A good league

23 November 2012

Gregg Wylde on his first day impressions of Gigg Lane

“I trained with the boys for the first time on Thursday and it was very good, all the boys seem to be buzzing and looking forward to the weekend.  It was a hard session though but I had been warned by David Healy, who I know from our days at Rangers and I am looking forward to the rest of my time here.

I want first team involvement now, I’ve been out of it for a while now and to come here on loan to help out Bury and myself is good.  Dougie Freedman mentioned this to me on Monday, I had a think about it on Tuesday – and I thought why not, its 20 minutes from home so I am here or the next six weeks, that gives me the time to try and help Bury get up the league as well and get some games in.  I’m pleased to be here.

I’m dropping a division, but it’s still a good league.  I’ve got friends that play in this League at Portsmouth and Sheffield United, they’ve all told me that this is a good league, so I am looking forward to the challenge and seeing what it brings.

I spoke to David Healy a few weeks ago and he’s told me that this is nothing compared to Murray Park (Rangers Training Ground), at the end of my time at Rangers it was costing the club but they have made massive cut backs and its different now.

I started at Celtic and moved to Rangers when was about eleven and was at Rangers for the rest of the time until moving to Bolton.  All my family are Rangers supporters, but that’s all in the past now and I am looking forward to being here and seeing what it brings.

This is a good club and there are plenty of good players here.  They have had a new manager come in and he’s obviously lifted them off the bottom of the league, hopefully he’ll bring more points on the board.

They are good players and going in the right direction, we’ve picked up points away from home with a good win at Scunthorpe on Tuesday, but I will take it one game at a time.  Its good to come into a team with momentum, there’s a good team bond here and I can see in the dressing room that they are all pals.  David Healy has told me that everyone is quite close to each other, and that helps me because they have been really good with me on my first day.

Owen Coyle signed me at Bolton and I don’t think I have anything to prove to Bolton.  I’ll come in and hopefully impress the manager and take it from there.  One of my assets is pace, hopefully I can bring it into the team, plus I can score goals as well.   I was quite pleased when the manager told me that he expects me to see a lot of the ball, this will suit me.

It’s a month at the moment, we will see what happens, if I am enjoying it then I can’t see any reason for it to be extended, but it all depends on Bolton and what they say. 

I know absolutely nothing about Bournemouth, so we will see what happens on Saturday.”
