Manager Mike Jackson has said that our final game of the season this weekend against Gillingham is the perfect opportunity for a few youngsters to stake a claim for next season and their futures in the rebuild of Shrewsbury Town if they are called upon for the game.
Speaking to the Official Site ahead of our game against Gillingham the gaffer explained that he had been very impressed with the efforts and the attitude of the likes of goalkeeper Callum Burton, defender Dom Smith, midfielder Niall Flint and winger Josh Ginnelly from our youth teams and he admits they have all been pushing hard in training for a shot in the first team, and he might well decide to give some of them a go.
'We're going to take a couple with us and I'm hoping we can get a couple involved. It depends how the game's going but we'll try and get them some game time even if it's for five minutes. A lot of them have worked really hard and they've done great.'
Jacko goes on to say that over the last three odd months four or five of the lads he has in mind have been training with the first team to introduce them to the pace and tactics and they haven't let themselves down and they've been a credit, so even if ultimately they only get the experience of travelling it will help give them a taste and a reward for their efforts so far, and if he can get them some pitch time then that's even better.
With pride to play for obviously but nothing else now sadly this season, blooding some youngsters, giving them a confidence boost and pitch time to really focus them for next season and a real shot at first team involvement could be a great positive we can take from this game.
