10 November 2011 : Bulls Keeper Situation Descends Into Farce
Saturday's opponents Hereford United have suffered another twist in their goalkeeping crisis tonight, with news that their on loan goalkeeper David Cornell may now not be available for their FA Cup match. In what is a growing farce, the Swansea City Welsh Under-21 now looks likely to be on a plane to Armenia after their manager Brian Flynn demanded that he travel rather than be allowed to stay until Sunday.

Speaking to the Worcester News, Director of Football Gary Peters explained that he had got the green light from everyone, but had found that Flynn had pulled the plug on their chances of keeping Cornell for the First Round tie:

"Everyone, the Welsh FA, the English FA and the Wales (senior squad) manager Gary Speed, have said the lad can play for us. But Brian Flynn is saying no so, at the moment, we donít have a goalkeeper. Even Swansea City want him to play for us. We just donít have anyone. We have been trying all week to find someone ó it is unbelievable. The goalkeeping situation is crazy and it appears only one man, Brian Flynn, doesnít want him to play."

The Bulls believed they had received permission for Cornell, who is expected to only be a substitute keeper for their Tuesday night game in Armenia, to skip a walking holiday. However, those hopes have been dashed, and the Worcester press believe they have until 12.00 noon tomorrow to register a goalkeeper for Saturday's match.

Update: 9.30p.m. David Cornell himself has sent a message via Twitter tonight, contradicting what Peters has said above, stating: "On the way back to Hereford ready for Saturday! Nice two hour drive from Reading back! #tiredman" - Will this situation change before Saturday? At this rate, probably!
