Alhagi Touray Sisay who they picked up from the Welsh league: https://www.accringtonstanley.co.uk/new ... gis-a-red/

Enock Lusiama was on trial for them this summer after playing for Darwen and Daisy Hill, they have given him a contract: https://www.accringtonstanley.co.uk/new ... cks-a-red/
It was the latter POTK!

Good to get someone through the door and I hope he makes an impact.

It has to be said, this level will still be a massive step up as he's only played North West Counties level as far as I can tell, so despite him coming from a L1 club we need to bear that in mind.

That is now 15 outfield + Tony Mac so at least we can fill a bench! Most other teams would still be looking to add three or four but we know that's not the case, so if we can get another one or two preferably before Saturday great, if we have to scrape through with 16 for one game and then add before the first home game then we will live.

Accrington must have a massive squad and hopefully a good scouting system.Good for the lad to experience a higher level [us] than he has been playing at. A months loan seems a stop gap for us to increase the squad Carberry and Hmami slotted straight in from a slightly lower level and IBR of course hope if he gets a game he can too .Did he play for Daisy Hill against us and if so did he impress ? Anyway welcome Enock and if you get on you wont lack support from the fans thats for sure . Just hope theres more news on transfers-loans by the end of the day.

I don't seem to remember him against us for Daisy Hill, but they didn't look like pushovers going forward so if he was in the team he didn't embarrass himself. So long as he hasn't got the attitude of their goalkeeping coach then we'll be alright with him 😂

Edit: It appears he wasn't in the squad that day according to Daisy Hill's twitter, so he was probably either injured or at Darwen.

Edit 2: For Darwen, he was a squad player and there's no evidence of him actually starting a game that I can find on Twitter, though I haven't trawled their website so happy to be proved wrong. Same for Daisy Hill. I hope we and Accrington saw something in him that they didn't!

He doesn’t sound like starting line-up material in a difficult game like this but, as you say, they must see something in him.

It hardly suggests thorough preparation for the Boston game (did Enock attend Thursday training?) but ‘it is what it is’ I suppose.

Good luck to the lad but totally inadequate, another pathetic cap in hand
to Coleman and yet another masterclass in how to remain insignificant.

I’m sure Liam will leave out the word ‘totally’ from his instructions to Enock in his team talk though! There’s pessimism and there’s deep pessimism. Never change, Portchat!

I mean if he was totally talentless Accrington wouldn't have signed him in the first place. It's only a 1 month loan and he may well surprise us. I for one hope he succeeds, it's not like we'll be paying them any weekly wages anyway I shouldn't imagine, just another body to have on the bench if he's required, until Tommy Lawson comes back with some random ex-Skem striker who scored 455 goals in all comps last season in the NPL Div 1 or something.

LW has said that he doesn’t sign loan players unless he intends to use them

We did sign those 2 Accrington youth players near the end of the season before last (I forget their names) and neither of them played at all I don't think, so I wouldn't be surprised if this was the same sort of transfer.

After todays showing I rest my case.....nothing changes ......

Early days but it’s worrying that this is our best team and we have nobody to bring in to ring changes.
