FC Halifax Town defeated Weymouth 2-0 at the Shay Stadium, and midfielder Kian Spence spoke to Shaymen TV after the game

Spence began the interview by giving his thoughts on the game; “I am delighted to get the three points,” he said. “We are on an unbelievable run now and everyone knows that – It’s something like four out of our last five games we have won. I thought we started a little sloppy, but we got that goal early on – then we saw the game out and were on top in the second half.”

The second goal of the game came courtesy of Spence, and it marked his first-ever goal in senior football; “For everyone who saw my reaction, I didn’t know what to do,” Kian firstly commented regarding his goal. “I think I jumped and gave Martin Woods a hug because he was the first person I saw. I was delighted to get the goal, and I was just taken in by the moment – I got on my hands and knees and it the lads were brilliant with by congratulating me.”

In attendance at the game was Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford, so the question beckoned, how did Kian feel about scoring in front of an England international? “You can’t be putting me on the spot like that,” the midfielder amusingly said. “It’s obviously nice knowing that someone of that level and stature is here watching me play and see me scoring a goal. But I think he was here to watch Tyrell Warren more than anything else.”

Kian ended the interview by looking ahead to next week as the Shaymen travel to Ilkley Town in the West Riding County Cup and Pontefract Collieries in the Emirates FA Cup; “Ilkley is near me, and I played there a bit when I was little kid,” Spence began by saying. “They were a decent Sunday league team from when I played for Pannal Sports. We will take the game seriously and not take our feet off the gas, because anybody can beat anybody.”

He added on Pontefract; “I know more about Pontefract because I have a few friends who play for them, and that will make it more personal for me. But anything can happen in the FA Cup, we have seen all the upsets before – and we will make sure we are not on the end of one.”
