'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Gamble Worth Taking

Jack Redshaw is so important to Morecambe.

When he was sidelined after surgery in the summer it was a big blow for us and this hip injury was expected to keep him out until Christmas.

The prognosis was better in recent month, however the striker still wasn't expected back just yet but well ahead of schedule Redshaw not only made his return to our first team squad he was able to be named on the bench.

Better still he even came on for the final minutes of the win over Burton last Saturday.

Jim Bentley has admitted that it was a bit of a gamble bringing him back, but it was one worth taking, he told the Visitor: 'Maybe it was a gamble, but he'd trained well and will play for the reserves on Tuesday.

'He's looking sharp, he's looking fit in training.

'We gave him eight minutes or whatever it was. I thought with two centre-halves tiring in the game, both on bookings, loads of space in behind, we've seen Jack come off the bench and be a real outlet for us.

'It might have been a little bit early for him because he was really blowing after a minute or two, but he's been out for that long.'

A couple of weeks worth of training doesn't get you ready for first team football, but it helps.

The coming weeks will see Redshaw continue to get minutes on the pitch and this will build up his fitness and by the time he was scheduled to return you'd imagine he'll be about ready to be starting games!

Winning a regional award for the player of the year, as he did this week, further proves his importance to us.
