Despite lifting a trophy in his first five months and playing some good football some of the fans were not convinced. They could not accept, in principle, a man who had won two league titles, two League Cups and an FA Cup with Arsenal.

Highly rated youngster Connor Taylor has joined Tamworth on a month long loan deal. After progressing through the Academy and into the reserves over the last few seasons, it will be the 18 year old's first taste of proper competitive football and if his reserve appearances are anything to go by, as long as he finds his feet, you would expect him to create a fair bit of a stir.
