Brandon Goodship has high ambitions


WEYMOUTH striker Brandon Goodship remains committed to the club but admitted he aims to play at the “highest level” possible.

Before a 6-0 friendly defeat to Bournemouth Under-23s, the Terras’ striker was handed the golden boot by director Pete Saxby following his 38 goals in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division.

Goodship’s goals helped Weymouth finish fifth in the league last campaign until a 3-0 play-off semi-final defeat to King’s Lynn put paid to their chances of promotion.

Speaking to Echosport about the prospect of rival clubs sniffing around the striker after his remarkable form, Goodship insisted he took rumours with a “pinch of salt”.

He said: “I’ve heard of a few bits and pieces that have gone on. In football you never really know what’s true until it’s put in front of you on paper.

“You take it with a pinch of salt. I’ve not spoken to anyone, it’s just what you hear on the rumour mill. I just get on with things.

“I want to play at the highest level I can possibly play at. If nothing comes up I’ll give my all for Weymouth like I did last year.”

Commenting on his receipt of the golden boot, Goodship felt the award was as much for his team-mates as himself.

He said: “I couldn’t attend the evening the Southern League put on (to collect it), but it’s a really good award.

“Like I’ve said before, I’m delighted to have it and it’s one I wouldn’t have without my team-mates. It’s any award for everyone rather than just for me.
