Gormley Pleased with Early Goal

Mon, 7th Nov 2016 3:11pm

Clyde forward David Gormley spoke to the press following Saturday's 2-1 win over Elgin City in Ladbrokes League 2.

The 28-year-old was put back into the starting line-up by Barry Ferguson and the move paid off after just 90 seconds, as he scored his first goal of the season to get the match off to a perfect start.

"It was a fast start for us getting two goals in the first ten minutes," he said. "It's a bit embarrasing for a striker to get his first goal of the season in November. It's been a bit of a frustrating time, I've not been playing as much as I'd like but Higgins and MacDonald have been flying so I can't really complain."

Gormley was also in the thick of the action just before half-time, as his challenge on Darryl McHardy led to a heated exchange between both dugouts:-

"I went for the ball. I know Darryl, who I tackled, and I've not gone in to hurt him. I went in for the ball and yeah, I might have been a wee bit heavy but I went in to protect myself and win the ball. The gaffer is always stressing to us that no-one should ever go in to hurt anyone.

"I spoke to Darryl during the game to tell him that it was a tackle that I thought I won fairly. The argument afterwards is just one of those things that happens in football, the gaffer and Bob are both really passionate people."

The Black and Whites came back strongly in the second half, scoring once, and Gormley admitted that the players still wanted more in terms of the performance:-

"Some of the boys were having a bit of a go at each other at the end of the match but that just shows the standards that we set for ourselves. We've beaten one of our rivals 2-1 and we're still disappointed with parts of the performance.

"We'll talk about it this week and move on to Arbroath on Saturday, but overall it's a great three points for us."
