farnboroughfc.co.uk caught up with summer signing Adam Brice to get his perspective on life in the Boro’ camp over the past few weeks.
Adam signed for Farnborough at the end of August and has so far gone on to make six appearances in total, including two from the bench.
The 19-year-old headed home his first Farnborough goal from Matt Ball’s free-kick in the 59th minute of Saturday’s narrow 2-1 home defeat to Bromley.
FFC: Hi Adam. Firstly, how have you settled in at Farnborough so far?
Brice: Well I think it was a good transition on a personal level, playing regularly and especially with winning the first 2 games, I felt it gave not just me but the team confidence on moving forward.
FFC: Were you pleased to get your first goal last Saturday against Bromley?
Brice: Yes, always nice to score a goal. Especially at home in front of our fans and against a very good side like Bromley. Hopefully I’ll be in those positions a few more times this season and get a few more goals for the club.
FFC: Farnborough have been drawn away to Brackley Town in the FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round on Saturday 27 September. What is your reaction to the tie?
Brice: It will be a tough fixture for sure. But I think if we play to our potential and how we have for the majority of the time that I have been at Farnborough. That we will be a very tough team to beat. We’ve had some fantastic results against some higher places teams recently, like Whitehawk and Maidenhead especially. Hopefully we can transfer that league form into a good FA cup run this season.
FFC: Personal aim come the end of the season?
Brice: I’d like to get as many appearances and keep as many clean sheets as possible and develop myself as a defender more. Hopefully I’ll be able to push on wherever my career takes me next in the coming seasons.
FFC: Targets as a team come the end of the season?
Brice: To win as many games and finish as high as possible in the league, we’ve shown that we can go to places like Maidenhead and keep clean sheets and win games 1-0. As well as getting ourselves back into games like Whitehawk and Basingstoke to get points at difficult grounds. We can match the top teams in the league. At times I feel we might just need a bit of extra luck like Saturday. Hopefully we can also get a good cup run going in the FA and Hampshire Cups.
FFC: Do you have a good relationship with your team mates and how is the centre-back partnership with the skipper Lewis Ferrell going?
Brice: Yeah they’ve been very easy to get on with. It is a real team spirit in the dressing room that recently has transferred into the pitch as actually got us results. I’m enjoying playing with Lewis. He is a great leader and very much respected in the dressing room. He’s easy to play with as he’s very talkative which helps the team hugely and he most importantly wants to win every game as much as I do. Which as a centre back pairing in any division in any country is vitally important I feel.
FFC: Next up is a trip to Wheatsheaf Park to play Staines Town, how do you preview that game?
Brice: Like every team in our league, Staines will be a tough fixture especially away from home. But we prepare for every game the same no matter who our opposition. And we set out every game to win, so hopefully on Saturday we can add to our recent form and push ourselves up the table.
FFC: Finally, do you have a message to Farnborough fans for the rest of the season?
Brice: My message is: Firstly thank you for voting me MoM Saturday v Bromley. Keep coming and keep supporting. The fans have been brilliant so far. And their support is vital to us succeeding in the future!
A massive thank you to Adam for his time and we wish him good luck with the rest of the season with Farnborough. You can also follow Adam on Twitter @adamLbrice, and view his player profile here: Adam Brice.
