Parry targeting more goals

6 September 2012

Winger keen to keep hitting the net to help Town

Winger Paul Parry wants to continue weighing in with his fair share of goals this season after an impressive start to his Shrewsbury Town career.
The former Wales international, who recently turned 32, has scored two of Town's three goals in League One this season with his thunderous matchwinning strike against Preston North End followed by a poacher's effort in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Stevenage.
"It's been a while since I was top scorer at any club," said Parry. "It's nice to get off the mark early and hopefully I'll continue for the rest of the year.
"If I can continue scoring at the same rate I am at the moment, I should get into double figures. I just want to keep scoring and if I do then hopefully the team will do well." 
Parry has enjoyed the early weeks of his Greenhous Meadow career with the former Cardiff City and Preston man as hungry as ever for success.
He said: "I've come to a club that's going in the right direction. 

"I've certainly not come here to rest on my laurels and see my career out. I want to achieve something as the one thing I've actually not done in my career is win something."  
Parry added he was encouraged by Town's early season form and he's now looking forward to Saturday's visit to Notts County.
"We've made a good start but I think we should have picked up a few more wins," he stressed. 

"We should have hung on and got three points against Tranmere and then last Saturday I thought we did enough as an away team down at Stevenage, a tough place to go. We created a lot of chances and in my book we should have won.
"There's a lot of quality in the changing room and if they can add a bit of belief to what's there then I'm sure this season can be successful."
