Adam Barrett pleased to help the development of Callum Davies at Gillingham
Adam Barrett is pleased to play a part in the development
of Gillingham’s latest young talent, Callum Davies.
Gills skipper Barrett (pictured) played alongside the
19-year-old in central defence on Tuesday night as the pair held
off a determined challenge from Cheltenham.
Barrett, who turns 33 later this month, said: "Callum has done
well, especially one fantastic covering tackle in the first half
and I am delighted for the lad.
"He is going to learn from the experience in what was a big game
here, with more pressure but he acquitted himself well.
"We have good players throughout the squad but I am pleased for
him and that will do his confidence the world of good.
"Every time he has been called upon he has done well.
"He has got to learn his trade and he will get better with age.
Hopefully I can help him along the way.
"He is someone who listens, his attitude is good and he works
hard. I don’t want to put any pressure on the lad but he has a
bright future and he will have a long career."
