William Gros Released

21 August 2014

William Gros has not had his contract renewed by Lee Johnson, the manager revealed in the press conference.

The striker earned a month-to-month contract with the club after scoring the winning goal against Newcastle United in pre-season, but Johnson felt Gros would benefit from first team football which the manager could not assure him of.

He said: "I spoke to Willie last night and he is unlucky really. He has done well and he's shown a good attitude. I felt for him and us, it wasn't quite right.

"At this stage of his career, he needs to be starting games. He's a good player and he did a job for us when he needed to so I wish him well for the future."
