GT: "You've got to be selective"

19 July 2013

Gaffer looking to add right characters to the squad

Graham Turner says he is continuing to be selective when it comes to bringing in new players to strengthen his Shrewsbury Town squad.
GT has so far made four additions over the summer having signed defensive trio Alex McQuade, Dave Winfield and Tamika Mkandawire.
And last weekend he swooped to bring in striker Akwasi Asante on loan from Birmingham City. 
"I could sign a couple of players tomorrow and then regret it in a month's time," said the manager. "I think it's worth waiting for the right ones and working towards the quality that we need to establish ourselves as a first division club.
"There's stacks of players out there. Would anybody feel easier if I went out and signed a couple that proved not to be good enough in the long run? 
"I think most clubs are cutting down on the size of their squads. We'll be no different so you've got to be very selective.
"The first thing we check on now is character. We've got to make sure that anybody we bring into the club is of the right character as well as having the right ability.
"That selection process will go on."
