I spoke to Tuesday night’s goalscorer and City forward Kyle Armstrong about his first goal of the season, and the importance of being a team player:
“The goal was a rare on-I don’t get many! Reedo (Michael Reed) held up the ball well and I then went to smash one in at the back post for any runners, the ball had a bit of swerve and the keeper dropped it; couldn’t handle the power. It then hit the ground and spun in, you take what you can get.”
“I started the last two games and thought I did alright, was a bit surprised to be left out but Tosey (James Tose) told me a day before so, it was fine-I took it on the chin. But, then Rob got injured, I warmed up and came on to do what I had to do.”
“It’s absolutely brilliant for me to get the game time, I’m a bit fitter than I was last season but still a bit heavier than the other lads. I still got fit through pre-season and I’m really enjoying the game time. At the end of the day, I’m part of a squad so, I do what is required of me.”
“I like to add to the team on and off the pitch: On the pitch I can play a number of positions, so that adds to the team. Off the pitch, I like to raise the moral whether it be on the bus or in the dressing room-I like to have a laugh around the lads.”
“The club is a big part of me, I’ve been here for many years now and I still love my football. As long as my body will let me, I will keep playing and stay available for the team.”
“I used to set myself a ten goal target by Christmas when I was younger, but now, as a squad player, I haven’t really set any and my main aim is to stay fit and get as much game time as I can.”
Onto the FA Vase game on Saturday against Heaton Stan, Kyle talked about returning to the north-east:
“I’m excited for Saturday, I played in the north-east for many years when I was in my late teens and early twenties. I’ve played against Heaton Stan a lot before, and I enjoy going to away games and playing on different pitches. I like the nice little grounds to see what’s what.”
