Barcham Departs For Dons

Last updated : 01 July 2015 By Jim Bonner

Andy Barcham has had his contract cancelled by Potsmouth and he has now signed a contract of undisclosed length with AFC Wimbledon.

The 28-year-old could be considered to be the League Two version of John Utaka from a Pompey fans' perspective. His early performances for the club were certainly impressive but it wasn't long before his game was dogged by inconsistency and then the injury problems came along and therefore we never saw the best of him.

If Neal Ardley can get the former Scunthorpe winger back to his best like he plans to then he will have an excellent player in his side but no gambling Pompey fan is going to put money on him ever returning to his former self and they certainly won't miss him now he has gone.

In other news, Paul Cook has moved quickly to rubbish rumours about Matt Tubbs joining Barcham back at Wimbledon and claims that he will be able to fit into his 4-2-3-1 formation as a lone striker. Eoin Doyle is a similar player to Tubbs and despite doubts, he banged in 25 goals for Chesterfield before moving to Cardiff last season and that's what Cook bases his thinking on.

However, he admits he is still in the market for another striker and a right back as he looks to complete his squad.
