Davide Somma

Chesterfield 2-3 Crewe Alexandra (01.12.09)

Davide Somma got his first taste of League Two football playing 57 minutes for Chesterfield before being substituted. Somma could have made the dream debut for the club when given the chance to get his name on the scoresheet from the penalty spot after just 8 minutes, but his “weak penalty” (according to Sky Sports) was saved by the Crewe goalkeeper. Missing penalties? He’ll fit right in at Leeds then!

Chesterfield went on to fall 2-0 down, missing another penalty in the process, before pulling one back late on. Crewe scored again though to make the match 3-1 and Lester’s 89th minute strike proved to be nothing more than a consolation goal.

Despite failing to get on the scoresheet, Somma will go in to the Chesterfield history books as the 1,000th player to appear for them in the League.

Andrew Milne

Notts County 4-0 Darlington (01.12.09)

Milne wasn’t even named amongst the substitutes for this match as Darlington were thoroughly destroyed by a rampant Notts County. Darlington were 3-0 down after just 17 minutes, so quite obviously some serious defensive problems there. Funny how they seem to follow Steve Staunton about, isn’t it!?

I’m guessing Milne will be happy to have played no part in this match, but I hope his transfer doesn’t prove pointless and he gets some time on the pitch. You’d think Steve Staunton would know enough about Milne (having coached him) to know what he’s getting, so I doubt he’d have signed him for no reason?

Alan Sheehan

Wrexham 0-1 Swindon Town (29.11.09)

Wasn’t going to bother with Alan Sheehan as he’s probably on his way out and it’s the younger players development I’m more interested in, but I heard the Wrexham fans booed him off the pitch when he was substituted during this FA Cup clash last Saturday. With a booking to his name and the most fouls of any player on either side, that’s possibly why. Doubt I’ll be focusing on him too much in the future.
