Micky On Clarke Carlisle Reports

5 February 2015

Manager Offers Support On Behalf Of Club

"I'd love to keep players involved as much as possible," said Micky.

"The doors at this football club will always be open to any footballer who wants to come in, perhaps for a chat or maybe we could get them doing a bit of scouting, or anything we could do to keep them involved in some way."

Micky also insists that the door is very much open for any past players to become involved with Shrewsbury Town Football Club once again.

"I don't think that a lot of people know about the work that Clarke does behind the scenes, and I can only speak for myself in the amount of players that I have sent to Clarke," said Micky.

"He's been there for them, all of the time. I feel emotional about it because he is such a good guy.

"Now it's our time to support him. It's sad and it's tough for footballers when they finish (playing).

"Now and again it might not do any harm for people like myself to get around these people and give them a phone call and get involved because it's tough.

"Clarke has helped so many people, so many that you could probably fill the (Greenhous Meadow) stadium with the work that guy's done.

"It's important now that we all show support for Clarke and make sure that he knows that we need him back as soon as possible because without him, I could tell your five or six players who might not even be here today, never mind getting better."

The Town boss insists Clarke has been there for players he has worked with in his management career.

Micky knows Clarke from his time at Blackpool, where the pair both played professional football, and has been saddened by reports of Clarke's attempted suicide recently.

Manager Micky Mellon has offered support for former PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle on behalf of everyone at Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
