Terry Sedge Reacts: Herne Bay Performance / Rory Smith / Looking Ahead to Sevenoaks


Terry Sedge has reacted to Tuesday night’s 1-0 victory against Herne Bay in the Velocity League. 

“I was very pleased with the first half in particular - we played some really good football and created a few good opportunities,” he said.

“But, we weren't clinical and that was our issue. We felt that maybe we didn’t quite have the urgency in our play to get on the end of some of those chances.”

“The second half wasn’t as good, but we got the result and we progressed into the next round of the competition which is the most important thing.”

Rory Smith was the difference for Ramsgate on the night, scoring the only goal of the game on his final appearance for The Rams as he heads abroad. 

“It was really great that Rory got the decisive goal; he deserved it. He’s a top lad with a good attitude and that was his final performance for us this season as things stand.” 

“Hopefully when he’s enjoyed his time in Australia he can perhaps continue playing for us in the future.”

Ramsgate take on an in-form Sevenoaks side on the weekend and Terry is relishing what will be a ‘difficult’ game. 

“I am looking forward to seeing some old faces. The likes of Micky Collins and Julien Leigh were in charge of the reserve team at Tonbridge when I was involved there, and John Wilfort played for Tonbridge so it’ll be nice to see them three again.”

“Sevenoaks are a well-drilled side at the moment and they have a decent run going, so we know it will obviously be a difficult game away from home.”

“We know what we need to do and we are perfectly capable of beating anybody on our day. As long as we are clinical, I think we stand a great chance because defensively we are a good unit.”

“I wish all the travelling supporters well and hopefully it’ll be a positive we’re looking at come 5:00pm.”
