  • Greig Spence after full debut 

    14 February 2009 19:46:46

    My dream like lots of other young boys is to play professional football and I have to say that playing at Hampden Park in my first full senior debut for Alloa Athletic is something I could not have dreamed for at the start of this season. Today’s game I really enjoyed and I felt as the game went on I got more into the game and more involved and obviously happy to score my first goal in such an important game for the club, at an important time in the match. As the game wore on I got more tired but the goal near the end of the match from Stuart Noble gave everyone a great lift and no more than we deserved because we had worked hard for this result. In other matches this season I feel we have not always had the breaks but we were desperate to collect three points today and get that away win. Asked if today’s goal had been the best of his career he said if not it was one of the most important and meant a lot to him and the people who have shown faith in him. Playing alongside Stuart Noble today had been made easy in the fact that Stuart has helped Greig at training, taking him aside and giving Greig some pointers on how to improve his game and always encouraging him and it was good to play up front with him because he has played at a higher level and passes on his experience which Greig is grateful to Stuart for. Asked about his recollection of today’s goal, Greig said “David Crawford palmed away a shot which came towards me and I only had one thought and leathered it”, lets hope there are still more of Greig’s goals to help “The Wasps” move away from the relegation end of the table this season.
