Harris- twelve month ban by FA. Released from Chester when they went bust.
Fowler--Released by FGR after injury. Nomadic career including playing at lower levels
Speight--Released from Bradford. Previously jailed for Assault

Saunders also had a complete scatter gun approach. How many players did he get in on trial who never played for the club or who were utter s***e?
Doesn't cost anything bringing players in to have a look at. People say he used X amount of players..... How many have we used this season? Must be easily north of 30. Some brought in, not even good enough to make the squad.
His strike record for traillsits was very good. Can't think of any that we've had that have been a success since he left...... Let alone sold on for money or went on to play in the league.
