Westley the key in Myrie-Williams arrival

Winger looking forward to working with Boro boss

BORO new boy Jennison Myrie-Williams says the opportunity to work with manager Graham Westley is one he is relishing.

The winger joined Boro this summer after a spell north of the border with St Johnstone to boost Westley’s options on the left wing ahead of the new npower League 1 season.

Myrie-Williams has enjoyed two run outs so far this summer playing in Boro’s 1-0 wins over both Hitchin and Fulham and the former Bristol City man says he is looking forward to improving as a player under the tutelage of Westley.

When asked what it was that attracted him to the Lamex Stadium, Myrie-Williams stated: “The manager; his drive, ambition and belief for the club and his belief in me.

“He’s the sort of person you want to work under, he’ll drive you to be better; he’s never happy even if you’ve had a good game he’ll still find something that you need to do better and that’s the mentality you want.”

The 23-year-old saw a move to Oxford United fall through back in January because he’d already played for two different clubs in the same season leaving Myrie-Williams desperate for the new season to get underway.
