Do Go Chasing Waterfall

So we’ve signed a centre back, “the immovable water feature” as he’ll be known from now on. Obviously we all need to reserve judgement until he’s settled in, but my recollection of his performance against us for Gainsborough Trinity in the FA Trophy semi-final is positive and he’s certainly the right sort of signing for our current situation.
