3 players that should use pre-season to impress for Salford City

As Salford City head into their new and exciting League Two campaign. The Football Manc Cave have selected three players who will be aiming to impress before the season starts.

Graham Alexander’s team managed to secure promotion from the National League to League Two at the end of last season via the playoffs. I think it’s safe to say that all of the team, including new signings, will all be out to impress and aim for another promotion.

Salford won a pre-season friendly 4-0 this week against SAK 1914. There’s been no confirmation of goal scorers yet, although newly signed players have been seen with the squad.

With that in mind, here are 3 players that will want to show they can step up and prove, that they’re worth taking a chance on this coming season.

Oscar Threlkeld

The Bolton born man spent a lot of his career shuffling between Bolton Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle. He’s only signed for the Ammies this summer and fans are excited to see him in action. Threlkeld will be looking to break into the squad as soon as possible. He’s very versatile, as he’s a known midfielder who can also play in defensive positions. I think he’ll make a big impact on fans and the team next season.

Joey Jones

Previously being a part of Arsenal, Leicester City, Yeovil Town, Woking Town and Eastleigh. The 25-year-old will be looking to make an impression. Salford hasn’t been strangers to signing players this summer, so he will have a fight in his hands if he wants to get games. If he can get the chance to prove that he is worth being in the Salford defence, he will want to go all out as he’s been subject to a lot of free transfers over the years.

Mani Dieseruvwe

A player who has been in the squad for a few years now. He broke into the squad last season in the team’s campaign to win promotion. I imagine he will now be hungry to prove that he’s worth a shot, whether it be bringing him off the bench in desperate times or starting him. Salford had another friendly with Atherton recently, where Dieseruvwe scored the only goal of the game. I think he’s trying his best to put his name out there already.
