Micky Mellon On Signings

15 June 2015

Manager Looking For Right DNA In Squad

  • Micky says new signings want to better themselves
  • Sadler, Woods, Ogogo, Whalley and McKnight all come in
  • Town boss insists even he is still learning at 43
Manager Micky Mellon insists Shrewsbury Town will continue to look to bring 'the right type of people' to the Football Club.

"They’re good guys who have made mistakes. But that’s way in the past now and they’ve learned from that and in fact I think one recently, Shaun (Whalley), wasn’t even really involved in and probably got carried along with which has been reported on, so he’s been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"He’ll hopefully learn from that. We’re all learning all the time – I’m still learning at 43."

"I’m very, very careful to make sure that we bring the right type of people to the Football Club," said Micky.

"I would never ever bring someone along that I felt was going to show a bad example to the people of Shrewsbury.

"I want them to be proud of a team that’s representing them so I’m absolutely sure that we’re bringing in guys who may have made mistakes but all through that whole group there’ll be guys who have made mistakes but just probably have not been caught so it’s important we bare that in mind.

"I think everybody makes mistakes and people learn from mistakes and people make crazy decisions.

"I absolutely believe that they’re guys who want to get better as people and get better as players. There’s absolutely no doubt about that."

But Micky is adamant he would never bring people to the Club who would set a bad example.

The Town boss is fully aware that two of his summer signings have had their brush with the authorities in the past.
