    In the spirit of the thread title and focussing on the 'rumour' aspect.

    A probably retiring ex international currently playing in Berkshire.
    Moving to a South Coast non national side was mentioned to me yesterday.

    There are a few players who have been through their junior years as England Internationals playing for Jon Bleby who I am convinced are still being kept tabs on by the seniors. They have had excellent coaching throughout their youth and I think will stamp themselves on the Prem over the next 10 years. James is definitely in that bunch.

    I heard that one a while back, seemed sensible.

    He's a part of the team that just won the Azlan Shah! Plus most players will play better in a better team, not to mention he was M1 at Surbiton before Uni...

    So RM to one of Havant, Trojans or Bournemouth? Haven't Havant just been promoted to NL? That'd make sense...

    Surbiton clearly didn't score enough goals this season...

    Spot on. And he's centralised now, too. So will be training with the likes of Middleton etc every day. Can only help him.

    Very unlikely to be Trojans. Havant not afraid to splash cash. Bournemouth likely destination, men's section on the up. RM would be a huge boost to help this.

    Given where I think he's based my money would be on Bournemouth if it's a non NL team

    If Winchester get wind that he's available wouldn't be surprised to see them make a move to 'sign' him. Anther club in the area moving forward trying to reach the promised land of the national league.

    Don't Winchester already have Rob Moore? Former team mates playing together again might sway it in their favour?

    Yep, Rob Moore is at Winch, or at least he was last season.

    As cryptic seems to be the order of the day:

    Our nearest opponents will be getting some big returnees allegedly...

    Whilst up here we patiently wait to find some international players who got an G grade in GCSE geography and think Sale is near London (which it sort of is 8 weeks out of 18) Maths grade unimportant, as there will be nothing to count.

    With the summer stuff underway in Nottingham the rumours and tapping up have begun in earnest it seems.

    Not for us, I'm just protecting what we have!

    Personally I am rather enjoying a break from players I have never heard of, with not particularly inspiring CVs, asking me to pay them unrealistic sums of money.

    On that basis I'm seeing it more as a delight to return to the promised land of regional Prem :rolleyes:

    Nearest 'rivals' are Bowdon but nearest opponents are Beeston... Martin & Dixon (and maybe Egerton) back to Beeston?
