Lucketti looks ahead

14 September 2013

Chris Lucketti admits there will be no mixed loyalties come kick off on Saturday against one of his former clubs.

“My aim on Saturday is for Fleetwood Town to earn 3 points, and that’s all we are thinking about”

Town come into the game siting in 4th place after a convincing 4-1 victory over Torquay, and Lucketti admits things are starting to come together as they look to break into the top 3 with a win on Saturday.
“The lads are buying into what we spoke about and what we set out in pre-season and I think signs of that are showing on a match day
We have great competition throughout the squad and everyone knows they have to perform or you run the risk of not being in the team”.

The will prove to be a memorable occasion for Town’s assistant manager and former Shaker Lucketti.

"I’ve got a load of happy memories, and those memories will always live with me but careers move on.” 

The former centre back enjoyed 6 memorable years at Gigg Lane, helping the club win back to back promotions to the Championship, their highest finish in recent history.
Speaking about his time with Bury, Lucketti admits he has nothing but happy memories.

 “We had a special group of players there that had all come together on the journey that we had from the old 4th division. It was a fantastic period of my career, I loved every minute of it”

Lucketti played over 200 times for Bury, helping the side win the old division 2 before keeping Bury in the Championship at the expense of Manchester City.
Bury are sitting in mid table after a summer of upheaval which almost saw the club go out of business completely. 

And Lucketti admits he is happy to see his old employers back standing on two feet.

“They had an uncertain future a few months ago but they’ve got new investment in now and probably bought 24, 25 players so they’ve had a big turnaround in terms of playing staff and fortunes and obviously I’m glad to see their on an even keel now.”
