RORY BACK IN BUSI­NESS

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FOURTH ROUND -

RORY Fal­lon feared his ca­reer was over and claims that is mak­ing him all the hun­grier for suc­cess af­ter sign­ing for Bris­tol Rovers.

The 33-year-old striker last played a com­pet­i­tive game in Oc­to­ber 2014 when he suf­fered a se­ri­ous knee lig­a­ment in­jury.

“There was many a night that I was ly­ing in my bed think­ing it was the end,” said Fal­lon, who joins the Gas on non-con­tract terms.

“I didn’t want to end my ca­reer on an in­jury be­cause I felt I still had a lot to of­fer.

“It has given me a pe­riod of restora­tion and re­flec­tion and that has only in­creased my hunger for the game.

“When some­thing has been taken away from you it only makes you want it more.”
