Lyons delighted with move

 

Chris Lyons gave his first interview as a Rovers player to Ocean FM last night on The Final Whistle.

The 22 year-old is very excited about the chance to come and play for a club he has always admired.

Speaking of the Bit o’Red Lyons commented: “I am delighted with the move. Ever since I first played at The Showgrounds I loved the club. I love the atmosphere and pitch. Everything about it is good club.

"When the chance to sign came up I jumped on it straight away. Since I was a young lad it was what I always wanted to do, be a full time professional and train every day.

“I can't wait to get started. It's going to be great. I think the team will do well this year, the manager is spot on with what he wants to do and how he wants us to play.”
