Rhys Browne celebrates his goal against Exeter City PPAUK

Rhys Browne is relishing the chance to play against his former club this weekend.

The tricky winger signed for Grimsby Town at the beginning of last season, making seven substitute appearances in black and white before being loaned to Macclesfield Town.

Things didn’t work out for the Antigua and Barbuda international at Blundell Park, but he is determined to return to Lincolnshire to show what he can do in front of old friends.

Browne said: “You’ve got to be ready for any game but when it’s a club that you’ve come from, it gives you a bit of fire in your belly to go and prove everyone wrong.

“You’ve got to go there with a kind of chip on your shoulder saying I deserve to be playing. However, we just want to focus on the win rather than what’s going on with me.

“I don’t have any problems with anyone at the club and they shouldn’t have any problems with me. It will be nice to see old people and I’ve got a few friends there who I will speak to after we beat them!”

He added: “Paul Hurst brought me in at Grimsby and left so there was a change in manager.

“After that it was a bit of a rollercoaster and not knowing how to settle so it wasn’t anything about not liking it.

“A lot was happening with me off the field and I needed to play some games (out on loan) and take away what was going on. I was in a position where I was away from my family and not playing games.

“I know what I can do and so does the manager here (Darren Way) – that’s why he brought me in.

“When you’re playing games you can’t really complain. It’s what I love doing and what I’ve been doing since I was a baby. The more I do it, the more I’ll enjoy it, get better and keep growing.”
