MIDFIELDER Aaron Ferris praised Swindon Supermarine’s potent counter-attacking threat after they secured a 3-1 away victory at Jake Jackson had given the Bluebells the lead with 27 minutes on the clock but a brace from striker Ash Edenborough sandwiching a goal for Ferris, ensured Marine left with the points.

Youngster Ferris was pleased to get on the scoresheet for the South Marston side and believes the speed with which his team were able to break held the key to their victory. “It’s good to win away from home against a team in the top five and I think we deserved to win given the amount of chances we had,” he said.

“It’s good to score as well, especially as an attacking player, because a goal or an assist are the two best things.

“We’ve not played because we’ve had a load of games called off but training’s been good in recent weeks to be honest. We were a bit rusty but it was good to get back on the pitch and to get a goal was brilliant.

“We were good on the break and our counter-attack was really good and that played a big part in our goals.”

Ferris has ended up playing for Marine following his release from Swindon Town’s youth system in the summer, but the midfielder still has his eyes set on making it in the professional game.

“I’ve enjoyed it a lot and I feel as if I’m starting to settle into the squad more and more with every game I play,” he said.

“There’s a few of us from Swindon Town and we all want to be playing football so it’s a good place to be.

“I just want to play as much football as I can and be able to get back to the highest level I can, that’s the aim.

“You can do that in a mixture of ways but the best bit is to play well and have other teams come to you rather to go off chasing trials but it’s a really hard thing to do.”

Marine return to action on Tuesday night when they travel to Wimborne Town.
