PARKES HOPES FOR LIFT-OFF

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BRIS­TOL ROVERS defender Tom Parkes says he has no re­grets over swap­ping life in the Cham­pi­onship for the Me­mo­rial Sta­dium.

Parkes, 21, was signed for £100,000 from Le­ices­ter City al­most a year ago.

The Rovers cap­tain saw his side bat­tling against rel­e­ga­tion for the ma­jor­ity of last sea­son but says:

“I've got no re­grets at all about the de­ci­sion I made. Things didn’t go to plan straight away, but when I look back on last sea­son I can say that I en­joyed it.

“I’m the cap­tain, but I look to our older play­ers for ex­pe­ri­ence. They also need help from us younger ones at times as well.”

Parkes ad­mit­ted Rovers shaky start to the sea­son is a con­cern but hopes the re­turn of some ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers will help.

“Get­ting the likes of Matt Gill and Matt Har­rold back will be good for us,” he said.
