PAUL McNALLY has added loan signing Andrew Heald to his Runcorn Linnets squad.
The Curzon Ashton man has joined Linnets in order to re-gain match sharpness after a spell on the sidelines.
A former Leigh RMI player, Ashton is comfortable in defence or in central midfield and McNally believes the 31-year-old’s experience and versatility will prove valuable.
“He’s a very experienced non-League player and he’s not been in the Curzon team,” said McNally. “He got suspended and then he hasn’t got back in because they’ve been winning, such is football.
“He knows a couple of the lads and asked to come down to get some games in and some sharpness back.
“He could be here for a week, two weeks or three months, it depends on when his club want him back.
“He’s very experienced and very versatile, he’s been around so his experience will help some of the younger lads. You’d expect him to go straight into the starting squad but that will depend on training this week.”
McNally has been busy in bringing fresh faces in over recent weeks, but hasn’t ruled out further additions if they can add quality.
Asked if he’s happy with his squad, McNally said: “I was happy with it two weeks ago. Just getting guys in and getting them fit. Obviously Healds will only add to the squad and players who can do that we will bring in.
“You just keep chatting to people at this time of year. Managers move on, players get unhappy, so you have to keep on top of it and see who is out there.”
