New Yeovil Town defender Mark Little has been speaking to the football podcast Millsy and Mason’s Football Hootenanny about his career so far and what he’s hoping to achieve during his time at Huish Park.
During the chat, he spoke about having to deal with crossing the Bristol divide having played for both Rovers and City as well a career that has taken in big sides like Peterborough and Bolton as well as his recent stance on social media abuse and the racist nature of that abuse that he and others at all levels have received.
When asked about the expectations for the season, Little was adamant that the squad want to be nearer the top than the bottom of the table.
“It (the target) is definitely not to stabilise, because I don’t expect to be at the bottom of the table.. I’m really excited to start the season, every day in training and in the game recently, I’m looking around thinking ‘this is actually really good’.
“I’ve been really impressed with the team, the players I’m playing with the standard of football we are playing. I’m enjoying it.”
The full back was honest enough to note than it’s likely that the Glovers aren’t competing with some sides in the division from a budget point of view, but that it was still the club’s intention to battle with the higher spending sides.
“If we are in contention with them (higher spending sides), that’s my personal aim and I hope that’s what the rest of the lads will be doing.”
“I believe our squad will give a good account of ourselves and me, going out there leading it, I’m pretty sure I’m not going to be accepting anything else to be honest.”
“I’m excited for the season, I really am , I’m going to be realistic about it, if we win the league, I will be very very happy because that would mean we would have ‘done a Leicester’ and beat all the top money spenders… and why not!?”
