after the signings of danny hill and jim gannon windows are nearing full strength as they try to go one better than last season and win the GF.

in an unsual move however, the club have also revealed the name of their next target, they are hoping to sign Coronation Streets Jim McDonald when he is let out of prison

a source close to the club said earlier today, " yes its true, we are always on the lookout for old experienced heads who are being released and Belfast boy Jim fits the bill!!"
the reverand, big mac

Just cause you don't understand what's going on don't mean it don't make no sense
And just cause you don't like it, don't mean it ain't no good

Mr Gannon isn't quota but it's understandable why you made that mistake cos it's only 3 years he's been off it.

Don't know why Haven were talking about a player who came off the quota in 2004 due to residency having come over  here in 1999 as a quota player.what I do know is he wasn't a quota player for Hudds 2004-06.I've got a link that says that but don't know how to put it up.

Do you believe now or are you gonna still try to say he is quota. Maybe he'll go back on the quota just to please you. Anyway we must be over our cap limit now mustn't we. ;)

On the way that widnes are recruiting- they will stay up...........if they can sign 2 quality half-backs then I think they can challenge.

We've signed Ian Hardman on a season long loan deal.
We've also unveiled our new kit today.
