Park Life – Nick Taylor spends some time chatting to Roman Golobart about his return from Tranmere Rovers.


Just over a month ago strapping, Spanish centre half Roman Golobart made his way over to the Wirall on a month long loan deal at Tranmere Rovers.

He arrived with the intentions of providing cover for injured Rovers defender Ash Taylor who was said to be out for four weeks.

Despite Taylor returning from injury just 10 days into Golobart’s stay, the 20-year-old said that he enjoyed his time at Prenton Park.

“It gave me a kind of mental break because pre-season is always tough with the pace of the training sessions and to go to Tranmere was just something different.

“The situation with the injured player was different from when I went on loan to Inverness last season but,  I can understand why he came back in because he is the club’s centre back.

“I’m back here now though and I’m fighting to get some minutes.”

Golobart added that he is happy to come to Christopher Park for his daily duties despite having a good time at Tranmere.

“It is great to learn from guys like Antolin Alcaraz and Ivan Ramis because they are doing what I want to be doing in the future.

“Playing in the Under 21s is good as well because you can experiment with things that the gaffer teaches you in first team training.

“It is good for everyone who plays in that team because they can focus on playing football which is good for development and is without the pressure of something like the Premier League.

“The way we played against Crewe was amazing in the second half.

“They couldn’t get the ball off us in the second half and that performance was a testament to the hard work that Graham Barrow and Dennis Lawrence have put in.”

With Tranmere being his second loan spell in the last 12 months, Golobart took time to reflect on his six months at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

“When I was there I was getting 3,000 or so people cheering at me which was really nice.

“People would text me and send me messages on Twitter and Facebook with their support and encouragement.

“That is a feeling I’m looking to re-create at the DW Stadium because I can see the passion of our fans and want to be a part of it.”
