Clarets Mad welcome a new columnist

Last updated : 10 January 2002 By Tony Scholes

As is the case with Stan we have decided to look for youth and our latest capture is teenager Richard Oldroyd. Just like the other members of the team Richard is a Clarets supporter and becomes the sixth supporter alongside David Clark, Andy Robinson, Peter Heywood, Patrick Goss and myself to join the team.

Richard will be writing regular football articles in Oldroyd's Turf and starts this week with a look at whether we would benefit from a high profile signing.

Welcome Richard from the rest of the team.

Now who is the ex-Claret who has been sent to Coventry? If I mention that Coventry are set to start work soon on a new stadium then that should be a clue. It is of course Paul Fletcher and he was the subject of an excellent article in the Huddersfield Examiner this week. We have reproduced that and it can be found in our Ex Clarets section.
