Good signing, adds depth and is a good replacement for Marshall. I've seen him play for Cardiff a couple of seasons ago and he looked decent then!

Not bad to get another Scottish international. Addressing depth is a good thing plus it adds some age to the squad which we kind of needed.

He's a good signing, especially for Championship level. And he's good cover for Marshall. :)

Aint seen the lad play but I hear he's a natural winger which is good as we haven't got many options that offer us natural width and since Marshall is out this could prove to be a good signing.

He'd been on loan at Brighton previously, and their fans were gutted they didn't get him.

A large part of Cardiff's season last year too, played more of a role than Gestede did and look how well he's doing for us recently.

A bright start in his first game as well, which is promising, particularly with our wingers dropping like flies at the minute!

Conway calls time on club career.

Sad to see him go, but I think he’d have been falling down the playing order this season.

Thank you Craig Conway. All the best in finding a new club. I saw him a couple of years ago filling up his Maserati at Chorley Buckshaw Tesco so i am assuming he lives local. Bolton, if they are still around next season, could do a lot worse than give Craig a contract next season. Blackpool too.

I imagine that's pretty much what he was told:
Steve Waggott wrote: Manager Tony Mowbray had offered Conway the chance to stay at the club, given his standing within the dressing room.
“It was fully his decision,” Waggott explained.
“Great credit to Craig, he’s a great character to have around the building, everyone liked him.
“He brings a lot more than just on the pitch.
“He’s great to have around the building. He speaks to the younger players and is a model professional.
“He wants to play regular football, start games, and it’s refreshing to see someone like him to be quite honest.
“He sees the progress and direction of our club and was thinking that if we bring in another four or five, where would that leave him.
“He’s made his decision that he needs to be playing regular football and we support him with that.
“He’s been a great servant for the club and we wish him well going forward because he’s a great guy.”
