Squad details update

Earlier in the week Fulham officially announced the details of all the players that had joined or departed the club. A couple of interesting additons to the information we already knew. Mark Pembridge has taken up a role as a Fulham Academy Coach. Pembo was a decent player for us before his last injury, and a key player in the defeats of Man United at Old Trafford in 2003 and the blue poo at the Cottage in 2006, he played 46 (+8) times for the club and scored two goals.

Also Ahmed Elrich and Chris James have both been released by the club. I don't think many people will even notice that Elrich has gone, his appearances were rarer than the Loch Ness Monster's and he showed less impressive ball control than Nessy (who I belive once played centre forward for Inverness Caledonian!). Chris James was a really promising young midfielder, who has left due to the lack of first team opportunities at Fulham. He has been on trial with a number of clubs since leaving us (currently Leyton Orient) but has yet to be picked up. I'm sure he'll find somewhere soon though and wish him well for the future.

I've updated my spreadsheet which you can view here or from the side menu bar under "Hammy End Features".
