Perch And Calderwood Reunited
After weeks of speculation about his future, James Perch has finally signed for Premier League new boys Newcastle United.
The NFFC official site says we've actually been paid a fee for the 24 year old utility player/scapegoat, but there's no mention of the actual amount. Speculation about the move has been doing the rounds for weeks, with £1m being the popular figure quoted.
Perch was a local lad and made over 200 appearances for the Reds. He played in just about every position for the team, but never really made one his own. Depending on who you ask about his abilities, you'll get a different response. There will probably be as many fans jumping for joy at his departure, as there are those that are saddened. Good luck for the future Perchio and say hello to Colin.
