I may have missed something but were there any on the tour?
The club got maximum value as we're so poor by sending them back as foot passengers on the ferry. They'll still be hitchhiking the rest of the way home.I believe we couldn't afford the costs of their flights back, which of course we would have been liable for if they had appeared in any of the friendlies
Ah my bad. It’s funny how the memory plays tricks at my age!Martin Aldridge was signed directly from Northampton Town in December 1995, not a free agent on trial in the pre-season at all. I was at the club doing work experience at the time and remember it very well!
