Bingham Aiming To Stamp His Claim

21 January 2016

Midfielder ready to play vital role after enduring a frustrating first half of the season.

The likeable Billy Bingham is hoping that he can secure a consistent run in Steve Davis’ first team for the remaining 21 games of the season. The summer signing from Dagenham endured a frustrating first half of the campaign when a troublesome hamstring injury restricted him to just six appearances before his return to fitness in November.

The 25-year-old Londonder returned from his hamstring injury to start away at Bradford City and then retain his place alongside the young James Jones for the next five games before he came out of the team again for the festive fixtures. Steve Davis elected to recall the more experienced David Fox for the games against Shrewsbury and Coventry but with Adam King returning to Swansea City after his loan deal expired, the door re-opened for Bingham at Swindon last weekend.

Billy told the club’s official web-site: “I wanted to establish myself in the team from the start of the season but with the injury coming in August it has been difficult to do that.

“It was frustrating to get injured a month into the new season and it coming at a new club but it is part parcel of football and something you have to get on with.

“You can’t look back at things too much, that’s gone and you have to go from here. I want to stamp my claim now and start to play the way I know I can.

Billy added: “I have got to take my opportunities and I know I can get forward and add goals to my game. I don’t know why that hasn’t quite happened for me here, but it is something I want to bring to the team.”
