Fear Cod Army In BSP Next Year.

Last updated : 28 May 2011 By Neil Hobbs


Fleetwood Town, not the Towns of Grimsby, Luton or Mansfield, will follow Crawley Town’s example if signings from Celtic, York and even Crawley are anything to go by. Chief Executive Steve Curwood and Andy Pilley have also forked out for a fabulous new stand and under soil heating at ambitiously named Highbury. But  Blue Square Bet Premier fans can fork out substantially less if they fancy a safe punt on the Conference crown.



Although money does not guarantee happiness quality does as Steve Evans proved last year. The place oozes ambition on and off the field and is well placed for any out of favour North-West stars in need of an instant shop window fix to their careers.


Thus hot on the heals of playoff hurt in their first season in the BSP, the Cod army are already splashing the cash with the 5 figure loan signing of Crawley striker Richard Brodie and ex Kidderminster midfielder and skipper Keith Briggs. Celtic’s Matthew Hughes will join next week. Exciting York winger Peter Till will also sign a two year deal imminently.



Fleetwood are a professionally run club from top to bottom with the momentum of a meteoric but steady rise up the League. Benevolent backer Andy Pilley turned down the chance to take a chunk of Blackpool last season, preferring instead to continue with a magnificent mission.



All sentiment aside Imps these will win it, Luton Town, Mansfield Grimsby Town, Newport,  York and any other hopefuls are playing for a playoff spot this season.
