Neill Collins: We played some great football

The Wolves defender Neill Collins – who has been on loan to Preston all season – have now permanented his transfer to the Championship Club.

26-year-old Neill Collins made 97 appearances in Wolves colours during his – exactly on the day – three years at the club, notching ten goals of which five were decisive in terms of being ‘winners’.

Collins was involved and very important in the first half of last season, when Wolves played perhaps their best football in thirty years or more. He says to Wolves official site:

We had so many great days during the first few months of the season, winning games and scoring a lot of goals. That was certainly the best Championship side I’ve been involved in during the first few months of that season. We played some great football and it was with such a young and energetic team. You could see all along what Mick McCarthy was building and the club got their rewards with the title.”

When he didn’t make it to the first team of Wolves this season he wanted to go out on loan. Collins wants to play football and not sit on a bench or play in a reserves team. He plays in the first eleven in Preston and that’s of course what he wants:

Obviously it’s always going to be difficult to leave a club like Wolves and I loved my time there but I’m the sort of player that wants to play regular football and that’s happened for me at Preston.

Paddytheflea thanks Neill Collins for his contribution to Wolves – especially in the first half of last season. He is a fighter and a very good football player. Good luck at Preston in the future.
