Donnelly - This Is What I Needed

Rory Donnelly is another one liking his choice of new club after he signed for Gillingham a couple of weeks back after a static few years at Swansea.
Donnelly barely got a look in at first team football at the Swans and loan spells at Coventry (a very ill fated one) and Tranmere were the only real way he was getting first team football whilst he was at the Swans
It was time to move on with the Swans now looking elsewhere to fill the roles that Donnelly could have covered and so it was no surprise when the player and the club parted company at the end of last season.
Donnelly though is back with a new club and ready to get back into the action as he explained “Justin (Edinburgh) has been trying to get me for a while and I came and talked to him and he told me about how the club are going to be run this season, fighting for promotion, so I was keen to come.
“I would like to have played more (since moving from Cliftonville) which is why I have come here to get more games.
“I could have gone somewhere else, where I could have taken it easy and chilled out but I want to play football and am happy to be here.
“It is a fresh start and what I needed. I needed to play football and will get my opportunity here. I am not saying it is going to be easy – I will have to work hard for it."
