Lets end with another youngster who wouldn’t need to locate shall we? I say youngster, Luer is 23 but then again in relation to me, that is young. Mind you, in relation to me, Bozzie is young.

Luer scored 12 in 21 for Burgess Hill in the Isthmian Division One South in 2014/15, which resulted in him being picked up by Hull City. I wonder if he might have been on the radar of our management team, they were keeping a keen eye on that scene around that time.

Anyway, Luer experience of the National League, League One, League Two and the Championship, but goals haven’t flowed easily. He showed some promise, scoring twice in three League Cup matches for Hull back in 2015/16, but since then his opportunities have bene limited.

He’s been on loan at Scunthorpe, Port Vale, Maidstone and Stevenage, impressing with his work ethic and link up play, but not getting that vital commodity, goals. He would be a project but at 23, that is perhaps to be expected. If the price was right and he was willing to be both patient and hard-working, he might make a good squad player.

The question is, does Danny want squad players? Or does he want a fourth striker every bit as good as Green, Akinde and Rhead? If it is the latter, he might have to be creative with the budget.

One thing is for sure, we do need another striker, even if it isn’t another big name such as the one we snared yesterday.

Of the players I've covered, which would you prefer to see at Sincil Bank?

  1. DC named Andrade as a forward in his recent interview, and Andrade said he wanted ot be up top. Shaw’s also on trial – so that potentially gives five already at the club. Are Lincoln actively looking for other options as well?

  2. Agree with you about Andrade Graeme. If Shaw’s trial is successful he could be the ‘unknown quantity.’ In as much as the opposition would not initially know much about him. An impact sub. He is local as we all know. Probably his wages would not be as high as the strikers mentioned above. After all we do not know how much of the transfer budget was used up to get big John Akinde. Danny likes a rough diamond from non league he can work with to polish up. I love it though plenty of if’s buts and maybe’s. We might pick up better clues when the squad is back next week.

  3. Again I agree I believe Andrade was a striker but could play out wide if called upon. I think shaw is a very good prospect and forward line is covered and we need couple of defenders and maybe midfield cover.
    I can’t wait for season to start and looking forward to Tuesday night to see how we line up I am not expecting them to be ‘on method ‘ but to see lots of promising players. Up the imps

    • A couple of defenders and midfield cover? Definitely!… Would like to see Michael Bostwick a permanent central defender. Another defensive midfielder I would particularly like to see brought in.

  4. I want to see an assessment of our youth squad fringe players to see who’s not to far away as far to many lads have been let go in the past who could fit in the squad. Matt Cotton has a great eye for goal full of energy loves the game not much cash would secure the lad.
