New boy can be a knockout
Albion have boxed clever in the loan market by landing Craig Conway for 93 days from Premier League newcomers Cardiff City.
The versatile Scottish international winger is poised to add punch to the Seagulls’ attacking options after the blow of losing Andrea Orlandi for up to two months to knee surgery.
Conway keeps in shape by working out in the gym alongside Nathan Cleverly, the former WBO light heavyweight world champion from Wales.
Conway, 28, revealed to The Argus: “I’ve done a bit of boxing. I’ve done that for the last year or so. It keeps you fit and I really enjoy it. I am quite into boxing.
“I have been doing it not actually with Nathan but when he is training.
“It helps your sharpness and to build your fitness. I don’t think there are many sportsmen who are fitter all-round than boxers.
“I think it helps your co-ordination and footwork and stuff.
“I am 5ft 9in but I am quite powerful and quite bulky as well. That is where my nickname of The Bull' comes from.
“I think it was big Jon Parkin who gave it to me. I am not sure why. I’m don’t think I am that chunky, but I have not been able to shake it off. The boys still call me that.”
Conway travelled down from Wales last night to train with Albion today.
He is likely be involved in tomorrow’s visit to Reading (1.15pm), subject to international clearance from the Welsh FA.
Reading hope to have former Albion loan star Wayne Bridge back after a knee injury.
