Gregan To Feature For Kendal

Ashcroft brings in experienced former teammate

Kendal Town’s Head of Coaching and First Team Manager Lee
Ashcroft has announced that Sean Gregan will feature in his squad to face Preston North End on Wednesday night.

Ashcroft said; "It is no secret that after last season the major area we needed to improve was defensively. We scored more goals than almost everyone else, yet we finished with a very nominal goal difference. I have tried to bring in experience in this area and that is where I feel Sean can come in."

"Sean has been down and trained on two occasions now and he has looked very sharp. He had a slight groin strain
when he first met up with us and I didn't want to risk that, but I feel he is ready and will feature in the squad to
face Preston’s first team."

"After this weeks' friendlies are over we will sit down and have a chat about what is the best way forward, but the
fans will hopefully have an unbelievable close up opportunity to see a footballer who has played in the Premier League, now wearing Kendal Town colours."

He continued; "I played with Sean at Preston and he has a terrific passing ability out of the back. His career speaks for itself.

"What he has achieved over a number of years can serve as a motivation to the younger players at Kendal Town.

"Sean has ambitions to get into coaching and I will try and offer him an opportunity and provide him with the
stepping stone he needs towards having a successful management career."
