Shroot praises wide men

New signing sees quality on the wings at Boro

New signing Robin Shroot says he thinks Boro’s quality on the wings will be crucial to any success the club has this season.

Stevenage have an abundance of talent on the wing – including Shroot who himself played left midfield in the second half at Dagenham on Saturday after spending the first half more centrally – and the midfielder believes the strength Boro have out wide will be beneficial come the start of the season.

“I play wherever the gaffer tells me to,” the former Birmingham City man said. “My favourite position is central. I’m not the biggest and it depends on the opposition you’re playing against, but if I can contribute to the team in any shape or form I’ll do my best.

“(Playing centrally), it helps having players like [Scott] Laird, Lawrie [Wilson] and Jennison [Myrie-Williams] out wide. They’ve got pace, they’re strong, and if you can get the ball and work it out to them, Ronnie [Henry] too, then the delivery into the box is going to be good and that’s going to be crucial for us.”
