ROSS JENKINS - THE FIRST INTERVIEW

8 March 2013

Ross Jenkins talks to barnetfc.com after joining the club on loan

Ross Jenkins is hoping to make a big impression after joining Barnet on loan from Watford Football Club.

The central midfielder has made 82 appearances for the Hornets and has also spent time on loan in Npower League Two with Plymouth Argyle.

After putting pen to paper on his move Jenkins revealed he is confident he can settle immediately and help the team climb the league table.

“I am very happy to be here, I can’t wait to get out on the pitch and help the team push up the league.

“I went out on loan to Plymouth Argyle earlier this season so I have a feel for the league and hopefully that will allow me to settle quickly.”

After striking up a partnership with Italian club Udinese opportunities have been hard to come by at Watford so Jenkins is looking to take full advantage his time at Underhill.

“We have quite a few players at Watford but they are very good players and I have suffered a few injuries. 

“Because of this I have missed quite a few games in the last two-years so hopefully I can put a string of performances together here at Barnet.”

Jenkins joined last weekend’s opponents Plymouth on loan earlier this season but his time at Home Park was cut short by injury

“My time with Plymouth started really well, I came on when we were 2-0 down, score a goal and we went on to win the game. 

“Unfortunately I picked up an injury against Wycombe Wanderers and had to return to Watford but I feel fit and I am ready to make an impact.”

The 22-year-old scored on his Pilgrims debut which was coincidently against Saturday’s opponents Morecambe and he is hoping to make it two in two against the Shrimps.

“To be honest I just want to play football and if I do that I feel that the team and I can both benefit.

“Hopefully I can score a few goals along the way starting on Saturday against Morecambe who scored against on my Plymouth debut.”

Having worked with Gianfranco Zola at Watford Jenkins also revealed his excitement at working with another footballing legend in Edgar Davids.

“I have worked with Gianfranco at Watford and now I will work with Edgar Davids so I am incredibly lucky because I will have worked with two legends.

“They are two people with a lot of experience so there is a lot that I can learn from them and they can offer a lot to my development.”
