As forecast Sean St Ledger, the PNE and Irish international defender, has left for Middlesbrough. The LEP is reporting a fee of £4.5m expected in January. As usual mixed feelings about losing a good player and getting a good fee. The Premier League is littered with ex-PNE players although PNE keep up the good performances.
I often think there is a risk about a loan. What if he doesn’t get on or found not to be worth that much? Then again he’s OK here, so PNE get their better player back.
We need to tell ourselves there are about 60 Coca-Cola league clubs out of 68 who’d swap places with PNE anyday.
