Saunders won't rush over transfers.
Byline: ROB GRIFFITHS
WREXHAM boss Dean Saunders Dean Nicholas Saunders (born 21 June, 1964 in Swansea, Wales) was a Welsh footballer and was a prolific forward.
He is probably best known for playing for Aston Villa. has no intention of being rushed when it
comes to bringing in the players he feels will help the club back into
the Football League.
The appointment of Saunders, who took over in charge at the
Racecourse in October following the departure of Brian Little Brian Little can refer to:
an immediate up turn in the Dragons fortunes as they charged into the
- William Brian Little, financier and founding partner of Forstmann Little & Company
- Brian Little (footballer), English football (soccer) player
- Bryan Little, Canadian ice hockey player
But a terrible run in to the business end of the campaign ended
with Wrexham 10th place, 15 points shy of Stevenage
Borough who filled the final play-off berth.
However, Saunders, who has already dropped the axe over a number of
Wrexham players, will not be rushed into making personnel changes at the
club unless he feels they would benefit the team.
"I think we can be patient," he said. "Leyton
Orient released eight players from their books only yesterday, and
Chester City Chester City or City of Chester may mean: Places
- Chester, which is the city in Cheshire, England
are trying to release all their players, so there are going
to be players coming onto the market all the time.
- Chester City F.C., which is the football (soccer) club in England.
"What we have to do is to make sure we get the right players
for the way I want to play football. Then, and this is the hard part, we
have to try to persuade them to drop down to the Conference. "We
did well last year with the loan players and the players on short-term
deals we were able to get in, the likes of Ashley Westwood Ashley Westwood (born 31 August 1976 in Bridgnorth) is a professional footballer who currently plays as a central defender for Port Vale on loan from Chester City. Youthful Promise , John Curtis The name John Curtis might refer to:
Joe Allen Joe Allen (born 14 March 1990 in Carmarthen, Wales) is a Welsh footballer, currently playing for Swansea City. He made his debut for Swansea as a substitute in the 6-3 defeat to Blackpool F.C. on the final day of the League One season. , who did a really good job for us, Nathan Fairhurst, Ryan
Flynn Ryan Flynn (born September 4 1988) is a young Scottish footballer. He currently plays for Liverpool, and was promoted from the Academy in 2006, having featured in the FA Youth Cup winning side of the previous season. . But most of them were all young lads and when you are playing
three games week in week out it can take a real toll on them and also it
can be hard for them to come back and pick themselves up after a
defeat." So far Saunders has released goalkeepers Gavin Ward and
Anthony Williams, as well as young defenders Chris Marriott and Simon
Spender, while Jefferson Louis left the club yesterday by mutual
agreement having had his contract cancelled. But while Saunders who is
also assistant coach to national boss John Toshack, will not be rushed,
he does have a certain type of player in mind to boost the Dragons.
"I've got ideas on how I want to play," he added.
"And I've got ideas on the type of players I want and I'm
going to try and bring in better players to the club every year.
"It's not rocket science, you look to get the best players you
can for the right money for the club, and then coach them and organise
them to play. "Jeff (Louis) was a decent player when he put his
mind to it, and he did really well for us up to Christmas, but then
struggled a little bit after Christmas. "I just felt I
couldn't guarantee him a place in the starting line up, and maybe
him living so far away in London was also an issue. "I've got
priorities, looking at last season, I know what went wrong and I know
what we have to do to put it right. "Burton Albion went on a worse
run that we did towards the end of the season, but still went up as
champions." Saunders could be forgiven, however, for feeling
fortune was not on his side last season. In form striker Marc Williams
broke a bone in his foot at home against Salisbury in the 1-1 draw, and
then the player brought in to replace him, Matt Jansen, also went down
with an injury. "We did feel quite unlucky. But that's
football, it happens and you have to get on with it." "Marc
was in really good form for us, but it's not only his goals,
it's also his workrate, and hopefully he'll come back and be
ready to have a full pre-season with us and get back to the form of last
season. "I want players who have that kind of attitude and give
everything. If you've got a team of them you won't go far
wrong, because they never give you a three out of 10 performance. The
worst you'll ever get from them is maybe a five or a six out of
