Does anyone know if Dale Belford is still registered as a player this season, or if he has finally hung up his boots to concentrate on managing the side.
As I'm sure all you stattos will know, last season he did have a squad number and made the subs bench 4 times in the league and 3 times in the FA Cup.
If he has finally retired or is no longer registered, at the age of 47, then that in my book is quite big news - mainly because he is one of the oldest footballers still playing at this level - at Conference level or above, only Kevin Poole at Burton Albion is older I think (squad number 13 this season, in case any of you don't believe me that he is still playing at 51 years old!!).
Anyway if any of you out there have a definite answer on whether Dale is still playing or retired (no guesses please cos I can do that), then I'd be interested to hear what the situation is.

Thankyou Dave,

Although not listed in the squad, I wonder with there being no retirement announcement that I have heard of, if that means that when one of the other keepers gets injured, he will register to play, and so keep his incredibly lengthy playing career going. Looks like it might be a case of wait and see, anyway.
