New Rovers signing Ross Lamb has revealed that it didn’t take much to convince him to make a permanent switch to Whitestone Park.
Having plied his trade with Vale of Leithen, Lamb has spoken of his happiness at pulling on the red and white jersey once more following a successful loan-spell in Peebles, with his decision to leave Victoria Park made easier due to his positive experiences in the dressing room at the Rovers, speaking to peeblesrovers.com, he said;
“Yeah, I’m really happy to be back. Now, I’m just looking forward to getting started and getting some game-time under my belt.”
“I didn’t need a lot of convincing to come back to be honest! I really enjoyed being here whilst I was on loan, and I know a lot of the guys in the team which always helps when you’re joining a new club.”
“I would describe myself as an all-round midfielder, I can add something to the team. I’m a good passer of the ball and can start a lot of moves.”
With a new season quickly approaching on the horizon, Lamb has spoken of his belief that the Rovers team are better equipped to face the challenges awaiting in the upcoming East of Scotland season;
“It was tough last year, what with it being a new team at the Rovers. It’s always hard adapting to a new league.
“But, if we can get a good pre-season behind us then we’re certainly capable of pushing a little higher.”
