    Erkifino


    Was anyone more relieved at seeing Erkifino arrive at the club other than The Gaffer? The Irish goalkeeper was a late but extremely welcome addition to the squad in order to provide competition for Goofy between the sticks.

    Initially signed on a one year contract, Erkifino will be earning 150 vCash per week with a clean sheet bonus of 30 vCash.

    Got the Tim Cahill-level of jumping - might come in handy for those pesky corners and crosses

    The Gaffer's Comments
    I have to admit that Erkifino has been one of two of the unluckiest players in our Vipers squad. The problem is, it could have all started so differently. Erkifino played only one game during pre-season but was in fact pencilled in to start our first competitive game only to go missing. That allowed Goofy to start in the 4-0 win over Southport but Erkifino did in fact make his first start in the following game in a 1-0 win against Woking and followed it up with another good performance in a 2-1 win over Grimsby. At that stage of the season, it looked as though we were blessed with two goalkeepers with great potential.

    Unfortunately, it all went wrong for Erkifino in his next game as he was sent off after just 9 minutes that led to our first defeat of the season with Woking beating us 2-0. He was given another chance in the next game but put in an even more horrific performance at Nuneaton that left him in a poor frame of mind before serving his three match ban. Goofy grabbed the gloves with both hands, meaning that Erkifino went 16 games before featuring again but after a clean sheet upon his return, he conceded four goals and lost his place once again. He then only played once in the final 23 games of the season, starting in a 2-2 draw against Chester.

    Naturally, Erkifino will be disappointed at his lack of games but his commitment to the cause has not been overlooked following 42 appearances at training. It is for that reason that he has earned bonus points from me and hopefully it will give him some encouragement ahead of a return to pre-season.

    Although Erkifino only started 7 matches for the Vipers in season one, he has elected to return and challenge for the goalkeepers spot once more. Competition is even fiercer this time around though due to the arrival of a new face.

    The Gaffer's Comments
    Erkifino had been frustrated by being the number two behind Goofy for most of last season. As a result, he had clearly worked hard during pre-season this year and did well enough to start the season as the Vipers' number one. He started the first six games of the season but after two subdued games in which he conceded three goals, he lost his place with Goofy taking over in the following five matches. However, Goofy ran into his own problems and lost his place back to Erkifino who had a chance to reclaim the gloves once more against Forest Green. What happened next was a first defeat of the season for the Vipers as Erkifino conceded three goals and sadly, he didn't get the chance to play again after Goofy grabbed his second chance with both hands and kept the gloves for the remainder of the season. To his credit, Erkifino continued to attend training for quite some time before getting disillusioned and failing to show up at all towards the end of the season.

    The Gaffer hopes that Erkifino returns to the club for next season and will understand if Erkifino wants to try his hand at first team football somewhere else in the starting eleven. But if Erkifino chooses to stay as a goalkeeper then he will of course have a clean slate in pre-season once again.

    Erkifino has been banned for one match after the red card against Barnsley in the FA Cup. It means that he will miss the Vipers' next game against AFC Wimbledon away.
