Saturday’s match-winner Harry Grant spoke to www.farnboroughfc.co.uk following a hard-earned 3 points over Hayes & Yeading United.

The 21 year-old joined Farnborough towards the end of October this year and was delighted to grab the three points but admitted it wasn’t the prettiest of games.

Harry, you must be delighted to bag the winner to beat Hayes & Yeading United 1-0 on Saturday. What is your reaction to the win?

“Another great, hard working performance from the boys, it was tough at times but we managed to graft through it. It wasn’t the prettiest of games but all that matters are the 3 points.”

Can you talk us through your winning goal and your reaction to scoring?

“It’s always nice to score and the team to win, and for it to be the winner just added the icing on the cake after a good week for us. It was a great run and lay off from Darryl [Siaw] and I thought I’d have a pop and luckily enough it went in.

“I ran over to my dad for the celebration, my family are there home and away, and never miss a game. I haven’t been in the best of form recently and my Dad’s helped me through it so I felt it was right to celebrate with him.”

The former Bromley man netted his first goal for the Club

How important was it to collect our second home win in the League of the season?

“Yeah it was great to win again especially at home in front of our own fans who deserve something after a run of such bad results. With the work rate and quality this new look side has got I believe we can go on a good run and start moving up the table.”

With the season starting to improve, what are your targets for the remainder of the season?

“I believe as the season progresses we will pick up a lot more points. The lads are all great and we’re really starting to gel and get a good team spirit going, like I said with the quality and work ethic this team possesses we can go as far as we want this season.”

The team will be looking to make it three wins from three with an away trip to Sholing in the FA Trophy next Saturday. What are your thoughts going into this potential ‘banana skin’ game?

“Any cup competition game has the potential to be an upset, you’ve seen recently in the FA Cup anyone can beat anyone so we must approach it with the right attitude and get the win.”
