Scouting at Grays

Magnum PI

Robins Nest, Oahu
Magnum decided to head down to Grays vs Rushden for some first hand intelligence on four of our old players. Great decision ! 0-0

Here was the lowdown

Tommy Black (Centre Midfield) - Subbed after 60 minutes for a kid. Played in the centre of midfield and looked a pale shadow of the player we had, which means he must be bad. His passing was poor and the highlight of the night was when instead of kicking the ball he stood on it, and injured himself

Stuart Thurgood (Centre Midfield) - Had a poor first half but dominated the second half with a typical all action display. Never liked him but you always know what you get with him on your team

Jamie Stuart (Centre Back)- Dreadful first half where the Rushden centre forwards really got at him, but much more assured in the second half as Rushden were a whimper of the side that dominated the first half

Ronnie Jones (Centre Back) - Clearly using Jamie Stuart as a role model in the first half wasnt helping, but again played very commanding in the second half and was probably closest scoring in the second half with a towering header just over the bar. Got a feeling he might do ok at this level

So no goals to add to the list, and if I was Tilson I dont think Grays are the team to go scouting at.
