Parkway Squad Announcement quashes rumours

Recommended Posts

'quashes rumours'. What rumours? I'll be honest was expecting more changes to the squad. There's a fair few positions that needed strengthening and haven't been done. Will be interesting to see how this season pans out!

Not unless the lads are given a chance to prove they are capable of playing at this level

Solid squad to be fair. But will yetton be warming the bench again if Hobbs is committed to staying. Be big job keeping that squad happy , lot of miles if your only getting 10 mins a game.

From past experience, squad announcements are only the start of it. Things tend to shake out as pre-season goes on, then into the start of the season as players don't get the game time they expected/were promised, or the signings for the rest of the squad don't materialise. Used to love the supplement that the Indy  produced at the start of each season (would be good to see it back, hint), it was entertaining to spot the players appearing in multiple team groups.

Can't remember who it was but I think someone was in three different photos : )

I would say that parkway squad will easily  challenge for the tile in the western league , it just a big ask to keep everyone happy  traveling  up and down that motorway  midweek and weekends will get bit boring after while . especially  when teams like tavistock , Bodmin etc will chuck the same money at you for playing on your doorstep .

I will be hoping parkway do well and will get up to see them as often as i can

There will always be players who don’t want to travel and others who will want to play at the best level they can. At least a Plymouth based player will have less travelling for home games and training than if they joined Bodmin. More of the squad have stayed than many predicted, but if any leave I’m sure others will jump at the chance to take their place. That squad should do well next season

Parkway need to be ambitious yet realistic.  Buckland are a good yardstick in that it has taken them a few seasons, a few managers and a bit of a turn over of players to get to the point where they are now title and promotion contenders.

There's something wrong if Stewart Yetton is warming the bench at Parkway. I'd like to see him and Hobbs next to each other. That could end up being a dream partnership.

 I have seen the quality of football and players in the league above and I honestly think Parkway will win the league without too much trouble. I firmly believe that the Southwest Premier League standard is actually higher than western league but it remains to be seen. One other point I would make is that the quality of some of the grounds in the league above that I’ve seen are nothing special to be honest. I would like to wish Parkway all the very best for next season and I hope to catch as many games as possible

Parkway should rinse that league no question. How often do SWPL teams tuck Toolstation teams away in the FA Vase? Should be another promotion on the cards.

Definitely do not want Parkway's  confidence to turn to arrogance, remember that Parkway lost at home in the FA Vase ( in my opinion, one or two comments from players and management about Wembley and winning the competition were a bit ill judged) and FA Cup to step 5 opposition last season.

Buckland have not managed to get out of this league as yet and they have been a good team for many seasons.  Lets just take it one game at a time lol.

I totally agree

Buckland would have probably gone up if it was not for the back log of fixtures due to the bad weather. Like a lot of clubs they had to play a lot of games in a short period of time 

You're probably right about Buckland going up if the fixture list hadn't piled up so badly,it has taken them a few seasons to adjust to the league. Would be interesting to hear from Buckland fans about how the step up went.

Would not be surprised to see one or two Parkway players move on once the season is a month or two in. The reality of leaving at 10am on Saturday morning for a trip up the M5, followed by getting home after 9pm that evening, may be something they don't fancy. Especially if Peninsula League clubs show an interest.
