Best yet to come from McCullough

20 April 2018

Luke McCullough says the best is yet to come from him as he comes towards the end of his fifth season at Doncaster Rovers.

McCullough joined in 2013 from Manchester United, and despite two long-term injuries, the defender turned midfielder recently made his 100th appearance for the club, and he’s looking forward to showing fans what they have missed.

“I’m yet to show the Rovers fans the best of me yet, especially since the manager moved me into midfield because I haven’t had a proper run of games really, I think if I can stay fit and get on a good run of games then there will be a lot more to come,” he said.

“I’m feeling a lot better every time I play, obviously I’d like to get more games under my belt, it’s just a shame we’re coming towards the end of it now, I don’t want this season to end but I feel a lot fitter and I’m enjoying being fit again

“I just want to finish the season fit, then get a good pre-season in, I haven’t had one for a couple of years now and so that’ll be massive of me, but I’m ready to play when called upon, and play as much as I can then go into the summer feeling good.”

McCullough has been part of a Rovers squad that has suffered a lot of ups and downs over during his five seasons with the club, but he feels the club is in good hands that can see them push on next season.

“The club is a lot different now compared to how it was when I came in five years ago, there’s a lot more structure to it, there’s a lot more people doing jobs around the club and I think the manager has an identity as to how he wants to play,” McCullough added.

“The recent run we’ve been on speaks for itself really, we’ve only lost a handful of games this season, we’re definitely confident that we can get as many points as possible on the board from the last five games and that will really set us up for next year.

“It’s a much younger squad that we have here now, and I’m looking forward to being a part of it, there’s a lot of positivity around the place going forward and we’re all very optimistic about what we can do next season.”
