Jordan White scored 7 in 24 and many of those games he was just trying to get match fit after being out for ages. Deserved a 2nd season.

I remember him scoring an absolute beauty with his head against Maidstone. He also kicked one in at close range v York. However the rest were all forced over the line or bundled in.

I like my strikers to be able to shoot, but perhaps 7 in 24 is fine however they are scored.

[QUOTE=cynprifathro;2350410]Krux: Jordan White has scored nine goals for Inverness Caley in Scottish Championship this season. Good call Lods re - Elliot Durrell! Martin Riley was rightly let go as he was too much of a liability with injuries, just like Keates was, in the latter stages of his own playing career![/QUOTE]

Nine in Scotland is not enough to convince me, though we can only dream of a striker hitting such a tally!

He probably had his best game for Wrexham filling in at centre half.

Just starting to get some decent form at the end of the season where he scored at York but the damage was done with too many games just passing him by probably due to his long term illness - the problem with football is it doesn't stand still and managers can't afford to hang hopes on the likes of Jordan White in the hope that over passage of time he will come good.

He is one of those players that we could ask 'what if.....?
He showed promise and might have come good but how many times have we heard that before ?

Fans forget if Carlos had been given a contract of 12 months he would have been released because he was not up to the standard required,the next couple of seasons he was a pleasure to watch.

You could say the same with Dennis Lawrence. Abject when he first started but went on to be a great centre half.

Still maintain when Lawrence left us that was the moment the club demise on the pitch started. Think the next two games we got battered 5-0

Michael Ingham, yes he had lost his place to Antony Williams and he didnt go on to better things, but he still played another 300 odd games after leaving us and by all accounts he was a solid stopper

Lee McEvily - fell down the pecking order but i thought he was alright

Mike Williams - received a lot of criticism during his latter years with us, but was a dependable player. Ashton probably forced him out of the club though

Gareth Evans - Doug Tharme should probably read his wikipedia page

Jamie Reed - probably would have done alright for us in non league if we had stuck by him, but instead we stuck by the wonderkid Obi Anoruo instead... and that worked out alright

Danny Sonner - oh what he could have done in the conference under a bit less pressure

Mansour Assoumani - rejected a new contract but definitely up there with one of my favourite players in our non league era

Nat Brown - what happened there?! obviously a good defender, but we then farmed him out on a season long loan to Macc and then he left - homesick?
