Mills disappointed

Last updated : 28 August 2009 By Bigrich.....

With the Captains arm band this year being given to center back Ian Sharps, Pablo spoke to the Tizer about his time in the job:

"I'm not going to dwell on it too much, it was a bit disappointing but it's the gaffer's decision. All I can do is get my head down and concentrate on my performances," he said "Ian is a good player and he's a bit more experienced than myself. The manager thought he was the best to take us forward.

"Last season I thought I did quite well. When the gaffer gave me the captaincy, he said he wanted me to take more responsibility. I think it brought me on as a player and matured me a bit more and made me a bit more consistent in what I do."

Pablo added: "To be honest, being skipper didn't change me a lot as a player. I've always been talkative on the pitch but it did bring more confidence out of me.

"It was an extra responsibility and I thought I handled it well. I must say that being back as a regular player, there's no weight off my shoulders because my responsibilities to the team remain the same. Captain or no captain, the side still needs leaders."

Pablo, is one of the players who have seen the club go through the points deductions, and financial difficlties in his time at the club.

"It's nice to have been one of the ones to survive and go through the changes and I think the club is going in the right direction now," he said,

"To be fair, there's always been a decent squad here but we've brought some good players in this time.

"It's true we haven't been playing our best in the league but we've been collecting the three-pointers and that's the sign of a good side. If we keep doing that then the fans will be happy at the end of the season.

"When the new lads have fully settled, you'll see more from us.".
