Myrie-Williams: "I just want to play"
Jennison Myrie-Williams was unveiled as the Bit o' Red's lastest in The Showgrounds at half-time during the draw with Shamrock Rovers.
The English winger knows Micky Adams well having played under him at both Port Vale and Tranmere Rovers during his career.
Myrie-Williams will wear number 31 for the Bit o’Red.
He was a guest on the Rovers Review last night on Ocean FM and talked about how the move came about: “I left Scunthorpe at the end of last season so I have just been keeping myself fit over the summer. I had a few offers to go to certain clubs but they weren’t right at the time. Micky got in touch and said that he’d love to get me here until the end of the season and obviously he’s someone that I know. I’ve got a lot of respect for him and I trust him as a manager. It was something I saw as a positive move and I am looking forward to it.
“He spoke to me a few times last week telling me what the place is like, what the lads are like and the people and he sold the club to me. The people that I have met so far are nice and welcoming. He told me it is a great club and just come and get my head down and I’d do well. His style is very professional, he wants to play the game the right way. And most of all he is honest, you know what you are getting from him and that’s all you can ask from a manager.”
The new signing was impressed with his first impressions on the club having arrived on Friday: “The facilities are great and the ground is good. I really enjoyed the game, the first half was really positive and we could have been one or two goals up. I was impressed with the standard of football and the boys done well.”
He also talked about what his hopes are bet ween now and the end of the season: “My style is very attacking and positive. I like to create goals and score goals simply, and work hard for the team. I want to help the club climb the league, looking at the game last night I can see that the team shouldn’t be where they are so hopefully we can get up to a respectable position at the end of the season. I just want to play football and enjoy it.”
