United Recruit McCallum on Loan
THE Yellow recruitment drive continues in earnest with the addition of striker Paul McCallum in a one-month loan deal from West Ham.
The powerful young forward enjoyed loan spells with Aldershot and Wimbledon last season, and goes straight into the United squad for tonight’s trip to Burton Albion.
‘’We hope he is the missing jigsaw piece and you don’t have to be a football genius to know we’re missing a little bit at the top end of the pitch,’’ said manager Alan Knill.
‘’Paul is something different. He scored goals last year for Aldershot and Wimbledon, and actually scored here for Wimbledon, and we’re very thankful to West Ham for letting him out.
‘’He’s been injured and now his fitness is good, but just needs games. He is a physical presence and an alternative option because you can’t always pass it around people in the box.
‘’On Saturday against Mansfield, we put a lot of good balls into the box but it was quite difficult for our players to get on the end of it, so a bit more size always helps.’’
