Tamworth Hoping Defender Will Be In Their Squad Ahead Of Restart

Tamworth are hoping Jordan Cullinane-Liburd will be back in contention ahead of the Southern League restart despite his move to Brackley Town.

But, joint boss Gary Smith says he won’t stand in any players way if they want to challenge themselves at a higher level.

The former Hereford defender signed for the Lambs in the summer but moved to National League North side Brackley Town last month.

It’s a situation teams could see more of, if all clubs don’t get back playing again soon, reckons Smith.

“With us not being allowed to play at our level, you’ll probably see it happen more with lads looking to play football, they’ll go to clubs in the National League simply to play,” he said.

“Jordan’s come in and done superbly well. I think back to the first game of the season against Peterborough Sports with his thumping header and he’s grew since then.

“He’s settled in well and he bought into our philosophy and we were getting good things out of him. He was solid, he never let us down but that’s the kind of strength in depth we’ve got at the football club.

“Brackley had a look at him and he had an opportunity to stay there so we’ll see what materialises with that.

“We’d like Jordan to still be in our squad, but one thing we won’t do as a football club is stand in anyone’s way who wants to go and play at a higher level.”

The Lambs are preparing for a friendly with Halesowen Town this Saturday, with an FA Trophy tie three days later against Royston.

There could be some good news as far as injuries go.

“Nothing’s changed with the rest of the squad,” Smith said.

“We’ve still got Tyrell Waite and Dan Creaney to come back into the fold so hopefully if we can get going, they’ll be included which will give us an extra boost in terms of the players we’ve got to choose from.

“Apart from Jordan, we’re still in the same position that we were in, so we’ll see what happens.”
