Gregory On Signing For Cherries

Last updated : 02 July 2011 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

New boy, Steven Gregory, speaks about his move from AFC Wimbledon to AFC Bournemouth, being quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I was 21 when Wycombe released me and I did a personal training course and I thought that was the end of me as a professional. It is difficult to get back into it. I went to Hayes and Yeading and started working full-time in the gym. I decided I wanted to give football another go so I quit the gym full-time but continued to work part-time as a personal trainer. I concentrated a lot on the football and, hopefully, it will pay off at Bournemouth. I have been given my chance. I am really hungry to do well and Lee Bradbury has recognised that. He has been magnificent. There have been a few difficulties in the past week but he has been persistent to get me. I can only repay him by doing what I can on the pitch. I can say ‘thank you’ but it doesn’t mean anything unless I perform, so that is what I am aiming to do".
