After joining the club towards the end of last season, Connor Scully has become a fan-favourite with his glorious hair, and quality on the pitch. We had a chat with him about how he’s doing during these strange times, his time with Walthamstow last season and the upcoming season.
How are things with you at the moment?
I’m well, thank you. I’ve been trying to keep as busy as possible and enjoying spending time with family over the uncertain period. This is probably the fittest I’ve been since a teenager, in all honesty, so lockdown hasn’t been all negative.
You turned in some solid performances in a Walthamstow shirt last term. How would you describe how last season went for you?
I’ve really enjoyed the transition of playing for Walthamstow. I loved contributing to the title push and genuinely think that if the season played out, we would have had enough to win it. A real positive for me was the mentality. It was so strong. We have a collective group expectation to win at all costs.
A vital goal against Saffron Walden to help us in an important win. Is this something we can get used to next season?
I think if you ask anyone who has managed or played with me in the past, you can always expect the odd worldie. All jokes aside, definitely. Personal targets are important and I want to surpass 15 league goals next season as a minimum.
What are you looking forward to most next season, whenever that is?
Next season is an important one for the club. It’ll be Max’s first full season in charge and a chance for players to make a name for themselves at this level. There is no reason why we shouldn’t look forward to winning the league, as long as we apply ourselves correctly.
