WEYMOUTH top goalscorer Abdulai Baggie admits he would “never settle” for his achievements despite hitting his targets this season.

Baggie, 27, has been involved in more goals than any other Terra this term, scoring 12 times and providing eight assists.

The Sierra Leone international also scored in the 4-2 Dorset Senior Cup final win over Dorchester, shortly before the National League was suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Speaking to Echosport, Baggie insisted he is hungry for more goals this season – should play resume.

He said: “On a personal note, it’s been a good season.

“We’re still unsure what’s going to happen with the season, but I still had my aims and targets at the start of the season in my head, and I’ve done that.

“I still want to hit more goals, more assists which is always good. I’d never settle with what I’ve done so far.

“The team as a whole, as well, it’s been brilliant. The whole squad has been utilised very well.

“Different personnel has come in, done their job. People have been injured during the season and it’s a credit to everyone, the staff as well.

“It’s a club that’s moving forward and long may it continue.”

Baggie also runs his own soccer schools company but enjoys the challenge of juggling Weymouth and business commitments.

“Everyone’s in the same boat, really,” he said. “We all have jobs, like myself I’ve got coaching and a little one as well.

“It’s not just myself – we just try and do the best we can on the pitch with work.

“Football’s always been a relief for me on a Saturday – we train Tuesday and Thursday – so I try and switch off as best as I can, focus and do the best I can.

“As long as you give it your all, you can never control what you can’t control. As long as you prepare right, work hard and the rest will take care of itself.”
