OLDFIELD IS HOPING ALL OF THE NEW SIGNINGS WILL DO WELL

28 August 2015

BURTON Albion’s management team are determined to maintain the team spirit that helped the Brewers win the League Two title after adding new faces to the squad this season.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has brought in midfielders Callum Reilly and Calum Butcher and defender Darius Charles and all three are expected to quickly buy into the ethos that has served Albion so well since the former Chelsea striker took over the manager’s job last November.

Remi Matthews and Zeli Ismail are on loan with the Brewers, both of which have already spent time on loan with the Brewers in the past.

Brewers assistant manager David Oldfield said: “The group is very important to us, we have constantly repeated that. We are hopeful that everyone will settle in really quickly and enhance the group we have.

“All of the players are good lads who want to do well. It will be interesting to see how they fair. The gaffer will work the players hard and they know that.

“We hope they will do very well for the football club and will turn out to be important assets.

“The manager wants to have the right players around him and all three signings fit into that criteria.

“You need experience and youth in the squad and we feel these boys can add to that. It’s about the right player and the right person rather than too many other factors.

“Good players are valuable and important.”
