I'm raring to go - Brogan

Last updated : 07 August 2009 By Bigrich.....
After spending nearly 18 months out injured, Stephen Brogan is now just wanting to get on the pitch and earn his place back in the team.

Paddy speaks about his rehab and hopes for the season in todays Advertiser; "Pre-season has gone alright and I'm just happy to be back playing and training every day. It was a bit tough because my body has been getting used to it. I've had a few problems here and there but nothing too bad."

"It's a good feeling to be part of things properly rather than just being the one who is just hanging around. I want to get back to my old self and have people talking about 'Brogan the footaballer' rather than 'Brogan, who broke his leg,' which I've had for the last 18 months. It's not nice when you get asked 'how's your leg?' all the time. It's annoying. I want people talking about me for the right reasons now."

"It's a strong squad, We're one of the favourites to go up and rightly so. I think we will be in the top three."

"The fans are probably expecting a lot of me this season because of what I did before the injury and rightly so. I'm 21 and I'm not really seen as a lad any more. I've got to get back and prove to myself and everyone else that I should be in the team and the only way to do that is by doing it on the pitch."

"I've had a hamstring injury so I didn't play last week against Manchester City as a precaution. Obviously it's a setback because of the timing of it but I hope to be a big part of things like I was before I got injured. I'm raring to go." he added.
