Alex Morris: ‘We have to be ‘creative’ to add to our squad’

23 August 2022

Alex Morris hopes he can add to his squad before the end of the transfer window.

The manager reported that the recruitment team is still working on potential targets, ahead of the September 1 cut-off point.

Morris says they may have to be creative with finances to make it happen.

He explained: “It would be nice (to make more signings) but we have to work within a budget, so we’d have to find ways to generate the income we need to get players in.

“We have to be creative and we’ll need a bit of luck. But there is time left in the widow and that’s the job of the recruitment team. It’s difficult and I can’t guarantee anything.

“We’ve done all we can so far and recruited well - I think we’ve got eight new bodies in at the last count. But I think 16 left the club, so we rely on luck (with injuries) and we haven’t had a lot. Hopefully that improves.”

Loan man Lachlan Brook (ankle) has joined Rio Adebisi (foot), Charlie Colkett (hamstring) and Christopher Long (not match fit) on the sidelines this week, with initial assessments predicting he will miss around six weeks.

With no midweek game, Morris is now focused on preparing for Saturday’s trip to Bradford City.

He added: “A free week has come at a great time. Both the games we played last week were physically very hard.

"We’ve got a small squad and a lot of weary bodies and they need to rest and recuperate ahead of Bradford at the weekend.
