I'd like to see him given a run in the team but I'd feel happier if we also signed an experienced keeper as cover if Davies is going to be out for, say, a couple of months. Don't think we should be going into this period with only two rookie keepers. Difficulty will be finding an experienced keeper who's good enough but who'll be happy to play second fiddle to a youngster.
But with respect that is never going to happen... if we sign anybody it is to play him instead of Pilling which judging from the comments of MM post Fylde is exactly what he plans to do.
I was critical of MM earlier this season for a number of reasons one of which was the abject way he treated the young players. His dropping of Clarke for the Fylde game was the latest in a long list IMO but far worse were his comments about Pilling after he was asked directly what would happen now Davies was injured. He said nothing positive whatsoever.... no wonder Drysdale refused a contract in close season and let's be honest here if Ridelagh had not been injured I am sure Clarke would still be sat on the bench at best.
