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

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.”
