GROGAN EN­JOYS TOUGH BAP­TISM

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Matt Bad­cock

CAL­LUM GROGAN has thanked Rad­cliffe Bor­ough for giv­ing him the con­fi­dence to re­turn to par­ent club Shrews­bury Town and push for the first team.

The 19-year-old de­fender has been on loan at the EvoStik Divi­sion One North club from the Shrews.

He says the spell in Non­League will pay off.

“I want to fight for my place at Shrews­bury and show what I’m ca­pa­ble of,” Grogan told The FLP.

“I played a good amount of games. It was tough at first, but it’s a good group of lads with a good man­ager and good ex­pe­ri­ence.

“It showed me how much of a step-up men’s foot­ball is. Even though it’s not League One level, it’s still a big step-up when you’re play­ing week in, week out. It’s a bat­tle, and I re­ally en­joyed it. You play against some big, tough lads but I think I held my own.”

Micky Mel­lon, now Tran­mere boss, was in charge when Grogan went on loan. Now he’s hop­ing to im­press new boss Paul Hurst.
