Dylan Morgan has said that he’s settled in well at Huish Park and he’s set himself a 10-goal target for the season.
Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Jack Killah he said that having some familiar faces at the club has helped him hit the ground running.
“It’s been brilliant, this is the environment you want to be in and I’m just happy to be here, I’m taking every day as it comes, the lads have been brilliant and I’m just happy to be honest.”
Having made the move across from Taunton, he’s travelled a well trodden path with both Jake Wannell and Jay Foulston also making the move from Wordsworth Drive.
“I knew it would take a couple week to get my body back into the flow of things – I’ve been full time before, so I knew how it would affect me – but it takes a couple of weeks, but I’ve got my body there, I’m used to it, I’ve been taking care of myself off the pitch as well, because you’ve got to… i’m good to go”
“It makes it easier coming into the team when there’s people there that you already know, they’ve been a great help, got their arm around me early doors and it’s a great bunch to be a part of”
Going into this weekend’s game, the winger was happy to admit that defeat against Maidstone wasn’t enjoyable, but that it was full focus going forward to Tonbridge.
“You never want to lose a game of football, but if you take the positives out of it, lose now, it kicks everyone to go on another big run, so that’s what we are going to try and do”
“As far as 3G [pitches] go, I think there’s is the best, I’ve been there a couple of times with Taunton before and it’s a nice surface, so we’ll be able to do what we do, there’s no excuses from us, we’ll get there, it’s the same for everyone on the day, we’ve just got to be better.”
“I’ve been there a couple of times, I’ve been quite lucky to beat them, I think, every time I’ve played them [Ed: three wins and a draw, actually, Dylan, but we don’t mind] , they’re a good club, they do things right, they try and play, so we have just got to go there and get the job done”
“I already love the club, I just want to do the best I can every time I play”
“We’ve got good characters in the team, they’re not to going to let anyone not turn up on the day, they’re going to make sure everyone’s at it early doors, we’re going to go there and try and do what we do, and we know if we turn up and do what we do best, we’ll have too much for them”
With the season’s end on the horizon, Morgan said that there was always going to be pressure as league leaders, but the group as a whole was prepared for that, and he himself wants to make sure he’s as much of an influence as possible.
“Every team we play against are going to bring their best game, when you’re almost a bigger club in this league and doing well, everyone wants to beat you.
Everyone is going to.bring an extra 10% with them, and we’ve just got to deal with that, which we have, the lads have done it all season, which is taking that pressure and thriving off it.”
“I came here on five goals, now I’m on six, I want to end the season on ten, I said that at the start of the season, so that’s my personal target, it contributes to the team and any contribution I have to the team is important to me, I already love the club, I just want to do the best I can every time I play.”
Here’s to goal number seven at the weekend then, Dylan!
