Boss: "I'm always trying to reach for perfection"

6 August 2014

No easy task for Micky to find better players than he has got

Micky Mellon says he's always striving to make his Shrewsbury Town squad better, but admits it's no easy task to find players of a higher standard than the 16 newcomers he's brought to the club during a busy summer of recruitment.  

The manager is pleased with the quality of the squad he's put together at the Greenhous Meadow as the countdown continues to Saturday's opening League 2 game of the season at AFC Wimbledon.

But Micky revealed there's no danger of him resting on his laurels as he is always pushing to make his Shrewsbury squad as strong as it can possibly be.

He said: "When you're at a football club and you want to make it better and you want to make it grow, you've always got to be looking at either trying to make your own players better or recruiting better.

"The minute you take your eye off the ball and you think that you're done you will cause yourself problems because you're never done.

"You're always trying to make it better and always trying to reach for that perfection if you like and I'm probably no different to anybody else because I'm always trying to make my group better and I'm always having a look around to see if there's anybody better out there who can make the group better.

"But in terms of what I've got at the moment I'm delighted with what we've got and they will be pleased to hear probably that I'm struggling to find better.

"But that won't stop me keep looking and keep expecting them to get better because that's what you've got to do when you've got to develop a football club. You've got to keep grabbing and keep reaching to make them that little bit more successful."
