McPhee "buzzing" with away win and goal
SALISBURY City midfielder Chris McPhee says everyone in the Whites camp was left with gleaming smiles on their faces after Saturday’s away triumph.
The versatile player was particularly left “buzzing” in Lincolnshire after getting off the mark in the Skrill Premier with a first half header, writes Joel Holt.
“It was one of those afternoons in which the team just clicked together,” the 30-year-old told the Journal.
“Over the past month we’ve worked hard as a group defending balls coming into the box.
“This is a very physical league and it’s all about coming together as a group. We’re a young group and it was like going into the unknown when we first started.
“All we can do is continue to learn as each game approaches.
“During the warm down, after the game, the boys were buzzing.
“The away performances of late have shown exactly what this group is capable of.
“Every one of our players had a smile on their face.
“I’m also buzzing to get off the mark and hopefully there are plenty more goals to come from me.”
McPhee, in his second season at Salisbury, knows what it takes to succeed in non-league football’s highest division and has every confidence in young boss Mikey Harris.
“I think people may have been sceptical of what he could offer us as a group when he took over,” McPhee added.
“But Mikey is one of those people who will never leave a stone unturned and works every last second of every day to make sure we are more than prepared for our next game.
“His attention to detail is frightening.
“The belief in the squad is filtering through and we are starting to reap the benefits.”
