Would imagine his agent is currently pimping him out to Serie A Clubs

I hope we see him play again for Woking.

Whilst he got decent reports from Farnborough, that’s quite a few levels below where we’ll be playing next season. I’d love it if he signs on and becomes a success, but I often felt that people were watching a different player to me in some games. An excellent impact sub against tired legs, but looked a long way short when starting a handful of times. Movement and delivery needed a lot of work.

Quite often too quick for his own good as well. Seemed to leave the ball behind a few times.

Agree with that. However, I would still want him to resign and spend next year in the South and see how ready he is after that.

Like CHC, that may stop him signing on again.

Exactly the sort of wide player we are currently light on so would certainly welcome him back if he fails to get a deal elsewhere

If he couldn't get in the team in the National South, he's not going to in the National Prem. Pace is obviously a danger and I really rate his dribbling, but I also thought that his defensive work rate, decision-making, and arguably his crossing all looked a bit raw. Taking the piss out of part-time right backs when you're brought on in the 75th minute is one thing, but trying to penetrate a well-drilled full-time defence is another.

As others have said, I think a loan into the National South would be best. No idea if he's got the patience or inclination for that, and might look to a full-time club that could offer him that move anyway to aid his development.

I'd rather have Hodges as the tricky impact sub option - for me, a lot of hype around Reggie, over a handful of cameo's against part-time players at levels way below those needed on a regular basis this coming season. Why would we sign him only to then loan out to NLS? File under not suitable for this years challenge and let him find a deal elsewhere.

I really hope he resigns. He's very young and clearly needs to develop some aspects of his game, but he has bags of potential. I'd love to see us give him a good go in the side.
If we don't people opportunities to shine and progress then they never will. Some will work, others won't. I think Reggie would be a huge asset.

things like work-rate and decision making can all come with experience. Pace and dribbling don't come cheap. He's got those 2 in abundance.

Get him in Dowse!

no place for sentiment in the National, probably no space in the squad or the budget. Hope he does well.

Was going to comment similar! Dowse mentioned a number of times in updates about agents asking for money for players. The last person who Dowse called out for agents being involved was Reggie too...

Some highlights of him last season he looked very good, saw him in the final game at Weymouth and he was anonymous. Loads of promise and lets hope other clubs don't benifit. Give him a game in our pre season games to see if that potential can be a help to us this season.

This issue aside if possible; I would have thought we would have been keener to keep our younger players onboard for longer even if they didn't tear the league up in their brief spells in the first team to date. Some of those that came in and played in positions ahead of CHC and RY last season were bloody woeful.

Agree with this - he just looked like a worse version of Hodges to me. And even Hodges won’t be getting that much game time this season I imagine.

He spent most of last season on loan, despite doing little wrong, including during our poor patch when we sold Loza and Edser left.

I doubt he'd be massively interested in re-signing to be honest.

Everyone’s quick to say he wasn’t good enough, but he was only given a few chances to start, considering it was his first season of men’s football! Can’t understand why people aren’t bothered if the young academy players stay or not, our academy is constantly producing very talented players. Joe Mac, Charlie Carter, Lazar- all now playing at football league clubs. With the likes of Skinner coming through as well I think the academy players should be given more of a chance. Especially when we then get loan players in, to play in their positions, who are complete dogshite.

I agree with the above about the quality of the academy, but we got promoted last season without Reggie, I feel he made a bit error of judgement when he got an agent involved last season.

I agree the agent really wasn’t necessary and started him off on the wrong foot with Dowse. I still don’t really understand why you would bring in wingers (post Loza) who were all crap when you have Reggie playing somewhere else, being in form scoring goals and getting MOTM quite regularly. Understandably in a lower league but form would have helped him.

I imagine we didn't sign them expecting them to be "crap".

Surely when, with 7-8 games to go, we had a choice of:

1) a winger who had played 70odd games in the National League in the last 3 seasons
2) an unproven winger who had been playing in the Southern League most of the season

Anyone would choose Cadogan over Reggie.

Looks like Reggie was offered a contract but decided to go elsewhere. It’ll be interesting to see where he ends up in the end.
