First team coach says wingers are determined to impress.
James Collins has been impressed with the work ethic of the club’s wide men in the opening two pre-season games.
Of course, the players are still finding their feet and these opening games are more to do with building fitness levels, but the first-team coach has been pleased with the signs shown by the wide men in their attacking and defensive duties.
Brad Inman helped himself to his first goal of pre-season in the 7-1 win over Alsager Town and Ryan Colclough and George Cooper were at their creative best in the first half creating two goals apiece.
James told the club’s official web-site: “There is certainly some talent there. They have their faults. When they lose the ball, their transition can be slow but they are all working hard on that. I think we have seen evidence of that in the friendly games.
“They have to work their socks on in those positions and they have done that. All three of them, Brad, George and Ryan have worked hard in pre-season and have been flying around in training. They have been trying to impress and we have been pleased with their attitude.
He added: “We know they have talent and they have to carry that work load on and become a real threat to the opposition. If they do that then they will be real assets for us this season.”
