Sam pleased with Town's business during the January transfer window
Shrewsbury Town’s busy transfer window came to an end with Sam Ricketts bringing in a total of 10 players.
The Town manager started off with the signing of David Edwards and concluded the Shrews business on deadline day with the loan signing of Tyrese Campbell.
As well as a number of incomings, Town also made significant movement in allowing players to move on and search for game time.
Sam Ricketts was pleased with the clubs business over notoriously difficult month and is looking forward to working with the squad.
“We are really pleased,” said Sam. “It’s a horrible window in terms of planning. Like with Tyrese, it wasn’t on until today – it was a great finish to the window.
“We have brought in quality players, good people and brought the squad numbers down.
“We have a squad around 20 now of outfield players that we can train and work with.
“I am really happy with the squad. We now have pretty much two players for every position.
“There is competition for places. If you want to stay in the team you will have to do well.
“That will be our squad now going forward and we have that continuity for the rest of the season.”
Sam is also pleased with his outgoing business and feels all moves were right for the club and the players.
“Everyone wants to play football, so it was important we got them out to do that and get them enjoying it,” said Sam.
“That opens up space for others to come in so we can add to the squad and the team.
“Everyone who went out is under their own circumstances. Some were because they just weren’t going to play and some were a view to next season.
“The most important thing is football players playing football, and the rest takes care of its self.”
