Vick Hall
GoodBye to Dom (Pre-Season Auction B)
Posted by Vick Hall on Friday, Aug. 19th, 2022 at 9:40 PM

Weston finally managed to offload first choice keeper Dominic Hall after a string of errors last season his position was no longer tenable. Although he performed well in his first regular season for the club with a save percentage rate of 88.9%. Last season he could be held responsible for both the club's relegation to the bottom flight and being kicked out of every cup competition. so manager Hall's nephew had to go. No despotism in our club for sure. In came stopgap keeper Devon Ruby and aprrentice keeper Ryan Cockayne who is being touted as the successor to club legend David Docherty. Ryan does have a poor reputation at his former club Bristol City but the same was true of Docherty who was floundering at Dave Dohm's Lewes. Former Weston keeper Bauer has been assigned to look after Cockayne and it will be interesting to see how his skills progress as an apprentice this season before he steps up to the big time. With 5 apprentices on the books Weston are hoping they might have a good youth cup run this year, whilst the team are overhauled and rebuilt.

Readers Comments

Not sure whether Bristol City fans will have worse memories from last year of Dom Hall's virtuoso performance in the Shield semis that ended our quest for glory, or Ryan Cockayne constantly picking the ball out of the back of his net during another dismal showing after a night out on the sauce. Hopefully his move out of the big city will allow him to rebuild his career.

bristol city fans might want to ask their manager why a schoolboy keeper was playing in the shield semis. It seems like they were not taking the trophy seriously?

I was referring to his other appearances Vick. Even I wouldn't play a SB GK in a semi final

I thought that title meant goodbye to Dave Dohm and you'd done a typo. Mighty relieved...

Goodbye to Inn.

No, LIndsay isn't retiring. A local motel shut its doors. All of them.

Judging by his save percentage, Cockayne is developing into a top player. Vick is clearly whatever the goalkeeping equivalent of a horse whisperer is...

Ryan's youmger brother, Charlie, plays for Forest. Keeping must run in the family as Charlie has played 3 games so far with a 100% save percentage.

Feel free to play him against me this weekend Steve...

Goodbye to the guy with the 30 year old photo. Oh sorry, Phil isn't retiring?
