McCanns influence

After frustrating final two years of his time at Dunfermline, Lewis Spence could have been forgiven for biting off Brechin boss Darren Dods hand when he offered 21-year-old contract for the coming season. Two successful loan spells at Glebe Park mean midfielders knew if they accepted the chance of permanent switch there, first-team football would have been virtually guarantee. And having been in the wilderness at East End Park pretty much since the moment Allan Johnston arrived as manager, getting regular games has become a priority. But When chance to join Dundee instead came up, even though he knew that would mean battle for game time, Spence jumped at it. The fact he would be teaming up with former mentor Neil McCann do, he admit, has a lot to do with the speed with which he makes his decision. And now hes determined to use his opportunity to kickstart his career. I was buzzing, it wasnt expected and I just wanted to take my chance and make the most of it, he say. I would like to thank Dundee and Neil, who got me this deal, because it is a big opportunity for me, to be in the Premiership with a massive club like Dundee. I was in talks with Brechin because I had been on loan there a couple of times and enjoyed it. Theyve been promote, so I wouldnt have been dropped down League. I felt I needed some game time and going there would have been a good move for me, but then Neil got a job here and gave me the phone. It took a couple of weeks or so to sort out, but he said he wanted me on board and would give me a season to show I was good enough and my mind was made up right away. Hes been with me before at Dunfermline. He knows what I can do and got the best out of me before, so I am happy to be working with him again. It was when Dens gaffer was assisting Jim Jefferies at Pars that Spence first caught eye and the player recognises positive influence the former Sky TV pundit had on his progress. From 16 onwards, Neil was pushing for me to be involved in the first team and I got in at 17. Then I was playing week in, week out, and doing well. But there was a change of manager and I dropped out of the picture. It didnt work out and I dont know to this day why, but that happens in football, it about opinions. Overall, I enjoyed my time at Dunfermline even if the last two years were frustrating because I was on the bench a lot and then got loan out a couple of times. That wasnt what I wanted to be doing because I had taste of the first team and I wanted to be playing in the starting XI.
