I DON'T WANT TO STOP PLAYERS PLAYING FOOTBALL

29 June 2016

United manager Graham Alexander believes Dominic Vose will get a good opportunity to showcase the talent he has, after completing his loan move to Grimsby Town.

The 22-year-old will join the Mariners on a season-long loan deal, and Alexander hopes the midfielder can get some valuable game time under his belt at Blundell Park.

Alexander revealed he spoke with Vose at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, and he says it was evident that the former Wrexham wanted to play regular football once more, after struggling to force his way into the United line-up following his January move from the Welsh club.

The boss added he is always disappointed to see players leave the club but, at the same time, stated he’d never stand in the way of an individual who wants to go out and play week-in week-out.

“I spoke with all the players at the end of last season individually - to get their thoughts and to give them mine too,” he revealed.

“What was apparent with Dom was that he was extremely frustrated, which I fully understand. He hadn’t really played too often since he came in to the club, so it was one of those where he wants to play.

“He wanted to explore to see if he could get out on loan somewhere straight from the off. I don’t want to stop players playing football, they need to compete to get into our team. However, if they see their immediate playing opportunities elsewhere, then we will do our best to help them do that.

“Grimsby came in for Dom, and obviously they were in for him when we signed him. So there’s a long time affection for him, from them and the manager."
