BRANDON Goodship says the players’ bond got them over the line after Weymouth sealed promotion to the National League South on Saturday with a 3-0 win at home to Farnborough.
Goodship, speaking outside the changing room after celebrating their title triumph, was effusive in praise for his teammates.
He said: “The feeling in the changing room is just unbelievable, it is a very special group of lads.
“We have all got a really, really close bond and I think that bond got us over the line because we have had a few dodgy results in the past few weeks.”
Goodship elaborated on the difficult results in the build-up to the final game of the season, pointing out that at any other time the result against Poole would have been a good point to obtain.
He said: “I mean away at Poole, any other time time in the season it is a derby, Bank Holiday Monday, you would look at it, think 1-1 yeah it is a good result, it is a good point.
“But obviously within the circumstances, it ended up being a bit of a gutting result.
“We came out (against Farnborough) weathered the first half really well.
“We came out in the second half flying and managed to score three good goals and like I said we have done it.”
“To be honest me and Josh (Wakefield, who got the assist for Goodship’s effort) sort of caught eyes and I knew he would deliver a good ball over the top.
“I just needed to make sure I had a good first touch and managed to slot it into the corner.”
He added: “The celebrations (for the goal) after were really good, we still managed to keep pressing and harrying them and they could not really get out of their half.
“Obviously the third sort of finished them off and we managed to stay on and clinch it.”
The result now means Terras face a trip to Kettering Town in a special match between the winners of the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Central Division and the Evo-Stik Southern Premier South.
Kettering were league rivals with Weymouth last year and finished fourth, level on points with Weymouth in fifth.
Weymouth in turn finished a huge 19 points ahead of sixth-placed Tiverton Town.
