Craig Rocastle. Just how bad was he! A player so devoid of ability, passion, commitment it was untrue. Truly one of the worst players ever to have disgraced Vale Park.

Not surprisingly he has done little football wise since having his contract cancelled by Lee Sinnott, apparently he had a spell playing in Greece, but it didn’t last and he was at Gresty Road over the summer for a trial, but not even Crewe were that desperate.

Rocastle is hoping to kick-start his career at Layer Road, Colchester are currently 4th in League 1. I really cannot see anything coming of this, but stranger things have happened… although I’m struggling to back that statement up with an appropriate example.

here for the story from Vital Colchester…

  • Last time I checked Rocastle was with Forest Green Rovers. Boothroyd has a history of signing the occasional random dire player though. A few years ago he took Albert Jarrett to then Premiership Watford. He didn’t last long there.
