WUFC are delighted to confirm the retention of lighting quick attacking midfielder Sam Marshall!
We spoke to Sam at he latest preseason session.
Hi Sam, welcome back for another year!
Why Winsford for you?
I don't think last season represented the quality in the the team & the work we put in. It was a great relief for all players & fans to avoid the drop. We have a great base already & with the addition of a couple more players that Ducko & the staff have recruited, I think we’ve got a big season ahead, in which I can’t wait to be apart off.
I enjoy my football at Winsford, the fans are passionate & the club have the same ambitions as myself.
How is Preseason?
Hahahah I can’t exactly say I love the preseason programme but it has to be done. We’re all being put through our paces, both with & without the ball. I’ve been playing out of season to make sure I’m slightly prepped for what’s in store over these next few weeks. We have some tough friendlies & it’ll be interesting to see how well we perform... However, can we please have the start of the season now.
Hopes and aims for the coming season?
I have a couple of aims this year. Personally, I want to do whatever I can to help the team win game in game out. I must admit my goalscoring hasn’t been the best so I’d like to improve on that, as well as continuing to Assist as I do.
As for the club, I believe it’s a massive season & opportunity for the club to gain promotion. Top 5 I say should be a cert, top 3? It’s gonna be interesting. Finally, cup runs are also a major buzz for me. The Vase & FA cup are massive for the club & players. I’ve got a good feeling the club will produce what’s expected this year.
For the first three months of last year Sam was unplayable for us. He is direct and lighting fast with an unwavering work ethic. He immediately puts defenders on the back foot as his first thought is to commit them. He’s looked after himself in the summer and is looking back to his best. Added to the attacking talent we already have committed makes for an exciting thought ahead of the pre season games
