Bits and pieces

Saturday, 14 August 2010

Amidst all the sadness, life goes on, as the same can be said for Exeter City, even if we're still in mourning.

First off, Exeter have been drawn against Yeovil in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, to be played at the end of the month. This should be a great atmosphere for a midweek cup tie and a great opportunity to celebrate Adam Stansfield's life between two of his former clubs.

Secondly, young forward James Norwood has gone on loan to Forest Green Rovers. It's exactly the type of move he needs and it'll be interesting to see how he gets on there.

Although our number 31 is still young, this is a bit of a key season for him. Tisdale is quite fond of blooding young players on loan and this will be young James second loan, after spending much of last season at Sutton.

Forest Green is exactly the type of club Norwood needs to be playing for right now. The standard will be decent and they're expected to struggle, so a spell near Stroud will be character building.

I saw James play last season for Sutton and wasn't overly impressed, and I've heard mixed reports pre-season. At some point he needs to convert youthful promise into a definite product. He's probably got this season and maybe next before Tis decides to move him on.

Hopefully, for his sake, he can impress on loan. He's got a lot of players to displace in the pecking order but netting a few at Rovers is a good way to remind us he's still here.
