Three new faces have arrived at the Pirelli Stadium so far.WITH three new signings secured for Burton Albion’s debut season in League One, Brewers assistant manager David Oldfield believes the squad is shaping up nicely for the challenges ahead.
Callum Reilly was the first player to put pen to paper with the former Birmingham City midfielder agreeing a two-year deal.
Oldfield said: ”We liked Callum before he came in on loan and then he had a short spell with us. He was very impressive in training and played a few minutes in two games before he unfortunately got injured. He will be a really good asset. He has a willingness to work and he has a lot of potential and he will certainly add to our group.
“He has experience at a higher level which is always good. What we need to do is focus on getting the best out of Callum as he has a lot to give.”
Meanwhile, Calum Butcher has spent two seasons with Scottish Premiership side Dundee United.
Oldfield said: “He’s competitive and strong and wants to do the best he can. We have identified him as a player who will blossom under the gaffer and will realise his full potential."
Defender Darius Charles will make up a quartet of ex-Stevenage players at the Pirelli Stadium having played League One football at Broadhall Way alongside Albion skipper John Mousinho, Phil Edwards and Lucas Akins.
Oldfield said: “Football is actually a small game at times and you come across the same players so that will help Darius fit in quickly.
“He is a good professional but also one we feel has the potential to do even better.”
