I recently posted that out of lower league strikers I would most like to see Lee Boylan join The Blues. The reply from several was that he had crohns disease and would not pass a medical. Since then we learn that Tilly attempted to sign him last season. I can only admire Boylans loyalty to Canvey if this is true. I do feel sad though that a league club, just down the road, managed by a former canvey team mate, is not enough to entice the lad to Roots Hall. Are we really so unfashionable as to come second to a conference side that needs a year or two more at that level and a new stadium before it can seriously fulfil league status aspirations?. I think its time we saw a few stops pulled out and a striker with Boylans scoring record should be brought to the Hall.
