical, both footed and scores pretty much every game a natural finisher.........

Because it's easy to make the step up!!! I'm sure the club have a good idea on the local leagues; we must be watching our own loanees at many of these clubs anyway.

Isn’t that exactly what spasov is doing ?

Totally different levels. I was of an average Sunday League standard and ended up playing in a match who had one player who played for Faringdon Town. They aren't a particularly senior side but this individual ran the show and bagged 5 goals whilst setting up several others.

OCFC U18s and now North Leigh - do me a favour.

The OP derides Obkia, yet Jon ran riot against a load of part-timers in Ireland during the pre-season tour. I suspect Obkia would look like Messi at the standard that North Leigh play at.

I'm with you on this paying my hard earned money to watch a load of useless has beens steal a living enough enough, id much rather Bradbury/spasov or any other of our youngsters be given a chance ahead of what we currently have at our disposal and have had the past 2 seasons! just saying I have seen landers play and believe me hes a better striker than obika/sam smith will ever be..... its all point of view and opinions I'm sure there is loads of talent locally which for whatever reason haven't been given the chance or been missed by our so called scouting system.

I'm not saying its easy to make the step up but what I am saying is where our current and last few strikers lack is infront of goal correct??just look at there scoring records speak for itself. garath macleary of reading f.c was spotted at oxford city gone on to have a great career this lads a natural finisher half a chance and the balls in the net!

You clearly were not in Ireland
He scored and yes we won those games BUT for those with any footballing brain the writing was on the wall re JO and the team

I wasn’t.

I’ll have a look at your posts from that time to read your forecasts of doom.
