Sean Goss post Rochdale

18 August 2019

New signing Sean Goss talks to us about his debut and his first few days in and around Shrewsbury.

“It’s brilliant to be back out there. Straight in and had my first session with the lads yesterday, so to come straight in it’s always going to be tough. You’re learning every time and every minute that the game goes on. I really enjoyed it and I’ll be hoping to build on that performance because I haven’t had that much game time lately.”

Sean secured a full 90 minutes under his belt today, putting in a solid performance and starting to step-up and whip in some free-kicks and crosses. “I’ve always wanted to step up and take them. I’d like to think I’ve got a good delivery and get quite a lot of assists throughout the season.”

A goalless draw today for Town but many believe it was a solid performance including Sean. “I thought we were good. I think it took us a bit longer to get going and what we wanted. I think we showed some really good spells and I think we can be disappointed as well because we had some really good chances. But we’ll just take the point in the end.”

Goss has been without a club for almost a week and a half after having to do the training by himself. “I can’t stress enough how much I want to be back playing football and enjoying my football. I think this is a perfect opportunity to come here and get some games under my belt and do well for the club.”

23-year-old Sean has a background of experience with clubs such as QPR, Rangers and Manchester United. “I’m grateful for those opportunities and I think I’ve got more to show out there. Today was tough but we go again on Tuesday.”

Sean walked into the dressing room knowing a few friendly faces such as Donald Love and Ro-Shaun Williams. “I was lucky enough because I know Donald and Ro-Shaun. I grew up playing with them in the Under 23’s at Manchester United. They’ve been really good and helping me to settle in. I’ve said all the lads have been brilliant and probably one of the easiest changing rooms I’ve come into which is great.”

Having signed a two-year deal with Town, it has given Sean the boost, confidence and security that he needed at this point in his career. “I think signing for the club it gives you that bit of security. When you’re a loan player, it’s difficult because you’re not really part of the club I suppose. But when the opportunity came, it was the only thing I wanted to do.”

Sean is looking forward to Tuesday night’s game away at Accrington Stanley as he has more to offer on the pitch. He is eager for his first three points with the club. “I think I’m going to be learning new things every game. Every game is going to be so different so I’m looking forward to a challenge. We’ll take the point today and we’ll take as many positives as we can from today.”
