And the winner is…

A big thanks to those of you who sent captions in for my debut competition to win tickets to The Approach to see ‘An Evening with Larry Lloyd and John Robertson.’  It was a close call, but after going through ’em I’m pleased to report that Chris came up with the caption on the picture enclosed, which amused me most.

For those of you that missed out, you don’t have to miss out on the evening itself – for a very reasonable £12.50 you can still order tickets directly from the venue.  See full details for the night by clicking here – my past experience of these evenings at The Approach would suggest that it will be a top evening’s entertainment!

Also a big thank you to Dave at The Approach for offering me the tickets to put up as a prize for the competition.

Forest sign Brett Ormerod!

Here’s a shocker, and a pleasant one – we’ve signed Brett Ormerod on loan for the remainder of the season from Preston North End.  He’s been handed the number 18 shirt, and looks likely to be involved immediately against Crewe Alexandra tomorrow.

He’s 31 years old, and has found himself on the fringes at Preson, making just nine starts this season, and eleven appearances as a substitute – during this run in the side he’s picked up only one goal.  His career started at Blackpool, where he scored 62 goals in 124 starts before moving to Southampton.  He’s had a rough time on the injury front lately, which are thought to have limited his opportunity at Deepdale.

So welcome on board Brett – certainly we’ve all expressed concern over our lack of striker cover – and given Will Hoskins’ continued struggle with his back injury, the need for additional cover was all too clear.  Sure, Brett isn’t going to solve all our problems, but it will give us another dimension up front – so it’s nice to have some nice news to report for a change!
