Pierre will be heading to the Gold Cup with Grenada next month after returning to fitness towards the end of last season.

It will be just the third appearance in the competition for the Caribbean island and while looking to help them succeed first and foremost, he wants to do his best as a representative of Town. A productive tournament would stand Pierre in good stead for next season under Steve Cotterill, and he said: “It’s an amazing feeling. I’m looking forward to it.

“People who have done it before, people I know from other countries, they say that it’s an unbelievable experience. I’m just trying to make sure I’m in a good position to perform the best I can and represent Grenada – and represent the club as well.

“Obviously, I’ll be a representative there in trying to perform for my country, and I’ll do the best I can.”
