INTERVIEW | Charlie’s Challenge

Charlie Albinson was ‘delighted’ to make his Southport debut and keep a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory over Blyth Spartans last weekend.

The 22-year-old was called into Liam Watson’s starting XI for the first time since joining the club this summer.

The keeper admits there were some nerves heading into the game, but was pleased not to concede.

“It was a good game and a good performance,” he said. “I was delighted to make my debut and to keep a clean sheet and get the three points.”

“It’s always important to get a clean sheet, but there is still loads to do going forward. There’s always some nerves beforehand but once you get started they disappear.”

It took the Port over an hour to break down the Blyth defence, before Zehn Mohammed headed in the opener.

“It was a frustrating first half, we had a couple of chances but couldn’t break them down. We knew once we got our first goal then we would settle into the game more.”

Albinson feels that it is important for Southport to continue their current run of form against Scarborough in the FA Cup this weekend.

The keeper is positive about his time with the club so far and the support the team has received from the fans so far this campaign.

“We’re on a nice run, unbeaten in four games, so it’s good to back on winning ways and climbing up the table. We need to keep that momentum going and look for wins going into every game.”

“I’ve enjoyed life here so far, it’s been really interesting, the boys are great and there’s a good atmosphere.”

“The fans have been brilliant and come out in their numbers both home and away.”
