How to sign up a player

There's been some interesting talk on the other blogs, started by the excellent New York Addick, on how good Charlton is at playing the transfer market. Judging by the techniques adopted by Brakes manager Cadzy, Curbs should get down to Bluewater and stroll around:

Harvey World Travel Midland Alliance club Leamington have been steadily increasing their ranks since Christmas and a chance meeting in the town centre brought in another impressive recruit.

Manager Jason Cadden has added striker Jody McKay from Southern League Premier Division side Banbury United and central defender Andy Crabtree from Division One West outfit Bedworth United, and he has now signed James Husband following a chance meeting in Leamington.

The Brakes' boss revealed: "I was in the town centre when James approached me and asked if he could come training.

"James is currently at Warwick University and previously played for Airbus UK in the Vauxhall Masterfit Retailers Welsh Premier [I bet that's a mouth full in Welsh] and Tooting & Mitcham United in the Ryman League. He has also represented England at Futsal.

"He'd recognised me from a picture in the local paper and it was a real stroke of luck because James has fitted in really well."

For all that, I fear that Brakes are in for a bad defeat away tonight to Nationwide North outfit Moor Green in the Birmingham Senior Cup, even with Husband back from international duty against Finland.
