Boss keen to bring in more new faces

22 June 2014

Micky hopeful of new faces before the season kicks off

Micky Mellon is delighted with the quality of players he has been able to bring to Shrewsbury Town having taken his number of signings for the club to 10.

He hopes there will be further new arrivals to add further competition for places as Town work towards the start of the League Two season at AFC Wimbledon on August 9.

The manager said: "We're still speaking to other players and there's more that we want to bring in. We're close to being able to doing them as well so it's been an ongoing process.

"Me and Michael have worked very hard with the chairman and Matt to try and get the work done. Some of them have been ongoing for a little bit now and we're hopefully close now to being able to get the last few over the line."

Micky always knew recruitment was going to be vital considering the size of the Town squad he inherited.

He said: "When I came in I think I maybe had seven players so there was work to be done, everybody knew that, and I had to put a squad together so we had to work quickly but thoroughly and get the right types in.

"Nothing's been rushed and we had a plan for what type of player we wanted to bring in and we've thoroughly researched all the players backgrounds.

"Although you can't be 100 per cent on everybody, we've done all that we believe we have to do, and if we can get this last little group over the line as well then I'll be delighted with the work that we've done."
