SALISBURY’S summer signing Stuart Green is in great form for the Whites at the moment, scoring six goals in his last four appearances and has said: “I am thoroughly enjoying my football at Salisbury”.

The attacking midfielder has scored nine goals so far this season since his move from fellow Southern League Division One West Winchester City.

The 27-year-old, who scored 13 goals last year for the Hampshire side, has set a target this season of 15 and 10 assists.

Green took a while to get going at Salisbury but has now proved himself and cemented a place in the team. He admitted this himself, telling JournalSport: “It did take me a while to secure a place in the side but that was slightly self inflicted.

“The side is full of excellent players too, so I knew I wasn’t just going to come to Salisbury and walk straight into the team.

“Therefore I had to show a good attitude, work hard and wait for my chance to show the gaffer and my teammates what I am capable of.

“I will always show a professional attitude and obviously I want to play every game, but as long as the gaffer is picking a winning side (whether I am in it or not) then I am happy.”

Despite being joint top goalscorer for the club, along with Lewis Benson and Kane O’Keefe who are all on nine, Green said he prefers to assist rather than score. He said: “If I am honest as much as I love scoring goals I prefer to assist them.

“Weirdly it gives me a greater satisfaction.”

He also has said that he was disappointed not to score more against Barnstaple at the weekend, adding: “I am a capable goalscorer - I’m not in the same bracket as say Justin Bennett or Tommy Wright, but I do score goals.”

The midfielder believes he has now taken his opportunity and hopes to stay in the team, adding: “I am thoroughly enjoying my football at Salisbury.”

He said: “In the summer I knew I was joining an ambitious club with an excellent fan base and my thoughts remain the same a few months into the season.

“The fans who travel home and away are excellent and that is something that I value very much in football and a key reason as to why I joined the club.

He also said: “I am very confident that the club will be promoted this season, if we weren’t to be then it would be a massive disappointment for all involved.”
