After making the switch from Hadley to Walthamstow, we caught up with Alfie Bartram as he put pen to paper. We spoke about what attracted him to Walthamstow, his aspirations as a player and how much of an impact the Rabble will have on him.
Coming from Hadley, How excited are you about your move to Walthamstow?
I am very excited. This is a top club and one that is fighting for the title. I’m excited to join that fight to try and win the league.
What attracted you to the project at Walthamstow?
I simply had a chat with Max. He delivered his plans for the project at Walthamstow. Not just this season but for the next few seasons.
What are your aspirations as a player?
I am a big winner. I’m a passionate guy and want to win every game I play. I would describe myself as an attacking full-back who likes to be on the front foot right from the off. I want the opposition wingers to know I’m there and that they are in a battle.
What are your targets and goals for the remainder of the season?
I want to win the remaining games and lift that title. I want to follow the ambitions of Max and the chairman to lift the Essex Senior League and get promoted.
How do you think Max and the players at Walthamstow will help you?
The club train twice a week which is already a step in the right direction. There are some top lads at the club and we have a good squad so I’m excited to get going.
Who are you most looking forward to playing with?
I look at the centre-forwards and the fact we have the league’s top scorer is just great. I know Connor Scully so I’m looking forward to linking up with him and I’ve played with Charlie Mann in the past too.
The Rabble follow the club home and away. How do you think they will help you as a player?
It will help massively. Having fans travel home and away is better for the players. It gives the team something to play for other than three points so their support is very welcoming.
Pending the completion of the usual paperwork, Alfie should be in the squad for Saturday’s trip to Stansted.
