Met aiming ‘to do one better’ this time round says Parker
Cardiff Metropolitan University reached the quarter finals of the Nathaniel MG Cup for the second year in succession after beating Carmarthen Town 3-1 and Tim Parker aims “to do one better” this season after reaching the Final in last year’s competition.
Met lost to TNS in the Final 1-0 after Jamie Mullan had scored the winner but the forward was only focusing on Tuesday nights game.
“The main thing is to get the result through to the next round,” he said, “so, yeah happy to get game time and it was good to get a goal at the end, so yeah it was all good.”
The game marked the return of Adam Roscrow, who was playing his first game since August.
“He’s a great addition, loads of pace he was unlucky with the penalty but his goals will come yet.”
“Yeah, main thing I wanted was just a chance, because I have high confidence that I will, who’s going to bury it and I did, so it was nice. (Adam) Roscrow put it on a plate really so couldn’t really miss.”
“We got to the final last year so obviously want to do one better, so hopefully get some more game time and see what happens then.”
Parker, who scored his first goal for Cardiff Met in first team competitions felt that he could build up on his performance and get himself into the starting line-up.
“Yeah, hope so, just got to keep pushing my way. Obviously, we got such a strong squad that it is hard to compete, but yeah it is good.”
With Rhys Thomas and Chris Baker the other scorers, Cardiff Met will not find out until next week who they will get in the competition after the completion of the Northern fixtures.
“It’s class. It is good for everyone to get on the scoresheet and the main thing is we are through to the next round.”
