    Jim Lister after East Fife Game

    How does it feel to score first competitive goal for Alloa Athletic

    If feels brilliant, yes a good feeling and one I would want more often, it takes a bit of adjusting to the pace of the Second Division after playing with Bathgate Juniors last season but I think I’m getting there, the manager has been bringing me on so far in the second half of the games and I hope I have proved my value to the team. I will continue doing what I’m doing and hopefully the manager might see the opportunity to give me a start in a game soon. I’m happy to be here, it’s a great club and to score on my home debut is perfect for me.
    I had a shoot at the senior game earlier in my career with Berwick Rangers but it just didn’t work out at that time, there was a lot of things that came into play at that time with more focus at the time not on the field of play at the club, injuries and I never got started and I thought that maybe my chance had gone in the senior game. I had a good season last season with Bathgate Juniors scoring 38 goals when everything I touched turned into a goal, everything I hit even my scuffs seemed to go in.
    However when Kevin McDonald sent over that inch perfect cross today, I knew my name was on it and I attacked the ball with the belief I would score, great connection and delighted with the goal, the reaction of the fans showed they enjoyed the goal as much as I did. We know this season we have every reason to look forward to our games, playing with great belief and the lift the club got for doing so well last season, however other clubs will want to shoot Alloa down. That’s a couple of games now already this season we have had to come back into games and the boys have shown great belief and mentality to win games, there is a great spirit in the dressing room which we look to carry throughout the season.
