“Of course, I’m buzzing to have been voted player of the month again, there’s no better feeling than knowing your hard work is being appreciated, especially by the fans.”
George scored a wonder goal against Caernarfon at the Oval, as well as getting the goal that gave us the lead against Briton Ferry in the Welsh Cup at the start of the month.
This is the second time this season that he’s received the award, after winning it back in October as well and he’s managed to pip Mark Connolly and Alun Webb to the award
again this month.
He signed back in the Summer after playing with Wrexham and Bangor, and he’s said that he’s really pleased to have won the award.
“Of course, I’m buzzing to have been voted player of the month again, there’s no better feeling than knowing your hard work is being appreciated, especially by the fans.” Said George.
After battling with Caernarfon and getting two points out of the two games, George thinks we can definitely take confidence out of it.
“I think we can definitely take confidence from the last two games, at this moment in time we’ve got nothing to lose so we just have to go for it. We were the better team in my opinion over the two and a half games and we just need that slice of luck.”
“You just have to look at the chances we had; Sion Bradley’s chance was almost identical to Leo’s, Bradley’s goes in the bottom corner whereas Leo’s hits the inside of the post and rolls straight to the keepers’ hands.”
“Even the Boxing Day game we were massively on top and looking like we were going to go on and win the game. There was nothing to separate us over the two games and they’re sitting in the top six and we’re bottom of the league, so hopefully that bit of luck will go our way and kickstart us again.” Said George
As well as impressing in the league fixtures, George got an important goal for us against Briton Ferry in the Welsh Cup third round after the home side took the lead initially.
“I think the cup is massive for us, and the Llangefni game is no different. We will approach it like any other game and go out there to win of course.”
“I scored a decent goal in the previous round and will be looking to score again. We should be well rested hopefully too with it being just after the split and a busy festive period with lots of games, I think that’s took a lot out of the lads especially with the numbers we’ve got in the squad.”
“We’ve had players playing with knocks and illnesses which is a testament to what the gaffer has been looking to build and hopefully we can add some more quality players this January to help us get out of this situation.” Said George
He thinks that the goal against Caernarfon was probably the best of his career so far and is hungry to get more in the coming months.
“I did score a similar one against Bala last season for Bangor from a tighter angle but the Caernarfon goal has got to be the best of my career so far I think.”
“The gaffer has the confidence in me to get lots of shots off. We started the game quick and knew we needed an early goal to settle the crowd and I think it worked.”
“For me personally it’s been a disappointing first half od the season in terms of numbers of goals but I’ve been playing in positions that I’m not too familiar with in fairness.”
“Hopefully I can cement my place as the striker and get a good run of games in this second half of the season and the goals will come.” Said George
Manager Iwan Williams has praised George Harry’s work rate as well as his ability to be able to deal with pressure.
“We have been down to the bare bones where the team picks itself. A lot of the burden and pressure has fallen on George’s shoulders where we’ve asked him to play the lone role. In doing so he’s been colossal.” Said Iwan
“His work rate has been phenomenal and his tenaciousness has been a joy to watch never mind his strike at Caernarfon, and his celebration in coming to me meant a lot and we are starting to see the best out of him. Long may it continue.”
There’s a big two games left now until the split, and George and the rest of the lads will be hoping to bring the momentum into the Llanelli game and grab the all important three points.
