Rhys Healey has been with the Club exactly seven days since his loan move from Cardiff City. A substitute appearance against Solihull Moors has wetted his appetite to help United get out of relegation trouble.
“In the first half they couldn’t touch us but in the second they came out determined to get a goal back,” said Healey of United’s 1-1 draw against the Moors.”The goal they scored came out of nowhere, but I thought overall we were the better team. It’s disappointing we couldn’t come away with the win.”
Healey’s time on the pitch against Solihull Moors showed why the Gaffer, Gary Owers, was so keen to bring him to the Club. Healey believes the way United play will bring the best out of him.
“It fits me perfectly. We’re very good at counter-attacking and that’s my game – breaking through the lines. I think I’ll fit in well.”
Rhys is fast getting to know his surroundings.
“I’ve been around the town and I’m still getting my bearings,” said Rhys. ” It’s a nice town, yeah. I haven’t been here long but the lads have welcomed me and training has been going well. I’m still finding my feet and showing what I can do.”
He’s also eager to link up further with his good friend and ex-Cardiff City teammate, Tommy O’Sullivan.
“We came through the ranks at Cardiff and the U23s together. He was around the 1st team a lot at Cardiff and I know him very well. He’s looked after me during my time here. I’m looking forward to playing with him again because I know his game inside out. On his day no-one can touch him; he’s a creative player. He can win you games so it will be great for us to be in the same team again.”
