Aldred glad for second crack at Scotland

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Tom Aldred has long had his eye on another crack at top flight football in Scotland.

The central defender, who has signed on loan at Motherwell until the end of the 2017/18 season, had a short spell in the Scottish Premiership earlier in his career with Inverness CT.

Having also represented the country at youth level, the 27-year-old wasn’t going to pass up the chance to move to Fir Park when the chance arose.

“Playing in the Scottish Premiership was something I was really interested in,” he said on his arrival. “I’m looking forward to getting going.

“I am familiar with Scotland. My mum’s side of the family are Scottish and I’ve visited up here a few times.

I keep an eye on Scottish football and I’m aware Motherwell have had a good season so far.

“Obviously with them doing well in the cup as well. I know a few of the boys as well I’ve played with, and against, in England.”

Aldred moves from Bury, where he joined from Blackpool in the summer, having taken the Seasiders to League One via the play-offs.

The towering defender adds to Stephen Robinson’s options in the centre back positions¬†

“Wherever you go now, there’s competition for places,” he said. “Anywhere you go at any team, at any level. The more competition, the best it brings out in yourself.

“I am really looking forward to it, to getting my head down, working hard and being the best I can be for the football club.”
