Harry Williams is confident a first senior goal for Cheltenham Town will lead to several more.
The attacking midfielder turned 19 last Saturday and he was close to celebrating it in style by opening his scoring account in the 1-1 home draw with Morecambe 24 hours earlier.
Prolific for the youth and reserve teams last season, Williams has impressed new boss Paul Buckle enough to earn a chance in the starting line-up and he now wants to deliver in front of goal to help the Robins embark on a climb up the table.
“The key thing is to score one, no matter how it goes in,” Williams said.
“Then it will all start to come together for me I am sure. If I can get one, it’ll be a monkey off my back and I am sure more will come, so hopefully I can get one soon.”
Former Balcarras School pupil Williams will be hoping to have done enough to retain his place against Luton Town on Saturday and if he does it will be his sixth start for the club.
“I want to play in every game and the gaffer has asked for work ethic from everyone,” he said.
“I have been running my socks off every day in training and hopefully my performances have been up to scratch.
“If we start taking our chances, we know results will turn for us and I should have scored against Morecambe. I did the hard part, but lacked the finish at the end, which was very frustrating.”
Williams spent time out on loan at Evesham United earlier in the season, earning plenty of praise from their manager Paul Collicutt, who was part of Cheltenham’s Southern League title winning team 30 years ago.
“It was good experience for me there and I think I needed it,” Williams said. “I scored a few goals in adult football and now the new gaffer has given me a chance back at Cheltenham.
“He has put his confidence in me with a new contract to the end of next season and now I want to keep doing well and earn another one, starting against Luton.”
