Selling Town is easy says Grezza

Graham Alexander claims that selling Fleetwood Town to potential new signings is easy.

The Cod Army boss has already added five new players to his squad this summer, the latest being Scottish midfielder Stewart Murdoch.

While many League Two clubs struggle to attract players, Alexander says the set-up at Highbury gives him a huge advantage.

He told The Gazette: “We like to think we do the right things here and treat the players right at Fleetwood.

“We don’t just do things right on the pitch, we do them right off the pitch and around the ground too.

“It’s a club that is building and we show players the plans we have for the future.

“It’s a really exciting club to join at the moment. I think the whole package we offer to players comes across really well.”

Alexander is putting the final touches to his squad ahead of his first full season in management.

He is hoping to make one or two more additions before the season begins, including Southend’s Ryan Cresswell after the club tabled a third bid for the centre-half after twice being turned down.

But Alexander won’t be rushing into any decisions. He added: “I like to look into a player’s eyes when I meet him.

“You get a feel for someone when you sit and talk to them for a couple of hours.

“I like players to sit down with me and talk, so I can make sure they know what they are coming into here.

“It can make it a long process, but we will do that to make sure that we get the right people.”
