GIJSBERT BOS: The 25-year-old, 6ft 4in Dutch striker was originally bought in 1995 by Lincoln from Dutch side Ijsselmeervogels. He found his true level when loaned to non-League Gateshead, scoring eight times in 10 games, but went back to Sincil Bank. After six goals in 36 games - including the winner in a Coca-Cola Cup tie at Manchester City, easily his career highlight - he joined Rotherham for pounds 20,000 last season, not an altogether smooth move. Following a substitution, he threw his shirt at his manager, Ronnie Moore, who banished him to the dressing-room and later to Walsall on loan. Only injury prevented his downward career spiral to the non-League. Still transfer-listed. Played once this season. He failed to score.
