Digby commends Stags' professionalism since signing

27 July 2017

Stags' midfielder Paul Digby has been impressed by the professional nature of the club since joining from Ipswich Town two months ago.

Boss Steve Evans swooped to bring the versatile former Barnsley midfielder to the club at the end of last season and Digby has settled into life well at One Call Stadium.

And speaking to the local media at One Call Stadium this morning, he said: "It's been a nice surprise almost, because it's so professional.

"It's been brilliant coming in and the staff have been fantastic and just so professional in how they've gone about everything from the training, the training's all measured and the diet and all those kind of things, it's been quite amazing to be fair.

"The fans here are fantastic. When we were out in Malta, I couldn't believe there were so many fans there! It was really good to see and we appreciate all the support that they've given us.

"It was great coming back for a few days and then getting away for a few days [in Malta] was fantastic to get all the lads together and it just bonded us as a group. It was an amazing hotel we stayed in and the facilities were fantastic and it was a really good trip to go on."

"It's been brilliant coming in and the staff have been fantastic and just so professional in how they've gone about everything."

Paul Digby, midfielder

The 22-year-old is vying for a place in a highly-competitive midfield and he believes the squad has a good mixture of all the components needed for a successful outfit.

"We got a good blend; we've got a good few younger players, some good experience in the team, some real good, strong leaders within the group and I think we've got a bit of everything.

"We've got a bit of pace in the team, which we'll need in League Two, some good footballers, some really good footballers, good organisers on the pitch is what we'll need as well and blending all those together, I think we've got a really strong squad."

After plying his trade in the Championship so far in his career, Digby thinks he may need to adapt his game for League Two, but is determined to work hard to continue his improvement as a player.

"The football's maybe a bit different [to the Championship] at times, but I just keep trying to improve and adapt every day and that's what I try and do.

"I just want to keep getting better every day in training. I always try and improve myself, if it's little things I always look at my game and always try to think 'could I have done that better? Could I have done this better?' and that's in training and in games as well.

"I think that's a good attitude to improve myself as a player and help the boys to succeed because that's what we all want to do as a team.

"I'll always give my all whether it's training or a match. I want to help my team-mates be at their best as well because if we want to win games and if we want to have the success that we do want to have, I think it's important to make sure that my team-mates are at their best as well because then we can win collectively."
