Crowds = Funding
November 28, 2014
Talking with members, we agreed that whilst our position in the League table gives us a sound platform for a push in the second half of the season, our relatively small yet positive goal difference is something that needed to be addressed.
Brian and I have been making the point quite strongly at Board Meetings for quite some time. Loan players can be very beneficial to the team of course and they are made very welcome and we wish them well on return to their parent clubs, but the need for a permanent signing in the striker position to add presence and strength with good hold up and passing qualities has been apparent for all to see. Such a player would allow us, in my view, to play our football further up the pitch, get on the end of crosses into the box and bring into play other players, already in the side, with proven goal scoring potential.
Players with these qualities are not easy to find as other football clubs, generally speaking, are looking for the same. Nathan Blissett scored a good goal for Kidderminster here at the Mem just two weeks ago today and so it was a delight to see him turn out for us as our player last Saturday up a Chester and score on his debut for the Club.
It is a credit to our supporters who continue to turn up in their numbers and make it possible for the Board to find the fee necessary to bring Nathan to the football club; thank you.
Well done Nathan and a warm Gas welcome to Bristol Rovers.
