'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mellon - Chesterfield Checked A Few Boxes

Manager Micky Mellon has said that the friendly against Chesterfield more than ticked a few boxes for him in terms of what he was hoping for in our opening friendly of the summer pre season campaign.

Goals from James Collins and trialist Craig Curran were enough to give us the victory, and speaking to the Official Site following his first game in charge, a happy gaffer said.

'We're pleased with where we are at the minute as a group. We showed that with the improvements we'll make before the start of the season that we have some talented footballers here. It's always nice to score goals because it gets you guys off our backs straight away! We've ticked a few boxes with goals, a clean sheet and a home victory so it's happy days. It was a terrific game for us at this stage of the season and it gave the fans a chance to see the talent we have in the building.'

Of course former striker James Collins made the perfect start with a goal on his second debut for Town, but his overall contribution was pleasing for the manager - but he was quick to not single out individuals, preferring to talk about the performance of the group given we have only been back eight odd days, and the fact that even though it's effectively a new group, the way we gelled for a performance like that was very pleasing for him, because he knows with time and more training we will only get better anyway.

With a number of trialists being involved in the game, the gaffer also wouldn't be drawn on plans or potential decisions he'll make on them yet, but he was adamant that non of them had done themselves any harm with their attitude in training and with how they performed on the pitch when called upon, and neither had the youngsters he's brought into the first team mix.
