Leo Smith
 
Thought it was worth a mention, Leo has been in superb form this season for Caernarfon, and is being looked at by a number of clubs. I've heard that Port Vale are now looking at him so could end up in the football league before too long. Another mistake by us maybe?

Keates was the one who would not give him an opportunity.

Not really. Good to hear he is in good form, but there is no guarantee he will make it even if a move comes off, it's never an exact science. Most lower league players and many top players have failed, gone backwards or been released at some point just the way it is. Players develop at different rates and it's sometimes it's about getting the breaks and maybe if Leo had gone out on loan at a younger age he may have come on quicker.

I'm not sure it was seeing as development isn't really our thing anymore.

Pleased for him and nice too see Caernarfon are doing well, cracking result last weekend.

His contract expires in 2039, but he has the Grant clause in it whereby he can extend it for another 50 years and also have the right to behave unprofessionally whenever he wants.

Has the same agent as Matty Done then?

Re: Leo Smith
 
I always thought Leo looked a decent prospect, him and tharme as well as matty sergeant. What do we do with our kids... I know its hard to get your shot in the game but seems like a while since we produced a decent young player who got their opportunity.

Bit like the way we seem to coach the ability out of our strikers too.

That said i always thought Declan (walker??) was a cracking player as well as tomassen... Maybe i know nothing
