Is Penney out of contract in the summer? 
 

Can he be recalled in January?

 

He needs an extension because if he is out of contract then he may just be staying in Germany full time with a pre contract agreement in January. 

He is. But has stated he wants to come back and continue with the Owls.

I do think well asses the situation when he comes back and if mnk feels he's ready for first team offer the lad a new contract. 

It will then depend on where he wants to be playing his football next year. 

Can we swap him with Fox?

Have to keep a rein on the asides though, in case an over-zealous mod drags the whole thread kickin 'n screamin down to the non SWFC section

Yes, you know who you are  :mellow:

 

I had to edit the post about SV Wehen for that reason - and then regretted it

 

But sod it

Did you know ....

SV Wehen were actually disbanded by the Nazi Party in the early 30s?

It's true, apparently

I don't know if that's a rare distinction, or not

But at least we now know where SAG get their inspiration from  :biggrin:

Fingers crossed next season we will. 

For now though I think he's shown, he's not quite physically ready for the championship.

  I know  few on here rate him and fox may be no world beater, but is solid enough when just expected to defend with the odd forays forward in support of his winger. 

 

Would love to see penney come back and next season, establish himself and become our new left sided "Mel Sterland"

Kirby in the Macclesfield starting 11 again against Port Vale.

12th October

Macclesfield  2-1  Port Vale            (att:  3,467)

Understatement to say this is a welcome 3pts for Connor Kirby & co

Macc's first league win in eight, and only their second win in eleven (all competitions)

They had to work for it too - going behind and levelling things up before half time

They were good value for their lead but were clinging on a bit towards the end

Connor played the whole game

 

Despite such a lousy run, the win moves them above Vale on goal difference and up to 12th

Gainsborough  0-2  Atherton Colliery

No sign of Ciaran Brennan for this one, which suggests either

a) he's out injured - possible, he was subbed early last time out

b) his youth loan period has expired - also possible but he's only been there three weeks or so. I think it's more likely

c) he's away with the Rep of Ireland U19s who have a friendly v Denmark on Monday

If that's the case then Conor Grant has probably joined him, but as there's been no official word ....

 

Anyroad, looks like Trinity could've done with him

They went behind to a 1st half penalty

Then Atherton missed another penalty

Then Trinity missed one of their own before the visitors wrapped things up late on

Conor Grant is with the Rep Ireland u19s, Ciaran Brennan isn't

I was just typing that if Grant isn’t good enough for the Ireland u19 I would eat my hat, fortunately it can stay on my head now.  He’s a top player

Heard it confirmed earlier that Ciaran Brennan is out through injury

I'd imagine he's receiving treatment back at S6

Whether he'll return to Gainsborough when fit again is anyone's guess

But it seems only fair to keep one eye on their progress just in case ...

 

15th October

Gainsborough  0-0  Buxton

 

Buxton sit bottom of the league and got beat 7-0 last time out

They won 7-0 the time before that

So I reckon this one had 0-0 written all over it  :dry:

Okay, so that takes care of c)   :biggrin:

Not sure if he is too old for the Ireland U19s from this season as he is a year in front of Grant.  Brennan 2nd year pro whilst Grant is a first.

I'm not too sure how these things work either

But I do know Ciaran was in their U19 squad (with Conor Grant) in pre-season and won his first cap v Portugal on 24th July

He's also named in their current squad for this year's UEFA U19 Championship - if uk.soccerway can be relied upon

 

But as he's missed the last couple of Gainsborough games through injury that might explain why he was overlooked for last week's

friendlies v Denmark

The Irish lads are back in competition with three games next month, so let's see if he gets the call for those

Sad thing is that at European Championship's that ROI played this summer Grant didn't get to play much. He got twice off the bench in what were no more but token appearances. In his favorite left wing/left midfield spot he was in packing order behind Southampton left-back and Brighton's 16 years old left winger. If 12 players didn't pulled out of Irish squad, there is no way that he would have been picked into the squad.

 

On a positive note he got 70 minutes in 2:0 defeat to Denmark, and going by what I heard was arguably Irish best player.
