“Whilst it is alwaysdisappointing to suffer injuries and our medical and rehabilitation team are quite busy at the moment, it doesprovide a number of players with an opportunity to make their mark,” he said.
“We have been particularly impressed with our midfield depth this year with players such as Mason Marr, Ben Paton and Nick Richards all playing crucial roles through themiddle of ground.
“Alexhas been limited to one TAC Cupgame so far this year and we are looking forward to giving him somecontinuity at this level, he is very powerful, competes hard and has enormous talent which combined with agreat work ethic ensures he will improve with every game he plays.
“Calder are very hard to beat on their home ground, but our boys are a tight group and the spiritthey demonstrated in the final stages of last week game will give them enormous confidence in each other.”
