John Sheridan Talks About Pre-Season So Far

7 July 2017

Manager John Sheridan spoke to iFollow Latics this afternoon and here is what

John Sheridan on pre-season so far...

It’s going really well, the lads are putting a good shift in. I think they expected it to be hard and they are getting on with it so I’m really pleased with how things are going at the moment. Games start coming now so that’s something they look forward to once the balls are out but I’m very pleased with the way things are going.

John Sheridan on backroom staff helping out during pre-season...

They are all good lads and they know me as well which is a big plus. They have worked with me before and it’s new to Richie but it’s all about getting experience and being around first team level. I’m really pleased to have Tommy and John Harbin in and I’ve brought them in for the simple reason to make us better. I’m very confident we are going the right way about things and that will prove to be the case when we start.

John Sheridan on tomorrow's opening pre-season friendly against Stalybridge Celtic...

It’s still early days and it’s only a week since we’ve been in. There will be a mixture of first team players with younger players. There will be one or two trialists involved but we will go there and put a show on and win the game. It’s all about getting match time and getting fitness and then we go into next week when we go away for a couple of days. The most important thing is getting as fit as you can and being ready for the first game of the season.

John Sheridan on potential new players...

We are close but I don’t want to say too much because it’s happened a few times before with me. I can talk a lot more when it’s over the line but I just don’t want to count my chickens and hopefully they will be in next week.

John Sheridan on returning for pre-season...

It’s only been a week but I feel like I’ve been back months and it’s coming towards the end of the season. I’m happy to be back, though. You have a holiday and a break but it’s just football, I know how it works. We just have to get ready for nine months of stress.
