Ready to make an impact

25 January 2013

Nicky AJose on his second coming at Bury FC

‘Obviously it’s nice to be back, I’m from the area and having been here before, I know what to expect.  Last time was good for all of us so hopefully I can replicate it all again this time.

Loan moves are never easy, but this one was easy to say yes to.  I’ve had mixed experiences on loan at other clubs, so hopefully this can be a positive one.

Last season I was injured for a long time and maybe I lost my way a little bit with fitness and form.  I think it happens in football as a young player.  There’s never any particular reason for it, but that’s all in the past, now I just want to look forward and get back on track.

I’ve got happy memories from my last time here with getting promoted 18 months ago.  It’s a different situation here now though, we need to win games and that’s the position that we are in at the moment.

I’ve not met Kevin Blackwell before and there have been a lot of changes with the staff and the players, but the foundation is the same.  It’s a good club and we shouldn’t be in the position that we are.  From what the lads have told me, they tell me that they have been unlucky in recent weeks.  It’s just been the bounce of a ball and little things that are costing us points.

The league is very tight, but first and foremost we need to get out of the position that we are in at the moment, and then consolidate from there.

I’ve been here all week training with the lads, at an indoor facility at Trafford and for the last couple of days at Stockport.  It’s still AstroTurf, but it’s better than what we have been on because of the snow.

I have some consistency for the next few months now, hopefully I can do my bit in helping to turn the season around and hopefully as a group collectively we can kick on.

There are still a few lads here from when I was here last, but there are a lot of new faces and it’s a very young squad.  It’s going to be a bit strange for me being one of the more experienced players at 21.  There are a lot of young lads here at the moment, so we can all help each other.

There is a good work ethic amongst the group, that’s what you need.  Training has been different but its different everywhere you go.  It’s tough but enjoyable.

I don’t want to be the hero; I want to get some games in, get some wins and just assist the team in getting out of this.

I’m not 100% match sharp, but I’m not far away from it.  I am ready to be involved and if I can, make an impact.  It’s not my decision on if I start or not, but either way I am ready if needed.  It will take me a couple of days to get into it.’
