Par­ryis buzzing atWasps

East Kilbride News - - SPORT -

Neil Parry reck­ons Al­loa have shown they are wor­thy of their place in the Scot­tish Cham­pi­onship.

The Wasps are the only part-timers in the di­vi­sion and Parry’s per­for­mances, which have seen him be­come sta­tis­ti­cally the best goal­keeper in the en­tire SPFL right now, have been key to them stay­ing above the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

In 14 out­ings he has made the most saves of any goal­keeper in the SPL, with 60 stops in 14 ap­pear­ances and four clean sheets.

“With us go­ing up to the Cham­pi­onship I was al­ways go­ing to be a busy this sea­son,” he said.

“But we started re­ally well and, as the only part-time team in the league, if we can stay above those bot­tom two places it would be a great achievement.

“I’m re­ally pleased with my per­for­mance.

“I’ve never played at this level be­fore but I feel like we are hold­ing our own in the Cham­pi­onship and long may it con­tinue.”

Al­loa are two places off bot­tom spot and have earned wins over Mor­ton and Partick.

Parry added: “We beat Mor­ton the other week and I felt we were un­lucky to lose to Dundee United last mid­week so we’ve showed we are more than ca­pa­ble.

“There are no easy games be­cause we are part-time and I’m there to do ev­ery­thing I can to help us stay up.”
