McGivern - I've Enjoyed My Time Here

Defender Pleased With How Move Has Panned Out

4 May 2018

Ryan McGivern has loved his time at The Energy Check Ground and he's pleased to have got some vital minutes under his belt in recent weeks.

The vastly experienced defender arrived at SN1 on a free transfer in March in order to provide some much-needed defensive cover.

He has since gone on to make five outings for Town and, with his contract due to expire after tomorrow's season finale against Accrington Stanley (3pm Kick-Off), the 28-year-old has looked back on his stint in Wiltshire with fond memories.

"It has been good to play games," he told the local media.

"It has been an up and down season for myself personally so to finish with a couple of games under my belt has been good.

"I don't want the season to end, I want to keep playing but that's football and I'll get a break and then go again next season.

"I've really enjoyed my time here. You can tell that the club has everything in place and, for me, it finds itself in League Two but it probably shouldn't be."

"There's players in the dressing room in contract, there's players out of contract so every game you go into there's always something on the line.

"For me personally and for some of the other boys it is a case of doing as best as you can and showing the manager what you are capable of to earn a contract and, if not, there's always other people watching you.

"You've always got to give your best and do yourself justice.

"I've really enjoyed my time here.

"You can tell that the club has everything in place and, for me, it finds itself in League Two but it probably shouldn't be.

"Chesterfield and Port Vale, who both came down last season, they've struggled this season as well and it has been a massive disappointment for us, but everything is in place to go again for next season.

"It has got to be a season where we really push on and try to get out of the league."
