  • Bryan Prunty after victory over Arbroath 

    Saturday, January 30, 2010 5:22:32 PM

    Bryan Prunty was disappointed when his first goal was chalked off today against Arbroath.

    My initial thought was that I couldn’t have scored a better goal, and I immediately ran away with my hand in the air thinking I had scored. Then gutted when the referee’s whistle went and realised that he had decided to disallow the goal. At first I didn’t know if it had been for a handball, or someone straying off-side but I was disappointed the goal didn’t count. I have now discovered that the referee disallowed the goal for dangerous play due to my foot being raised, but how many games in the past have we seen other players scoring overhead kicks and these are replayed as goals of the season.
    Nevertheless, it has been a good start since I moved to Alloa Athletic with six goals in my first four games with the club. Two goals against Arthurlie, two against Bo’ness, which were both friendlies and more importantly two goals in our last two league games against Stenhousemuir and Arbroath. I don’t set myself any targets but I am glad to be playing in a team where I will look to be playing every week and in the first couple of games I have been rewarded. The Manager has strengthened the team in the January transfer window and with six points in two games we have got a chance and we are looking strong. I will look to play as many games as I can and score as many goals as I can. The Manager has brought me here to score goals and I will look to reward him and personally for me it has been a great start with two goals in two games and six points. We go to Brechin next Saturday which will be tough. I have been there with a few clubs and it’s always a difficult place to go but we are playing with a bit of confidence now so hopefully we will take that into next weeks game.

    Bryan cannot believe goal disallowed
