Halliday: I want to help get the best out of the team

New signing Brad Halliday sat down with the club on Friday afternoon and talked about his move to Fleetwood Town and why he chose the club.

The 25-year-old – who has signed a two-year-deal with the Cod Army - is experienced at League One level having spent the last two seasons at Doncaster, making 70 appearances in that time, and spent a season at Accrington Stanley on loan from his first club, Middlesbrough.

Here’s what Brad had to say:

On the move to Fleetwood…

“I’m delighted to get it done, it’s been a while since the season ended so to finally get over to Fleetwood, I’m happy to get going and hopefully kick-on next season.

“There’s been a lot of interest since the end of last season, and we spoke to Simon [Grayson] and the rest of the team and to get the contract sorted is great.

“I’ve played a lot of games now at both League One and League Two level so I’m going into next season like any other. I’m an attacking full-back and I want to start adding goals and assists to my game in the upcoming season.”

On the facilities at the club…

“We originally came over and had a look at the facilities and whilst over here, had face to face conversations with the manager and some of the staff, and I knew that I wanted to be here after those conversations.

“The facilities are lovely; they remind me of home. I’m originally from Redcar, a little town on the coast up in the North East so it’s like being back at home really. I’m looking forward to moving over and spending a lot of time over here.

On passing on his experiences so far…

“I remember starting out as a young lad, going out on loan to clubs and getting experience, so the young lads in the squad and whoever else comes in, I will be there to help them and give them a bit of advice and guidance and I want to help get the best out of them.

“In the changing room, with the Academy lads coming through and breaking into the team, I will try and help them as I do think I’ve got a lot of experience that I am able to pass on to them.”
