Steve Hopper caught up with Blue Stars Sean McCafferty to get his thoughts on Mondays game against Burradon & New Fordley; along with his thoughts on the campaign so far and what to expect with the remainder of the season.
I began by asking Sean for his thoughts on Mondays game against Burradon & New Fordley: "I thought it was a tight game on a tough pitch, it was difficult to play football and create chances but I thought we battled hard."
"It's obviously frustrating when you don't win, especially in front of a home crowd. It's been a strange season for everyone and hard to get into a rhythm, that said, we can't use that as an excuse and need to improve collectively."
As the game was heading into the latter stages you made a superb save to keep the score level, so as a goalkeeper what do you love about your position? "Not much when it's as cold as it was on Monday. It's nice as a keeper when you make saves, especially if it contributes towards a win or draw. So I'd say a solid performance that helps us get the points is what I enjoy."
I went on to ask Sean about who is goalkeeping inspiration was: "I didn't really have one growing up to be honest, I didn't start playing as a keeper until i was 15 or 16. Shay Given was at Newcastle around the time, so I'd probably say that's who I'd of watched the most."
I moved on to Sean's expectations for the remainder of the season heading into 2021 so I asked Sean what can we expect to see from the team heading into the new year and Sean with determination in his answer responded with: "I'm hoping we get on a run of winning games and climb up the table. For the size and potential of the club that needs to happen, and I'm sure everyone will be trying everything to make that happen".
Next up the Blue Star travel to Wallington this Saturday.
