It’s almost a given that a closed transfer window will mean a prod in the direction of the manager about trialists and free agents at his weekly press conference, and it was no different this morning when the local media gathered online to get the latest on the possibility of that area of the market being exploited, as it was so effectively last season with the November arrival of defender Rhys Bennett.
“Nobody’s contacted us,” Chris Beech said. “It’s important, while we do look, that if we have interest in a player, that it’s reciprocated. You can soon upset the changing room with a difference.
“Sometimes you can often think you’ve got the answer – and if you look at other clubs in our league, Leon Clarke makes his debut, scores a header, and the next minute he’s injured.
“It’s so difficult to get that right. I suppose if I looked at doing that now you’d probably get a lot of people saying he’s going into panic mode, he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
“If it does happen it’s got to be the right person that fits us right. If it doesn’t, I’m very comfortable with what we’ve got.
“What we need to do is concentrate on how we do it and what we do within it. If the boys do that well, you’ve seen plenty in pre-season and early season, we’re capable of winning League Two fixtures."
