Leam Richardson: Gives Andrew Dawber the chance to impress

The 18-year-old youth-team graduate made his Stanley debut against Morecambe in this season's Johnstone's Paint Trophy and has committed his future to the club until the summer of 2015.

"I'm very pleased to sign to be honest," said Dawber in a club statement. "I was excited as soon as the boss (Leam Richardson) mentioned it to me so I'm just glad that it's gone through now and I can look forward to the football.

"It's a real vote of confidence to be given this contract and I'd like to thank the gaffer and everyone on the staff who has contributed towards it.

"I'm really happy to be staying here, I really like all the lads and I'm really pleased that everything is done.

"It's quite important to know that I can purely concentrate on the football and not have to worry about new deals in the summer.

"There are lads out there who don't have a contract and don't know their future so obviously I'm very happy to have that bit of security."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
