Farzad Haidary - I Need to Keep my Head Down and Work Hard for the Manager
You made your Ramsgate debut on Saturday, were you feeling the pressure?
Farzad Haidary: I felt a little pressure at the start of the game as it was my first match for the first team as a 17-year old lad but as the game went on, I started to grow into it. Hopefully more opportunities come my way and if they do, I'll look to do my best as always.
Ramsgate lacked that cutting edge against VCD and ended up losing 1-0 in unlucky circumstances. Are the signs encouraging at least heading into the second half of the Isthmian League campaign?
FH: It was a great team performance from the lads on Saturday. It’s not easy to come back from a 7-0 defeat against Sittingbourne the other week but the lads showed great character and we fought till the end. There is definitely a sign of improvement and the team will improve week by week by working hard in training and taking on board all the information from the gaffer and from his staff members. I’m optimistic we will see a change in the league table in the next few weeks.
Do you have any personal goals you’d like you achieve this season with Ramsgate?
FH: My personal goals are to succeed in a Ramsgate shirt and become one of the key players for the team. But, first I need to keep my head down, work hard in every training session and do what the manager asks of me.
What challenges do you think you’ll be faced with in the coming weeks as part of the Ramsgate set up going forward?
FH: There are a tough few games ahead of us but it’s not impossible to pick up all the points from them games. We need to stick together as a team and trust the manager with his philosophy.
