Squad Next season

We could've left Jeacock on the bench and played Liam Armstrong. Instead we left an incredibly loyal and popular player to rot.

We’ve had four managers now who haven’t fancied Liam as number 1. I’m willing to bet there’s a weakness to part of his game that we as laymen aren’t able to see.

Maybe right but was Jeacock really any better? He barely played a game in between his two spells with us and as soon as he loan ended in January they bombed him out.

There was a big gap between Jeacock and Armstrong.  
I’ll be interested to see where Jeacock ends up: he obviously wasn’t perfect, but I’d say he’s definitely above Step 2 level.

Our opinions are irrelevant - and Jeacock wasn’t brought in just for us to help get him game time, he was brought it because someone felt he was better than what we had. 
And Liam initially joined us on loan! To get game time!

Liam didn't, he played in a friendly at Swindon Supermarine during pre-season after he'd been released by Bristol Rovers.

And Jeacock was prone to errors, he cost us at Scarborough and Chippenham. Yes he made saves too, but as Boris would say, he was just doing his job.

My mistake, but Armstrong had spent a season on loan at Tiverton prior to getting released.

Virtually all keepers make errors, let alone those at Step 2.

My point exactly. No difference between either, just because one is employed by a Championship club but they won't put him in their team. No difference between him and Liam.

Agreed, but any keeper is really only as good as the defenders in front of him and Zach got very little protection from our defence last season, particularly after BR-E got injured and off loaded.
