MAKIN HISTORY Defender Chris joins Saints

Veteran left-back Chris Makin has been released and has joined Championship side Southampton on a two year contract. With young Scott Golbourne also heading out on loan to Wycombe and Steve Coppell re-iterating his desire to add to our defensive options, the timing of this move a matter of days before the commencement of Premiership proceedings strikes Floyd on Football as a little odd. Makin played a bit-part role in the title winning campaign but was a steady, experienced head who would have been our only defender to have experienced top flight football. We can only assume Coppell and Hammond have a couple of shit-hot signings lined up otherwise our defensive cover is going to be weaker than a Tim Henman serve.
