Blackwell keeps squad on toes
Kevin Blackwell hopes the presence of some high-profile
trialists will act as motivation for his struggling Bury squad.
The Shakers remain in the League One relegation zone despite an
upturn in form that has seen them lose only once in their last four
Blackwell is currently running the rule over a host of
unattached players including former Leeds defender Ben Parker,
ex-Crystal Palace duo Gary Borrowdale and Tom Soars and one-time
Manchester City youngster Javan Vidal.
“I’ve told the players, ‘you’ve got to remember there’s some
good players out of work – you’ve seen them’,” Blackwell told the
Manchester Evening News.
“They’ve had an insight into the ramifications of a lack of
success and losing games – it’s losing jobs. If you’ve got
something you better fight to keep hold of it.”
“I want people to realise nobody’s got a God-given right to be
in the team. I think that was a problem at the club.”
