Bradders Backing Symes

With the new season barely 3 weeks away, Lee Bradbury is backing Michael Symes to bounce back from last seasons injury set back to be stronger than ever.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Bradders is quoted as saying: "I think Symesey could be a massive player for us next season. We put him back in the team and instilled confidence in him and gave him self belief, which is massive for any striker. Like all the players, I want him to play freely and express himself. We gave him the licence to do that and he excelled. He came in and scored a goals and then picked up his injury. That was disappointing for us because it was at the wrong time of the season as well. But on the flip side, Steve Lovell came into the team and did great as well, so we are spoiled for choice and have some good players to choose from".
