Hmmm - 28 and last season was his first season as a No. 1 and only has a handful of apperances above League 2 level. Doesn't mean he's not a good keeper and would come here happy to challenge for the starting spot rather than going straight in but feels like a Walker Mk 2.

Can only assume, if true, this means that the coaching staff really do not rate the young keepers on our books.

We’ve created a gap in our keeping and it would be asking too much to expect Andrésson and CDC to step,up this season. I think there may be concerns about another young keeper we have and therefore we’re looking for an older, inexpensive option .
How old was Marcus when we signed him ? Very little first team experience and about to quit the game. Keepers do just develop later in some cases

It's an area where we can definitely do better. The question is whether this guy is actually better than what we have. Some keepers develop late, but a career in League 2 at 28 does not inspire confidence.

We've been making a mess if the keeping department for years now so this wouldn't surprise me.

Northampton fans on their forum surprised by the link.

think its just paper talk. We seem to have decided we have a keeper crisis based on one game

Virginia will start (and I expect do quite well) and Walker is a capable back up (though not one I'd want to play a lot of games)

If JV has a poor start to the season, we send him back and get another loan in Jan

I don't think we have a crisis but if we can have a 3rd senior keeper that would feel like the right number. It only takes Virginia to get a knock and we are left with Walker and then probably Andressen and CBC - (if Southwood is still here he is certainly not favoured). Don't want to block their paths but are they at a stage they are ready yet.

but what do you do with that 3rd keeper when JV and Walker are fit?

It does seem that Jokull and CBC have jumped right above Driscoll, Southwood, Ward in the queue and will be keeping regularly in the U23, so should be expected to be able to step up if needed.

Expect this is agent talk, but fwiw Northampton fans rate him very highly.

Thanks, but was well aware of both. The two youngsters were promoted over the pair of them hence whilst they were able to leave

Is Desbois still about? Can’t remember if he moved on

Apparently Southwood is off on loan to Scotland

A bang average League 2 keeper with one season under his belt? Not good enough. I've heard Birmingham have 5 keepers on the books - let's just get Tomasz Kuszczak in and stop messing about
