Pack can't wait to make Whaddon Road return

6 October 2014

Bristol City midfielder Marlon Pack says he cannot wait to make his first competitive return to Cheltenham Town for Wednesday night’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy second round tie.
The 23-year-old spent two seasons at Whaddon Road after a successful long-term loan spell from Portsmouth, establishing himself as a firm favourite with Robins fans.
He made 132 starts and 13 substitute appearances, scoring 16 goals, helping Mark Yates’ side reach the play-offs for two seasons in succession before joining City in the summer of 2013.
“I wouldn’t say my time at Cheltenham was the making of me because I have not achieved anything yet,” Pack said.
“But it was a stepping stone for me, shaping me into the player and the person I wanted to be and I will always be thankful to the fans and people at the club for that.
“It was great for me and I have fond memories of my time there.”
Pack was back at Whaddon Road for a pre-season friendly in July, which Bristol City won 4-1.
He joined the action as a late substitute, having just undergone surgery to remove wisdom teeth.
“It was a strange one for me with the tooth saga, but I was lucky to be able to play in some capacity,” Pack said.
“This match will be different, being competitive and in front of the TV cameras, so I would love to play a part.”
