Harry Clarke was proud to have captained our under-23s to a 1-0 victory over Southampton at Meadow Park on Saturday.
With regular captain Robbie Burton missing out, Clarke pulled on the armband as we kept our first clean sheet of the Premier League 2 season.
We spoke to Harry after the game - and this is what he said:
on keeping our first clean sheet of the season…
It’s really good, before the game, Steve emphasised how important it is to get the clean sheet. It’s been tough but I feel like we’ve been unlucky in a few games but the boys dug in today and that was our main target really. It you keep clean sheets you’re more likely to win the game and Tyreece helped us to do.
on captaining the side in Robbie Burton's absence…
It felt good, Robbie’s normally wearing [the armband] but he was suspended today. It’s always good and a really proud moment for me and I enjoy doing it. I’m always a leader no matter what, armband or not I try to help the team.
on winning successive matches…
It’s good to get back to winning ways because we’ve had a few draws this season but it’s always a good feeling to claim all three points.
