FC Halifax Town left-back Jack Senior has had a stellar start to the campaign, and spoke to Shaymen TV after Town’s 1-0 victory over Aldershot 

Senior played a big part in Halifax’s solo goal yesterday afternoon as Town defeated the Shots at the EBB Stadium. He began his interview by giving his thoughts on the match; “It was enjoyable – one of the best results, especially away,” Senior explained. “It’s really positive to keep a clean sheet away from home. I thought the first half was different to the second, because they came out the traps flying in the second half.

“They’ve just got a new manager, so they were going to have their tails up – they came after us and pressed us which made it a cagey affair for the first 20 minutes. Then we got a goal at a perfect time which helped settle us down.

“In the second half, there were times we had to dig deep and defend, but we looked comfortable as a unit, and we still created chances. So, a 1-0 win away from home – I’m happy!”

It’s a cliche, but Halifax’s match could have been deemed the definition of a game of two halves; “I’d agree in saying it was a game of two halves,” Jack answered. “Aldershot did threaten us in the first half, and we had to be ready for what they threw at us. As I said, in the first half we scored at the right time.

He added; “Then on the other hand, in the second half we had to deal with a spell of pressure from corners, free-kicks and balls into the box, but I thought to a man, we stood up to what they had to throw at us. I’d say we were comfortable, however, not every game will be like the ones we’ve already played – we will need to fight for some matches, especially away from home.”

Senior ended his interview by speaking about his contribution to Town’s winning goal; “I think I wanted the ball to come to me initially, and then when it finally found its way to me, I heard the shouts and played it across before it got into the box to Billy. Everything Billy touches turns to goals at the minute!”
