Proctor: Hopefully plenty to come from me

30 August 2019

Paul Hurst added Jamie Proctor to his attacking options on Friday, and the striker is looking forward to making an impact for the Iron.

The targetman signed on a season-long loan from Rotherham United, following recent spells at Carlisle United and Bolton Wanderers.

Proctor told iFollow Iron: “I’m buzzing. It’s all come about quickly, and there’s been a lot of talk over the last couple of days.

“I spoke to the manager on Thursday, and he said he’s been interested for a while, so it seems like a good place for me to come and I can’t wait to get started.

“He (Paul Hurst) didn’t have to say much to be honest, I know enough about the club as it is. I know a few of the lads, I know some of the staff, and my manager at Rotherham (Paul Warne) is good mates with the manager here and he had positive things to say.

“I look at the squad and I think the position in the league is definitely false, we’ll start climbing the table hopefully sooner rather than later.

“Looking at the group here there’s some real quality, so hopefully it’s a good place for me to come, it should be a positive for me and the club as a whole.

“The manager spoke about the wingers, midfielders and how many chances will be created for the forwards, so it’s definitely something I’m looking forward to.”

When asked about what he can offer the team as an individual, Proctor stated: “A little bit of everything really, obviously with my height I can play down the middle as a number nine. At Rotherham this season we’ve been playing as a front three where I can play out on the wing as well and interchange with the other forwards.

“I like to stretch the game, get hold of the ball and bring others into play, but ultimately, I’m here to score goals.”

Having scored against the Iron in the past, Proctor said: “Hopefully there’s going to be plenty more to come from me, both home and away.

“It’s good to get in the building the day before a game, I think there’s no better way to meet the lads - and get used to how everyone plays - than a match situation. I think you can do all the training you want, but a match is how you really see how the lads play.”

On what he hopes to gain from his loan spell with the Iron, Proctor added: “First of all, I just want to get in the team and score as many goals as I can. I want to be part of a team that’s successful, and try to get us up the league.”
