WOOLFY | A FRESH START

4 January 2022

"I’ve not played that much this year for different reasons but I’m looking to kick on now and get back in the team"

Luke Woolfenden says that the appointment of Kieran McKenna presents a chance for him to regain his place in the side.

The centre-back has made 16 appearances this season, with seven of those coming across cup competitions.

However, having featured just twice in League One from September to November, Woolfy has started and impressed in Town's last two outings against Sunderland and Wycombe respectively.

He believes that now is the chance for him and others within the squad to 'go again'.

Discussing the subject, he also provided an insight into the first couple of weeks under the Blues' new manager.

"I’ve not played that much this year for different reasons but I’m looking to kick on now and get back in the team," the 23-year-old told the Club website.

"It’s a fresh start and a chance for a few of us to get out there and go again. When you’re not playing, it’s the worst thing in the world. Now, with a new start you can get your head together, see if you are in the plans and go from there.

"All of the sessions have been really good, really sharp and really intense. It’s been a lot of football fitness rather than just running. It’s been very game-related, so I’ve found it really good.

"Kieran has been at the biggest club in England and one that is definitely in the top three biggest clubs in the world [Manchester United], so I've just been picking his brains about that. Just knowing how the top athletes live and work will be good for me and everyone else at the Club."
