Dolan: I'm going into pre-season feeling great and injury free

The club spoke to midfielder Callum Dolan in the off-season and after injury struggles last campaign, he knows the importance of hitting the ground running.

Dolan - who Town signed from Warrington Rylands in January 2023 - made 13 appearacnes in all competitions last time out, in the middle of being loaned out to Torquay United in October 2023.

The young midfielder enjoyed valuable game time whilst out on-loan and became an instant hit down south, scoring two important goals in the six fixtures he played in.

An unlucky run with injures included a large spell on the sidelines for Dolan, and with medical procedures and a few weeks off after the end of the 2023/24 season, the 23-year-old is now working as hard as ever in the off-season to prepare for a progressive season next campaign.

When Dolan has played for the Cods he has been an impressive prospect and fans have grown to his impressive work-rate and his raw talent, including a great performance away at table-toppers Portsmouth last December when the teams shared the points.

Here is what Dolan had to say about his tough period on the sidelines, learning everyday and his aims for the Club and next season:

On his time injured...

“At first it was obviously devastating, I felt like I was improving with each game but that is part of football.

"I enjoy the physical side of what we do as well as the footballing side, so I will try my best to never complain about an impact injury itself.

“It’s great knowing I’m going into pre-season feeling good and injury free. I’m looking forward to a tough building phase and will be counting down the days until the first game.”

On the spirit in the team and learning every day...

“First and foremost, I’m all about being a team-player and our aims for next season are to try our best to get promoted.

"The Club have spent a lot of time in League One and I personally feel that we owe it to the fans to push as hard as we can to be back in that league.

“Obviously, I would like to play as many games as possible and build on the good form I showed when I was fully available. If that's helping the backline on keeping a clean-sheet or chipping in offensively, whatever helps the team I want to offer.

“I’m learning so much from Charlie [Adam] but the best thing is I am learning from Maurice Ross and Ross Wallace too.

"Everyone in the building knows that the staff are giving 100% everyday, so I just want them to know that I will give them 100% too.”
