Former York City striker Ryan Bowman insists he can deal with the pressure of becoming the main goal-hope at relegated Torquay United.

"I felt that me and Wes Fletcher were developing a partnership in League Two last season" - Ryan Bowman
Whilst at Bootham Crescent, Bowman failed to match his scoring exploits at Hereford United during the previous campaign and has now been recruited by the Devon club on a two-year deal.

The 22-year-old joins the Conference Premier newcomers after netting eight times in 43 appearances for the Minstermen last season.

"There is a bit of pressure involved in coming to a club where you are expected to be the main man and where you are expected to score goals," Bowman told the Western Morning News. "But I feel that I've got the ability to do that - I proved it at Hereford, and I'm looking forward to the chance to do it again.

"I know that I scored goals at Conference level, and I felt that me and Wes Fletcher were developing a partnership in League Two last season," he added. "I had to miss three games after a stupid sending-off at Bristol Rovers quite early in the season, and we were starting to score quite a few goals together when I got another straight red at Southend in November - and although I got back in the York team, I couldn't get a good run going."
