Malone's Parting Shot

Last updated : 02 June 2012 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Scott Malone has fired a parting shot towards AFC Bournemouth and Paul Groves following his departure to Millwall as part of the swap deal bringing Josh McQuoid to Dean Court.

Malone, was quoted is in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "There must have been a reason why I didn’t play in the last two games of the season. I was clearly not in his plans but have had the last laugh as I am moving up a league. Lee Bradbury brought me in and I owe him some of the credit for giving me the opportunity to get this move. But I probably would have gone even if he had still been here so you can’t say a change in manager swayed my decision. I had a meeting with the new manager a couple of days after the last game of the season when I was given my programme for the summer. He told me to come back in July and said I was part of the squad. Since then, he hasn’t spoken to me about the swap deal. A phone call would have been nice. There were a few ups and downs during my time at Bournemouth and it wasn’t all plain sailing. There was a time when I wasn’t playing particularly well and could have gone back to Wolves but I stuck at it and have got my reward".
