Ben Greenhalgh Thanks Supporters For January Award

Ben Greenhalgh  Thanks Supporters For January Award

Player of the Month for January Ben Greenhalgh says it is “lovely” to win personal accolades from the Margate supporters, who he says he has forged a great relationship with.

“It is obviously lovely to win personal accolades from the supporters. The one thing I love about being at Margate is the fans in the bar after the game let you know if you have had a good game and equally if you haven’t”.

Four goals and five assists contributed to the versatile player earning 47% of the vote from Margate supporters, however the player himself admitted that whilst those stats were impressive, he feels as though they could have been even better.

“When you say them stats yeah they sound good but there was a couple of games in January when we didn’t score, so in that respect as a team that is disappointing”.

Now into February and the games continue to come thick and fast for the Blues with a game every Tuesday and Saturday throughout the month, however Greenhalgh thinks it could help build momentum.

“That Velocity Trophy game against Herne Bay at the start of the month was perfect for us to bounce back from the 4-0 defeat at Enfield, and it gave minutes on the pitch to players that hadn’t played as much.

“Looking forward now we have to look and say we are unbeaten in February so far; but we have plenty of games and that allows you to hopefully get some momentum going”.

As the Blues approach the business end of the season he admits that there is no talk of the play-offs within the changing room, however he is a fan of looking at the league table to see where we stand and what lies ahead.

“Everyone is different. I like to look at the league table and see what we have coming up and also look at the fixtures and see who is playing who”.

“It is absolutely one game at a time and the next one is East Thurrock on Saturday which is a really tough place to go”.

Ahead of Saturdays visit to Rookery Hill, Greenhalgh says it has always been a tough place to visit.

“In my previous times going there and playing them it has always been difficult. It seems to always be a scrappy game and sometimes pinching three points with a last minute goal”.

“We will go there knowing it is tough; but also will apply ourselves correctly and fight for the three points”.
