It might sound bad, but if you’re a fan of his, it’s not time to give up just yet.

I mean, that’s the whole point of being a ‘free agent’, you’re free to play for any team that you want. That is the situation that surrounds Lee Camp right about now.

The club announced last night that Lee Camp is set to leave the club now that his contract is over. Camp leaves the club having made 86 appearances for the club since we signed him in the summer of 2018, keeping 20 clean sheets and a few penalties along the way, although it wasn’t totally smooth sailing throughout the time we was here.

I have said before that despite his, let’s just say, questionable form, he had earned the right to stay on another year as a backup, perhaps occasionally getting the odd cup game to rest the first-choice goalkeeper, or to fill in if they were injured/suspended.

I said that the goalkeeper position is set to go through a major overhaul this summer, and it looks as if it has already begun, and you can make the argument that our job has become harder as a result of getting rid of Camp.

Should Camp still be with the club next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It gives us an extra player that we need to go after this summer as not only do we need to go after a first-choice goalkeeper with Connal Trueman reportedly on the move, but we need to sign a backup goalkeeper as well on top of that.

Unless of course we go back for Camp in the near future as I hinted at earlier, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that personally.

What about you? Do you think that we should try and bring Camp back?
