Statement from Manager Lee Duckworth:
‘Firstly a massive thank you to all those who have wished my family well on our new arrival, we appreciate all the messages from within the club, the supporters and opposing teams, it’s been touching and we can’t thank you enough.
Secondly as Tick has already issued a statement I just want to back that up with saying we won’t be accepting that type of performance. Last season we wanted to consolidate and assess what we have then give players a fresh start with a full intense preseason to see if the players can take us where we want to be. Some of the squad have fell short of the performance levels lately and with that in mind we have been scouring for replacements to strengthen in key areas of the field. Injuries to key personnel have not helped but every club has these issues, so there will be fresh faces.
The first of these I’m delighted to announce the arrival of Arron Kirk. I’ve known Arron quite a long time and he has the quality we look for when we are trying to continue to progress playing football the right way. He is comfortable in possession all over the field and has the desire to push the team forward keeping the ball. Welcome to the club Kirky.
I’m hopeful there will be more in the coming week.
Thankyou for your support – Lee’
