Gone but not forgotten:
Paul Wilkerson
Position: Goalkeeper
From: Youth team
Record: Played: 0 Scored: 0
To: Slough Town - free transfer - May 1996
Career stats: Soccerbase
He was: Erratic

Like the other reserve-teamers, I've seen Wilkerson a couple of times and he doesn't look ready for first-team action at all. Occasionally brilliant, he's simply not consistent or reliable - I've seen him pull off superb saves, then drop crosses at strikers' feet two minutes later. After shoving Simon Sheppard into the first team too early and watching him fall apart, we appear to have learnt our lessons - Wilkerson seems to be a good professional and I hope he makes it elsewhere (he's still young, especially for a goalkeeper, so there's plenty of time) but we need a decent reserve keeper, not an erratic novice.
