Micky Mellon On Loans

19 January 2015

Manager on Caton, Wildig and Southern

"With 20 games to go now, we feel the more experience that we can bring with being involved in these situations the better, and Keith certainly has that," said Micky.

"He's a guy that I know very very well. I've played against Keith and have seen him play over the years. (Mike) Jackson has also played in the same team as him.

"We both know what type of guy we're getting into the group. He would fit in brilliantly with the lads that we've already got here because he's a good person as well.

"I'm really chuffed that we're getting a player like that into the group.

"He's a very combatitive midfield player, an organiser and a winner.

"He's been on this track before which is important and he'll be looking to get involved with the games here."

Micky also believes former Blackpool man Southern will add much-needed experience to his squad for the remainder of the 2014/15 campaign.

"We just felt that the opportunity for the lads to go out and play some first team football was what they needed at this time," said Micky.

"It's two good moves (for Caton and Wildig) to get match time under their belts.

"Caton just needs to go out and get some experience and go and play some mens football at really good, competitive level up at Southport.

"Aaron just needs to get going again.

"When they are first team players, they need to play first team games in order to get that extra bit of edge to their fitness.

"It's important that Aaron goes out and gets that again at another good club down at Kidderminster.

"I think Aaron would be the first to admit that he came back here and was a bit behind the rest of the group in fitness.

"He'll go down to Kidderminster and give himself the best possible chance of getting fit again."

And Micky believes all three loans will be beneficial for all of the players concerned.

However, there is one incoming for Town as experienced midfielder Keith Southern moves on loan to the Greenhous Meadow until the end of the season from the Cod Army.

Wildig has joined fellow Conference Premier side Kidderminster Harriers, also on an initial one-month loan.

Caton has joined Conference Premier side Southport, where goalkeeper Callum Burton is also currently on loan, for an inital one-month period and goes straight into their squad for the game against Braintree Town.

Manager Micky Mellon felt it was important for both James Caton and Aaron Wildig to go out on loan while bringing in Fleetwood Town's Keith Southern until the end of the season.
