Chance Is There For Callum

2 July 2015

Steve Davis challenges Saunders to propel himself forward with goals.

Steve Davis has challenged his talented young striker Callum Saunders to score the goals to propel himself into his first-team plans this pre-season. Saunders got a taste of first-team action during the last campaign. After making his senior debut as a substitute away at Fleetwood on the opening day of the season, when he won a late penalty with a clever run in behind, the Turkey-born hit-man went on to make a further five appearances, including starts at Leyton Orient and Sheffield United in the FA Cup.

The 19-year-old will now be looking to make a suitable impression during the pre-season fixtures and show that he has pushed on from his debut season.

Steve Davis told “Callum’s first aim to do well in pre-season. We have told him that and he has six weeks to become really fit and show what he can do.

“He has had a taste of it last season. He knows what it is about now and knows the level. He has played half a dozen games at the level now and he knows what to expect. Now he has to push on and score goals in pre-season.

“He has been working on his physique because he knows he has to develop that side of things. Callum’s main asset is that he scores goals. He is a natural goal scorer and I was playing to bring in another forward so that is the challenge for him.”
