Micky Mellon On Wallace Loan Signing

12 January 2016

Manager Believes Midfielder Will Bring Legs To Side

"We've said all along that we wanted to try and add some legs to the midfield along with terrific League One quality - and James certainly has that in abundance," said Micky.

"He's a lad I've been very aware of over the years, and when the opportunity came we believed we could get him in.

"He fitted the mould of what we want in order to give ourselves a chance of winning games in this league.

"He's had some great experience at Tranmere (Rovers) and Sheffield United and he's a lad that's hungry to come here and do well.

"He's desperate to get going and I think it's a fantastic acquisition for the football club.

"He'll be great in and around the place and he's a lad with great ability.

"He's trained on Tuesday morning and looks in great shape along with the other lads.

"I felt that we've been outrun too many times in midfield in too many games and we needed to bring in people who could match opponents in that area of the pitch."

And Micky believes the former Everton youngster will fit in well as he looks to get game time under his belt.

Wallace completed his loan move from Sheffield United and trained with the Town squad on Tuesday morning.

Manager Micky Mellon believes new loan signing James Wallace will bring legs to the Shrewsbury Town midfield.
