Micky Mellon back at his desk to continue the rebuilding
Micky Mellon is back from his holiday and back at this Greenhous Meadow desk hard at work with the Town rebuild.
He has been away with his family for a couple of weeks but the work didn’t stop with James Collins, Mark Halstead and James Wesolowski all agreeing deals to join Town while he was in Thailand.
The gaffer is pleased that the early hard work put in by people at the club is starting to pay dividends:”I’m delighted to be back but we’ve all been working hard while I’ve been away with Jacko, Matt, the chairman and myself speaking constantly.
“We had done a lot of work before I went away with highlighting of possible targets and then meeting players.
“The main thing is to get the right type of person here who shares our vision for the football club.”
The reaction from the Town faithful to the new signings has been very positive with the fans being impressed with the quality of the new faces:”I want them to be impressed with the quality as when I first came in I promised them a team that they could be proud of and one that represented them properly.
“I’ll continue to try and get that right and to continue to bring in player who will play a brand of football which will excite them and let them enjoy their Saturday afternoons and Tuesday nights.”
Micky has met with possible targets today and will continue to over the rest of the week. His approach has always been to get the right type of player in and ones that fit his vision for the future of the club:”We’ve met one or two players this morning and have more lined up to talk to over the week.
“I really like to do my home work on the player and want to get to know them and it’s important that they get to know me.
“I know how good a football club this is and when they come on board I want them to appreciate that. The facilities and the coaching will give them the opportunities to continue to improve.”
