Rainworth boss left frustrated
FRUSTRATED Rainworth MW manager Kevin Gee has expressed his disappointment after two loan deals for strikers broke down.
He thought he had secured deals to help end the four-match goal drought, only for the players to turn down the move.
"I agreed two deals with Premier Division clubs to take a striker on a loan deal for a month, only for the player to then turn down the chance to come and play for us," said Gee, ahead of hosting Romulus tomorrow.
"I think this is a real problem in the non-league game today."

Gee thinks there might be a bit of stigma when it comes to experienced players joining the club.
"I can't understand why, when given the opportunity to play football, players refuse it," he said.
"We all know it is a feeding frenzy in the summer months with players looking for the best deals for themselves.
"As managers, we know that if you've finished in the top-five goal-scoring charts the season before, you can write your own cheque.
"Surely it's about playing the game you love, and not about whether you've made the right move, and it certainly shouldn't be a sign of failure, especially if you've tried to better yourself.
"I find that a real shame when players at this level miss months and months of football. We all know that the strikers tend to be the top earners at a club.
"At the same time, clubs can't expect a Division One South club to match a Premier club's wages, since they are different levels. But to contribute towards their figures as a loan should be of benefit both clubs."
