Blooms excited by Rock 'N' Roll Football

20 May 2013

Vice-captain Matt Bloomfield says he cannot wait to finally play under Gareth Ainsworth.

The 29-year-old missed the majority of last season through injury and his last appearance came back in August, before Ainsworth took over the reins at Adams Park.

However, the midfielder has seen first-hand the effect that Ainsworth has had on the squad and is excited by the prospect of being a part of Rock ‘N’ Roll Football.

“I haven’t even played a game under Gaz’s management yet so that will be great in itself because he’s someone I admire and respect massively,” Bloomfield told Chairboys Player.

“I always knew he would make a good manager and so it has proved. The lads have taken on board what he’s given to them and really kicked on in the second half of the season.

“I’m excited about that because we’ve shown that we’ve got some good young players and some good experienced players as well.”

Blooms, who has made close to 300 appearances for the Blues, is a popular character within the Wanderers dressing room and he stressed how important it is for the experienced players in the squad to help their younger team-mates progress.

He added: “It’s our job as experienced players to help the young lads and that’s part of my job.

“I see that as something I bring to the table as well as football. I try to help them and guide them through as much as I possibly can.”
