Following FC Halifax Town’s 1-0 home win over Aldershot Town, debutant Kian Spence spoke to Shaymen TV to give his thoughts on the game.
“I’m absolutely buzzing,” Spence said. “I thought it was well deserved to be honest. We came out of the blocks absolutely flying and we hit the woodwork twice and could have had a few early goals. We could have made it a lot easier for ourselves with an early goal, but like Saturday, we’ll take three points however they come.”
Spence came on to make his debut in the 64th minute when he replaced forward Billy Chadwick. The midfielder could have had a goal himself just moments after coming on.
“It’s been a long time coming,” Spence told Shaymen TV. “I’ve been out injured for two and a half months now and it happened just as I was about to come back to the fold. I was just delighted to get out there and hopefully make an impact for the team. I was a bit gutted as I didn’t score that chance. It would have been my first or second touch and I would have gone mental if I had scored. I would have celebrated my heart out.”
Town’s winner came in the 83rd minute as Jamie Allen fired past goalkeeper Ryan Hall, and Spence was delighted with his contribution in the build up to the goal.
“It’s always nice to make an impact,” Spence said. “I had a bit of an involvement with the goal and I just pleased to contribute. My heart sank when they got the ball in our net. We had built a bit of momentum, we were on top, and we had a few chances. Some goals get disallowed, that is football, but thankfully ours was allowed.”
The Shaymen travel to Eastleigh on Saturday with the debutant hoping to get some minutes under his belt as he looks for a starting spot in the team.
“Whenever I get a chance, I’ll do the best I can,” Spence told Shaymen TV. “Like I did tonight, and whenever I get that chance, I’ve shown what I can do. Hopefully, I can do a bit more for the fans and help get some more points on the board.”
