Wan­der­ers the top pri­or­ity in­sists Gre­nada star Pierre

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

AARON Pierre can­not wait for his next taste of in­ter­na­tional ac­tion – but in­sists Wy­combe Wan­der­ers is his num­ber one fo­cus,

The Chair­boys de­fender made his de­but for Gre­nada in a 3-1 World Cup qual­i­fy­ing de­feat to Haiti in Septem­ber, then played his sec­ond game in the re­turn match soon af­ter.

De­spite start­ing his in­ter­na­tional ca­reer with a dou­ble de­feat, Pierre is con­fi­dent of be­ing in the mix next time Gre­nada are in ac­tion.

He said: “The feed­back I have had has been very pos­i­tive and they were very fond of me. I was pleased with both games I played and they were very pleased with me. It was just a shame we didn’t get through.

“It was a real ex­pe­ri­ence go­ing out there. It’s a very small is­land and very friendly. I can re­mem­ber go­ing out there with my fam­ily as a kid, but I hadn’t been there for a while. I took the op­por­tu­nity to catch up with some peo­ple when I was out there.

“I didn’t know any­one else in the team through, apart from An­thony Straker, who plays for York City. We were the only two English-based play­ers, all the oth­ers were lo­cal guys.

“I can’t wait to play for them again, al­though un­less it’s a big tour­na­ment or com­pe­ti­tion, I’m fully fo­cused on Wy­combe Wan­der­ers.”

Al­though those de­feats mean Gre­nada will not be in ac­tion for a while, Wy­combe found them­selves with­out a game last Satur­day due to an in­ter­na­tional break.

Op­po­nents Notts County, who were due to visit Adams Park, asked for the game to be called off due to calls-ups from their squad, with the game be­ing re­ar­ranged for Tues­day, De­cem­ber 15.

In­stead, Wy­combe played a friendly against Leeds United on Fri­day night, which they lost 2-0. They re­turn to ac­tion this Satur­day with a League Two trip to AFC Wim­ble­don.
