I would suggest that as we do not know 'what is on the managers table' right now, it is somewhat difficult to figure this one out. We are not privy to what has been offered and to whom, I guess only time will tell on this issue. Noting that many players are away on holidays right now and as contracts are up at the end of June - there could well be several deals just not yet finalised. Be interesting to see what develops by mid July it seems. Any advance on SIX new contracts to the squad.......the shape of things to come....

In recent seasons I reckon it's because we've not known which league we'd be in the following season. So we couldn't offer an attractive extension on something like FL terms if we were to end up being stuck in the National and, likewise, why would a player sign on National League terms if we then went and got promotion a few months later.

Of course that's why we end up with our top scorer leaving for nothing but what terms could we possibly have offered him in January to make him sign up then, especially if he was desperate to play in the FL? Just one of those things.

As for Norwood, the situation had crossed my mind too. Maybe there is an extension in the offing but, if not, and assuming he does adapt well to the FL, I'd hope we'd be looking to extend his deal before winter comes.

+1 Absolute necessity.

Finances pure and simple

It's not just financial, it's about the player's aspirations too. An extension has to be right for both parties, and the gamble cuts both ways.

Using Cookie as an example, even if we'd offered him the moon to sign an extension months ago, do you think he'd have signed it? The lad was desperate to play FL and probably knew he'd get offers in the summer so he was hardly going to tie himself down to possibly another year of non-league football.

Correct, extensions mid contract are rarely seen these days other than the top clubs who are not to worried about the finances and know they can always sell a top quality player without to much issue and the player knows ultimately they can leave and still get a massive financial package even when under contract

It takes two parties to agree to a contract.

What incentive is there for an established young/prime player to agree to an extension when they know they will be a free agent when it runs out? If they are good enough to be offered an extension, they are good enough to know they will have a few offers and could possibly get more money on the open market.

For very young (not yet established) or old (in decline) players the situation reverses. They would probably sign, but the clubs aren't going to offer them extensions in most cases.

Now in EFL2 .I still think we need to tie Norwood up for an extra year at least .Hope a weekly increase in wages is on the table and he signs .He is a TRFC hero and we need him !!

If Norwood isnt offered an extended deal, then dont be surprised if Walsall come sniffing around come January. Especially if they end up in a relegation dog fight and need goals to stay up.
