Shame about Shamir

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town man­ager John Askey has re­vealed his frus­tra­tion af­ter striker Shamir Mullings had his loan deal at the club can­celled - just a few days af­ter he signed.

The for­ward had joined Macc on loan from League Two side For­est Green Rovers last week on an ini­tial two-month deal.

It ended pre­ma­turely though, as a pre­vi­ously un­de­tected in­jury meant he missed out on Satur­day’s 2-0 win at Bar­row, and he has now re­turned to his par­ent club for as­sess­ment.

Askey was dis­ap­pointed, but he now plans on look­ing else­where to try and im­prove his Silk­men squad.

“We’ve got to keep look­ing. We’ve been af­ter a striker in that mode for a while and hope­fully we’ll bring some­one else in to fill the void that’s now been left,” he told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site.

“We want to bol­ster the squad, but they have to be the right player. There’s no point in just bring­ing a body in – be­cause they have to com­pli­ment what we do. All the player’s we’ve got at the mo­ment are all de­cent and we want to try and con­tinue that.

“We have been talk­ing about try­ing to get a big cen­tre for­ward in for a long time now. For two or three years or more we have been look­ing for some­one who can hold a ball up and our main prob­lem has been putting the ball in the net.”
