Ronan hoping for more game time with the Saddlers

7 September 2018

On-loan Saddlers midfielder Connor Ronan is hoping he can settle down at the club after an unsettled start to his professional playing career.

Since making his senior debut for Wolves at the age of 17, Ronan has gone on to make 13 first-team appearances for his parent club.

But following a back injury towards the end of the 2016/17 season, his playing time has been limited.

Last season he headed out on loan to fellow League One side Portsmouth, where he made 17 appearances, but Ronan admits he now wants to settle down somewhere.

“In the last few seasons I have had a lot of being in and out of teams, with an appearance here and an appearance there,” he said.

“Now I just want to settle down somewhere and try and get in the team and stay there, playing as much football as possible.

“For a young lad like me I think that is important. I just need to try and get as many games under my belt as possible now really.

“It was a good experience for me to go to Portsmouth last season.

“I had never been on loan before. I had been part of the first-team at Wolves previously but it was always a case of whether I was going to be on the bench or in the squad.

"At Portsmouth, I knew I was going to be in the squad every week, whether I was playing or not. It was good to be part of a first-team where you knew you were always in with a chance of playing.

“I knew if I wasn’t starting I had a good chance of coming on and that was important for me to get a good first experience of that.

“I was happy with my time down there. I didn’t play as much as I would have liked but hopefully I can get more games in here and just keep progressing.”
