Manager expects quiet week

7 July 2014

Micky admits any more transfer business is unlikely

Micky Mellon says he does not foresee any more transfer activity at Shrewsbury Town this summer - instead preferring to give the current trialists a chance to impress.

Town have already signed 12 players ahead of the 2014/15 season and have a number of players on trial, all of who are fighting to be a part of the team for the upcoming Sky Bet League 2 campaign.

Micky said: "I think now we'll take stock and let the process iron itself out with the trialists, giving them the opportunity to try and fill the last holes in the squad. 

"They've been really impressive and they deserve the opportunity to try and keep impressing us.

"We're always talking about them and we'll be fair with them. When the time comes that we feel we have to make a decision we'll do that.

"We're only one week into what we're doing. We'll probably get them into the games and see how they get on, but the trialists have been superb. Hopefully they can carry that into the games and then we'll see what comes from that."

The manager is looking to build a competitive squad with options all over the pitch, and he has been impressed with the high standards he has seen in training so far.

"We want competition for places and a healthy group with bags of ambition and potential," said Micky. 

"It's one of the reasons why we were so keen to get Liam Lawrence in with that bit of experience to help that along.

"I've been absolutley delighted with the quality of lads that we have in the building. The tempo of the training sessions have been fantastic. 

"The way the lads have attacked everything has been brilliant, so I think we're in a good place at the minute."
