Salford City have appointed 49-year-old Gary Bowyer as the new manager for the trophy winning club and he is looking to bringing a more aggressive style of football to the remaining 11 fixtures.
The former Blackburn Rovers and Bradford City manager, said:
"It’s really good to be here, first impressions are, I mean everybody’s made me feel very welcome from Karen down.
“I’m excited to be here first and foremost, going out and training with the lads this morning it’s so obvious the quality that we have within the squad so I was excited beforehand and very excited now after witnessing the quality they produced in the actual session as well.
“I said to the players this morning, you look at the squad they should take a hell of a lot of confidence and belief from the quality that they have in there and it’s up to us to match the opposition in terms of their fight and in terms of the mentality especially at this stage of the season.
“We’ve got 11 games now to go and play some really aggressive football with and without the ball, and see where it takes us.
“We’ve got to obviously try and get as many victories as possible from these remaining games and see where that actually leaves us come the end of the season but that’s the outcome, what we’ve really got to concentrate on is the things that we can really control like our performances, our effort and our mentality.”
His first test will be against Exeter City on Saturday, KO 13:00 at St. James’ Park.
The game will be available to view online at live.salfordcityfc.co.uk for £10 in the UK and £7 abroad.
