Prendergast Wants To Stay?

Last updated : 17 January 2005 By Kev Robinson
Winger Rory Prendergast, in sparkling form this season, has been at the centre of transfer speculation recently after it was said that Bristol Rovers had put in a bid for him, something that was denied by the League Two club.

Prendergast was supposedly quoted in the Non League Paper over the weekend as to have said that he wanted to leave the club. The following quote is from the NLP:

"Rovers head the queue of League clubs interested in the former York and Barnsley star- although Stanley are keen to hang on to their prize asset.

But the 25-year-old warned manager John Coleman he has a fight on his hands. He said: "I'm definatly interested- you can't turn down the chance of League football. It's a great oppertunity for me to get back into the League and I'm at the age where I should be looking to do that.

"I've done all that I can for Accrington and I feel it's do or die for me at the moment. I'm hoping the clubs can reach an agreement in the next week or two.""

Although, he is quoted on the official Stanley website as saying that he wants to stay at the club.

"Of course league football is attractive but hopefully I can do that with Accrington, it's obvious that is the ambition of everyone at the club and I would love to help make it happen. It is nice to know people are interested but I just want to get on with my job here."

I am sure that all Stanley fans hope that Rory can continue to play his football at the Interlink Express.
