Reach To Be Extended

8 November 2013

Adam set to stay until January and available for the FA Cup

Town manager Graham Turner has come to agreement with Middlesbrough to extend Adam Reach’s stay at the club until the start of January.

He has been in talks with Boro and caretaker manager Mark Venus and agreement was reached late yesterday which will also see Adam available to play for Town in the FA Cup.

GT has continued talks with Wolves over the week for permission for Liam McAlinden to play in the FA Cup but despite Liam wanting to take part in the Walsall game Wolves have refused to allow him to play.

The loan extension has been agreed with the clubs now waiting on confirmation of the paperwork.

“We are pleased that Middlesbrough gave permission for Adam Reach to be available for the FA Cup and that we’ve been able to extend his loan until the 1st of January, so that’s him and Nicky Wroe done until January," said Turner.

“Adam’s got plenty to offer. He’s very good at running with the ball, it’s one of his strengths, and often that can relieve pressure from your defence and he can score more goals, I’m sure of that. He works hard for the side, got a great attitude to work and he’s settled in from day one and contributed to our performances.

“Unfortunately, at the moment, we still can’t get anything positive from Wolves as they’re not allowing Liam McAlinden to play.

“The acquisition of another striker coming in has not materialised unfortunately. We were more or less getting it settled towards the start of the week, but I think it was the player himself who chose not to come out.”
