Aspin was delighted to have brought in a new striker to beat the pre-season rush, it was revealed last night.

The striker in question's career is yet unknown, but rumours are he has not always played up front.

Unfortunately, when we tried to ask for Aspin's word for last night's match at home to Mickleover he had done a runner, but the striker in question was more than happy to reveal himself:
"This has been a boyhood dream for me. To be playing first-team for a semi-professional side is all I ever hoped for.

"What's more, it was in front of 427 roaring, enlivened Shaymen. They're noted for their crowds, tonight beating both playoff semi-finals at the Giant Axe and the Tameside, and they were hungry for the game. Walking out in front of all of them was a fantastic feeling!

"Sadly, the lads weren't as much as me. Towards the game it seemed like they were throwing it away!"

The Shaymen conceded two goals either side of half-time, which meant they had to catch up. They managed this, and the score was level 2-2 at ninety minutes. Being a cup game, it went straight to penalties, and the fledgling young striker was the only one of them who managed to find the back of the net, though it was too little too late, as Mickleover walked the shoot-out 3–1.

"I've been getting on fairly well with the lads, but I was gutted that they didn't want to take this seriously. All that was on their minds was Magaluf! In fact, excluding me, the striker, the only two other players to step up to the penalty spot were two defenders and a goalie."

Meanwhile, Aspin has been looking at the match highlights, and is impressed with what he saw.
"Looking at our situation, with Lee Gregory going back to the full-time game in Mansfield and Mike Wilde returning to the Cod Army, we needed a fresh set of legs up front. An uneasy start aside, our new signing delivered, and scored two goals in the process."

The signing came on on the 20th injured as James Dean limped off. This publication's advice: watch your place in the squad, Deano!
