The Zoca Bastion player of the year on his debut season with the Bastion and his highs lows and hopes for the future with Zoca.
The Bastion Insider :- How do you feel the season has gone on a personal level and as a team?
Jamie Currer :- On a personal level i think it's been great. Even though i had some set backs through injury, i managed to come back stronger. I set myself some small targets, such as to improve my first touch and shoot more with my left foot. I managed to do both so ive got to carry on pushing myself for next season! As a team, clearly at the start of the season we had no idea how to play with each other but as the year wore on, we adapted and learned each individuals strengths and played to get the best from each other. Im sure next season we'll hit the ground running.
"Our draw VS Europa, meant we drew against a team that finished in one of the top spots and was such a rush playing so well as a team."
The Bastion Insider :- Who were your football Inspirations growing up?
Jamie Currer :- I never had one inspiration, i admired many footballers for their individual traits. Owen for his finishing, Scholes for his range of passing, Maldini for his tenacity and ability to read the game defensively and Ronaldinho purely because he was so pleasurable to watch. There were many more too!
The Bastion Insider :- What was your best moment this Season?
Jamie Currer :- There were so many great moments this season but i think the best moment has to be when we were 1-0 down to Europa FC. I was told by a team mate that their keeper was saving everything that was going low, so i had to aim higher. I received the ball outside the box, cut in and got past my marker and shot. It went straight in the top corner. It meant we drew against a team that finished in one of the top spots and was such a rush playing so well as a team.
"As a team. I want us to become more of a family as the more we bond, the more we'll fight for for each other. The results will come when that happens".
The Bastion Insider :- With the season coming to an abrupt end due to Covid-19, how have you been keeping yourself busy?
Jamie Currer :- Ive been keeping myself busy mainly by being at work. Unfortunately i'm required to do lots of overtime, but when i'm not working i enjoy spending time with my family and taking my dog on long walks in the sun. The weather has been great and now that we're allowed out, in trying to improve my pasty skin colour.
The Bastion Insider :- What are your hopes for the team next season?
Jamie Currer :- Next season, personally i just want to improve as a player. I hope to be a player who the others on the team will look to in order to push forward and get the results we want, but as a team. I want us to become more of a family as the more we bond, the more we'll fight for for each other. The results will come when that happens.
The Bastion Insider :- You've had a lot of personal success this year, Fans Player of the Season, Zoca Player of the Season, Goal of the Year & Top Scorer, anything you'd like to say to your fans and team mates ?
Jamie Currer :- Ive had a lot of success this season, a lot more than i thought i would, especially with the talent we have in this team!I'd just like to thank my team mates for every second of this campaign so far. It's all been so enjoyable and i can't wait to get started again. The fans have been incredible the entire season as well. Thank you so much for all the support you give us every single game! You really are the 12th man, well the 6th........
