WEYMOUTH captain Jake McCarthy is looking forward to his first taste of the play-offs as Weymouth prepare for their play-off semi-final away at King’s Lynn Town tomorrow in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division (7.45pm).
McCarthy joined the club in June from AFC Bournemouth and spoke of the good morale within the squad.
McCarthy said: “The morale on the whole is very good at the club everyone’s spirits are very high and everyone is looking forward to the play-offs.
“For the majority of us it is the first time being involved in the play-offs so everyone cannot wait for it to get going.”
“All of the boys are really confident and we have proven that we can beat anyone that is in the play-offs, it is just down to whoever is the better team on the day.”
McCarthy, when asked about the importance of momentum with the play-offs, said: “You would not want to be going into the play-offs after a couple of defeats so momentum in football is massive, if you get a couple of wins under your belt and then you can keep them rolling.”
McCarthy added: “Speaking on behalf of me and some of the other boys coming from where we were and the under-21s this has been my most enjoyable season of playing football and to top it off getting into the play-offs is very good. It is the first time for me and a couple of others.”
McCarthy added: “It is always good to have a lot of us coming from that level, we have played together so there are partnerships in there already.
“We play a very similar way in the sense that we like to pass the ball when we can and it is only going to be a positive that we have played together previously before coming to Weymouth and it shows off the pitch and on the pitch. We are all really good friends and it is such a tight knit group. It really helps and it shows with our performances.”
