Richard Eckersley reflects on his time at Valley Parade

The Burnley right-back had the following to say: “I think I’ve developed as a player, I needed a stretch of games to kick on and I’ve had that with Bradford. It’s so frustrating mentally and physically when you’re playing reserve football. You try to get a run of games and fitness but you only play once every two weeks if you’re lucky, and that’s not enough. Burnley realised that I just wanted to go out and play football and be part of a team.”

“You get the ups and downs as a footballer and I’ve seen that. You’ve got to learn to deal with it. You learn that it’s all about the team and getting results for the team. You are cheering every goal that goes in and get upset when you lose. The more you play, the more you bond with your team-mates and that makes you a stronger player.”

Talking of right-backs Taylor should have both Simon Ramsden and Lewis Hunt to choose from on Saturday when we take on Wycombe Wanderers at home. The club also announced today that fellow defender Steve Williams could be set for a return to training this week after over five weeks out with a hamstring problem.
