Wanderers the top priority insists Grenada star Pierre
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.
