Oh Shaun Holland…

Squad full of quality....

Straight after Ashford United’s superb win in the F.A Cup on Saturday, we managed to pin down a buoyant Shaun Holland to give us a few words on his thoughts about the squad this season.

Shaun Holland…

After a hard intense pre season, we hammered into the squad that we needed to hit the ground running . It was odd having an FA cup game as the opener but from the off, we set our stall out with the win win win mentality.
I can honestly say that I’ve never been involved with such a good set of lads who want to work and help each other like these boys. The banter is top draw and we have recruited Mitch (big Tom) to govern the fines this season. He’s already taken £5 off me in a week.???.
On a serious note, we all know what an important season this is for Ashford United. The squad has got so much depth that Danny has got a lot more options in the way we set up and of course the dugout is full of quality.
I’m old school and want everyone to concentrate on each game that approaches and not get carried away. I’m looking forward to having Incey (Brett) injury free and Palms back from the “isle of love” to make selection even harder.
I would just like to say a big thank you to all you special people that have rallied around us already this year, from raising money to screaming your heads off on match days. It doesn’t go unnoticed.
So on behalf of myself, Lysey, Welfs, Boothy and all the squad thanks for the support, get behind the boys and enjoy the ride.
