We would like to welcome Scott Lindsey and his assistant Jamie Day to the club. On Saturday, we will be able to welcome and support them both as we face a big match at home to Doncaster.
As part of his press conference, we, the CTSA, were given the opportunity to ask Lindsey some questions as he joins the club. We would like to thank Mark Dunford for asking these questions on our behalf. The questions and answers can be seen below. Please note that they were not able to talk specifically about George Francomb, Tony Craig and Jake Hessenthaler.
Q: Will you have the opportunity to play all of the existing squad on Saturday?
A: It’s probably too early to say at the moment. I need to go in and assess injuries and everything else and see where we are with that. But it’s probably too early on to say at the moment.
Q: Have you got the funds to improve the squad under the owners?
A: The squad’s quite thick anyway. I think we need to streamline it. I think probably we need to try and thin that down before we bring players in but certainly, we need to look at that and possibly improve that.
Q: What is happening with loans for existing players and the future?
A: Well with loans we can only name five on the team sheet so we’ve got six here at the moment, so we possibly won’t bring another loan in unless we get a couple out maybe.
Q: Given that the owners and directors of football just sold arguably one of our best players to a relegation rival, will you have any input-on transfer sales, or will that be the director of football telling you which players stats’ will work?
A: Well no. Of course, I am the head coach here, so I am a big part of that process. I don’t think that the football club will sign any player without my say so. I think it’ll be clear to see that me and Chris work closely together and we’ll be working closely together moving forward and it’s a process. We look at data, what positions we need and do their strengths fit into the remit of how we play.
