YOUTH: Team performance is the main thing

28 March 2017

Jack Egan on scoring in the 5-1 win over Bury

United winger Jack Egan was delighted to see his side get back to winning ways after a 5-1 win over Bury.

Egan netted the opener in the victory over the Shakers and admitted his side were desperate for a win after a tough run of results.

And now, with a first league win since September under their belt, Egan and the rest of the second year cohort are looking to push on in the hope of earning a professional contract.

After an impressive start to the season, the Cumbrians had suffered a dip in form of late, and Egan admitted his side had needed the three points.

“Our performances haven’t been the best recently and we’ve been dying for the win,” he said.

“It was a good, solid performance from all the lads today, especially the ones at the back who dug in.

“We’ve been getting goals but not results and it’s amazing for all the lads to get this. Now we just need to push on until the end of the season.”

Despite the results Egan has impressed and has consistently been a threat going forward, with the lively winger finding himself on the scoresheet again against the Shakers.

And the youngster admitted it was pleasing to be making a contribution to his team’s goal tally, and that there was only ever one thought in his mind when the ball teed up for the first goal.

“The goals have been coming and I’m getting more assists," said the winger.

“The team performance is the main thing though and we did well today. I only had one thing in mind with my goal. I got my head up, took it from under my feet and luckily it went in!"

With a win now secured the hard work doesn’t stop for the Blues, with a number of Darren Edmondson’s side looking to earn a professional contract as they come towards the end of their scholarship.

And for Egan, the hard work has to continue as he looks to impress Keith Curle.

“It’s been tough,” he admitted, “We’ve been digging in during training and every day is hard. It’s only going to get harder now so we need to keep pushing on.

“We’ve just got to do what we do best and hopefully get noticed by the gaffer.”
