‘It’s great to be back’ - Pring

Cameron Pring was back on the pitch for the first time this year as he helped the Under-23s overcome Birmingham City’s development group 2-1.

The left-back played an hour as planned before he was substituted in the win on Tuesday (April 27th).

City battled back from a goal down thanks to Louis Britton’s lob and Sam Pearson’s late winner.

This was Pring’s first match action since returning to City from loan at Portsmouth in the first half of the season. He played 15 times in all competitions, playing his part in Pompey's League One promotion push, but he picked up a hamstring injury in January which had ruled him out until now.

“I feel good after 60 minutes in the legs,” said Pring. “It was a frustrating injury coming back from loan so it’s good to finally get some minutes. The team did alright to come back from 1-0 down – after I came off – and they got the job done. All in all, it’s great to be back.

“It was a scrappy first half, we defended a lot, so we had to be right on it in terms of our organisation, but the legs feel alright too, so that’s another positive.”

It’s been a period of recovery in the gym for Pring since his injury but he says he feels as fit as ever.

He continued: “It was frustrating because I felt like I had my chance to play and prove myself, so it was a setback at the worst time. The last few months I’ve been in the gym, trying to stay as fit as possible and with 60 minutes with the Under-23s I feel fit, I feel good, so those last few months in the gym have definitely helped me.”

The Under-23s will top the Professional Development League South table, meaning they will enter this year’s play-off battle and compete for a place in the PDL final.

And Pring hopes to play his part, adding: “I feel if I can be involved in the play-offs I can then push on for pre-season and see where I am then.”
