Gaffer & The New Capi look to the Season ahead

Updated: Oct 13, 2023

The Bastion Insider:- What are your hopes and expectations for the season ahead on a personal and team level?

Chris Currer:- This season our expectations are to improve upon last season in all aspects as we done year on year since my arrival. To gel the new signings will take time, but we have made good strides in the weeks we have had together and I’m sure we will have a season we can all be proud of. Top 4 is of course the bench mark to strive for and we will push till the end for this to happen.

Jamie Currer:- I'd love the team to hit a top 4 position but more importantly play good football. Personally, I want atleast 15 goals this season, but if I'm able to provide 15 I'd be just as happy!

"A good Captain should accept responsibility and have undeniable passion for the game" - Jamie Currer

The Bastion Insider:- What do you feel your new assistant Paul Podesta can add to your coaching practices?

Chris Currer:- Podesta is a born winner first and foremost. His tenacious attitude to strive for perfection as a player both physically and mentally has so far transferred itself into his coaching. His support of the ideologies of this club and his knowledge of the game as a whole is a big plus for us. With Podesta working closely with me this season and the foreseeable future, the club can only go from strength to strength.

The Bastion Insider:- What do you think makes a good captain and what do you feel you can bring as Zoca captaincy?

Jamie Currer:- I think a good captain should be able to accept responsibility, lead by example, teach leadership, care about the players and management and have an undeniable passion for the game. I can bring all of this and put the success of the team above my own needs.

"Top 4 is always the benchmark to strive for" - Chris Currer

The Bastion Insider:- What was your fave moment from the Team last Season?

Chris Currer:- I would say the 4:4 draw with a strong Lynx side competing for the league, having an injury hit squad is right up there. We showed resilience and a fighting spirit to the end personified by a great finish for our 4th goal with moments left on the clock by Grech.

Jamie Currer:- My favourite moment personally was scoring and assisting against Europa FC in the last game of the season which took my tally to 10 goals and 10 assists. As a team, I thoroughly enjoyed the 17-2 win against Lek as that's the game we were most clinical and played the best football.

The Bastion Insider:- What qualities does Jamie bring as captain?

Chris Currer:- Jamie brings many qualities to the team as captain of the club. First and foremost he’s been with the club for a number of years and is now one of the senior members within the team who knows the ins and outs and expectations of Zoca. He brings leadership whether it be leading by example on the pitch and in trainings or a voice in the dressing room and pitch when needed. An extension of management and everything we look to achieve is quite simply the best way to put it. It was an easy decision with the club moving forward in to the next phase of its development.

The Bastion Insider:- What qualities does Chris bring as manager?

Jamie Currer:- Chris has many qualities that a manager should have. His Tactical Knowledge in my opinion is second to none, he oozes with Confidence, has a firm grip on Man Management and has a clear passion above all else for football/futsal!

The Bastion Insider:- And lastly who is longest in the shower.................

Chris Currer:- 100% Jamie 😂 he would happily have 3 or 4 showers a day and countless times has left me without hot water 🤣

Jamie Currer:- I'm definitely the longest in the shower because I do exercise and he doesn't 👀😂
