Needham Market man keen to help Bury Town end season on high, after loan switch

New loan signing Ollie Fenn is keen to help Bury Town finish their Ryman North campaign on a high, even if a play-off place now seems a step too far.
Fenn joined the Ram Meadow outfit on-loan from play-off chasing Ryman Premier club Needham Market, last week, and made his debut in the Blues’ 3-2 home win over high-flying Maldon & Tiptree last Saturday, fellow Needham loanee Taylor Bannister, coming off the bench to score twice on his debut.
Tomorrow, the Blues travel to seventh-placed Haringey Borough – a play-off place at the end of the season looking unlikely – having brought a six-match losing streak to an end last weekend.
“It was obviously a frustrating time but sometimes bringing in a couple of new faces can add a different enthusiasm – the team have not played badly in every game by any means – and thankfully we came in and we got a positive result,” said the experienced defensive midfielder.
“The manager (Ben Chenery) has not mentioned the play-offs, I think we are 10 or 11 points off the top-five but you never know what might happen between now and the end of the season.

“Teams could slip-up and we could hit some form at the right time, we are taking it game by game at the moment, but I don’t think it’s (play-offs) realistic. We just want to finish the season strong.
Fenn has signed for a month with Bury, having seen his chances at Bloomfields limited this season, and is unsure where his future lies.

“I spoke to Mark (Morsley, Needham manager) as I have not been playing consistently for various reasons, it’s been a stop-start season for me, and I just wanted to finish the season strongly,” explained Fenn.
“He put out a few calls and Bury responded.
“I am still a Needham player and, essentially, I have signed for a month.
“With Needham going well, the players have done a good job, I could not really expect to get in the team too much.
“But you never know what could happen and I might go back for the run-in and play some games.
“I am out-of-contract in the summer so we will see what happens, but it’s up to me to put questions in the heads of both Ben Chenery and Mark Morsley.”
