Jay May: "So much potential at Margate"
Margate striker Jay May says the clubs blip in form last month was only temporary and that the squad have found their way again after wins over Staines and Merstham in the League saw them move just five points off the play offs.
May played a vital role in both wins and is looking forward to the Gate extending that run when they travel to Lowestoft Town on Saturday.
“We have had two very good wins already in November over Staines and Merstham and hopefully we can build on these when we go to Lowestoft on Saturday”.
“The win at Merstham was particularly pleasing because I think the weather conditions and the way Merstham play made it very difficult but we dug in and got the result which is the most important”.
The 31 year old striker joined the Blues from Hythe Town in the summer to link up with former team mate Steve Watt amongst other former team mates from his time at Maidstone United and he is enjoying his time on the South coast.
“It is a great club Margate and it has so much potential to be bigger and I think under Steve and his management team we will do that but right now stability is the key theme around the club and I think it is 100% moving in the right direction”.
The striker admits that the FA Trophy delay which saw Margate’s game last weekend postponed due to expectant opponents Bowers & Pitsea being charged with fielding a player whilst under suspension was a kick in the teeth to the squad who hoped to continue their revival in form.
“It is very frustrating for all the boys and everyone at the club in general. As a player you want to play every game and to have one postponed so late for a reason out of our control is very frustrating”.
“From a club point of view as well I know we had lots of off field activities which had to be cancelled as well so all in all very frustrating but we need to make sure as players that when a decision is made we are ready to play whoever the FA tell us to”.
