Neal goes to Halifax to learn
He's not featured since and will now spend the rest of the season in the Nationwide Conference with Halifax, but goes with words of praise and encouragement from his manager John Sheridan.
Sheridan said: “I think going to Halifax will do Neal the world of good, and I've told him so. I think he has a chance of doing well in the game, but he has got a lot to learn.
“He's going there to learn the game, and it'll be tough for Neal as he'll be playing against men who'll get stuck into him. He's come from youth football, and I want him to grow up fast, the quicker the better, as I think he'll be here next season in my squad and in or around the first team.”
Trotman, who was captain of our youth team in the 2004/05 season that reached the semi-final of the Lancashire FA Youth Cup and the final of the Youth Alliance Cup, is expected to make his debut for Halifax against Gravesend & Northfleet this Saturday.
