Craig Conway says that whilst he is pleased to reach 500 games, he's now focussed on adding to that number.

Conway appeared for the 500th time in his club career at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night, and celebrated reaching that milestone with a goal.

Craig's first appearance came at his first club Ayr back in 2003, and looking back on his last 15 years from starting out in Scotland, the 33-year-old admits he's proud of the achievement.

“It’s unbelievable to reach 500 games, it means a lot to me. It’s a lot of games to play, and a few years ago I might not have thought it would have been possible," he told iFollow Rovers.

"It’s been brilliant; I’ve really enjoyed every one of the 500 games in different ways but, at the end of the day, I want to win football games. It was good to get a goal at Bournemouth though. 

“I think when you look back, it’s a lot of games. I think that when the disappointment of tonight’s result wears off, we’ll reflect on a good performance against a really good side. I think I’ll look back on my 500 games positively, and hopefully there are many more to come."

It was an impressive display from Conway in midweek and the Scot is now hoping that his performance will result in further first team outings in the near future.

“I think I can always say that I always give everything. Even at 33, I still want to run around and work really hard. I want to give a little bit back, and scoring on Tuesday hopefully helps me," he added.

"I’m always hungry to play; it’s brilliant to look at 500 games but I want to play more. At the end of the day, it’s up to me to work hard and wait for my chance."
