>Poor Old Kempson!

>Poor old Darran Kempson doesn’t sound like he’s having the happiest of times at Forest Green. They lost 3-1 at home to Altrincham on Saturday; he deflected in the first, was guilty of a howler to give away the second and was given a rating of four out of ten by the Non League Paper.


It must be something of a nightmare for him. He drops out of the Football League and must assume he’s going to be a big name in the Conference, he’s immediately picked for the first England C squad and has a strong start for us. Yet a couple of months later he’s suffered a massive downturn in form, had fans on his back (although his reaction might not have been the wisest) and clearly surplus to requirements, farmed out to a side plummeting down the table towards the Conference South.

You’d have to be particularly hard-hearted not to feel sympathy for the guy, and once again you just have to look closely at Brian Little’s decision-making. We had a huge hole in midfield in the Summer, having released Neil Roberts, Danny Williams and Mark Jones, then lost out on Paul Carden. However, Little decides to bring in a seventh centre back rather than plug that gap, saying when a player of Kempson’s calibre becomes available you just have to have him. Little’s impulse buying has done no favours to Wrexham or Kempson, and Little’s comment has a particularly ironic feel right now.

I've been commentating on football since the late 1980s, having previously been an entertainingly inept goalkeeper for Wrexham Schoolboys and, clearly in an era of national shortage, Wales Schoolboys.
