Impact Of New Players Is Not Always Good News For All
Updated Wednesday, 20th January 2010
Clubs cannot afford to keep players if they do not have a chance of getting a game.
Alloa manager Allan Maitland has decided to make striker Brian Carrigan available for transfer as his chances of starting a game have been severely limited by the arrival of former Ayr United man Bryan Prunty. Maitland said: "I am delighted to get Bryan on board but the knock on effect of that is that there is limited opportunity for Brian Carrigan to get a game now. He has done well for us this season scoring vital goals and he also featured as a substitute against St Mirren last week but at this stage of his career he needs to be playing games."
Carrigan played for Maitland before at Clyde and Hamilton and was signed by Billy Reid for a short stint in the SPL for the New Douglas Park team last season before moving to Linlithgow Rose. Maitland bought him from the Rose a year ago. Maitland also added to his squad to fill the left back position that has been troubling him all season. Young James Bloom has arrived on loan from Falkirk. Welshman Bloom began his career with Cardiff City before joining Falkirk at the start of this season.
