New Yeovil Town defender Jordan Barnett has been speaking to the Glovers’ official social channels prior to Saturday’s game with FC Halifax Town and says the fans and the squad have really helped him settle into his new surroundings.
The former Notts County man has started both league games for the Green and Whites so far with his performance against Aldershot Town drawing praise from Darren Sarll in his pre-match press conference.
“I’ve really settled in well, the fans have made me feel really welcome, on twitter saying really good things about me, saying I’ve got good passion. I want to show the fans that as well and I want to show them how good of a footballer I can be”
Barnett played a full 90 minutes in the win over Aldershot Town after coming off early against King’s Lynn Town to protect a hamstring niggle, the win was one he cherished, not just because of the result.
“It was a very good win, obviously the first win of the season and it was needed after Saturday’s performance (against King’s Lynn).
“It was a great moment to celebrate with the fans, with the (Lee Collins) flag as well, I know what it means to the fans and the players”
Darren Sarll spoke of an electric atmosphere on the bus back from the game after the Bank Holiday Monday victory a tale backed up by the former Oldham full-back.
“It was very good, all jumping, dancing and singing, something I’ve never really experienced before”
Barnett will almost certainly line up at left-back once again as Yeovil host FC Halifax Town in front of the BT Sport camera’s on Saturday.
