Wilson Excited for More From Campbell-Ryce

Spireites manager Danny Wilson signed Sheffield United’s Jamal Campbell-Ryce on loan a week ago and is now looking forward to seeing more from the tricky winger.

Campbell-Ryce, who had previously made 14 appearances for the Spireites in 2004 whilst on loan from Charlton Athletic, made an instant impact last Saturday, scoring the leveller from the bench in the away draw at Scunthorpe United. 

The former Jamaica international earned 22 caps for his national side and has made over 400 appearances in his career as a pro, and Wilson has referred to his experience in league football being a vital part of his move to the Proact. 

He said: “We know what Jamal can do. He’s an experienced player, when he came on we didn’t have to tell him what to do because he knows what positions to take up on and off the ball.

"He gets in at the back post too, we tell all the wide lads to do this and as we saw he does it naturally, which is great for us.

“He’s also got great pace that can hurt teams and push them onto the back foot, so from that point of view it’s great.

“He had a fantastic debut, it can’t get any better than that! He ended up with a very good goal for us and we’re just hoping he can continue to offer us a lot going forwards because if we’re going to stay up, it’s going to be goals that keep us up.”
