Exclusive Johnny Mac Interview - Part 3

“All monies from the transfer of Keith Fahy have been put aside solely for the use of bringing players to the club. That money, along with funds from the Supporter Patron Scheme, have been put in a separate bank account to be used for the purposes of strengthening the squad. As funds come in, they can be used immediately. Notwithstanding this, we need to be patient and make sure that this money is used wisely to bring the right players in. There is no point in signing players just for the sake of it. We want to bring in players who want to play for the club and will improve the side, like John Frost has done and will continue to do.

There has also been speculation about the on-off transfer of Bray striker Eamon Zayed and McDonnell is keen to clear up any misunderstandings on this subject:

“Contrary to recent comments, we were close to signing Eamon Zayed,” confirms the Pats gaffer. “In the event, we reached a stumbling block and ultimately, we didn't quite have sufficient funds to secure the signing but hopefully, with the Supporter Patron Scheme being introduced, the next time players like Eamon become available we will be in a position to secure their signatures.”
