SOUTHERN LEAGUE: Parsons happy with blend at Supermarine

This Is Wiltshire: Josh Parsons Josh Parsons

JOSH Parsons is confident that Supermarine are beginning to get the blend right as they continue to chase the play-off spots in Division One South & West.

Parsons was one of the many players brought in from Highworth over the summer, following ex-Elms boss Dave Webb’s move to South Marston.

The striker has hit eight goals so far in 2012/13 - including four in an FA Cup clash at Hallen - and he believes that both he and his fellow ex-Worthians such as Craig Curtis, Dan Wallington and Dan Hilder, together with the rest of the squad, are starting to form a strong unit.

“Quite a few of us knew some of the lads like Deano (Rob Dean) and Coley (Tom Cole) before we came and I think we’ve integrated well with the lads,” said Parsons.

“We’re also all getting used to how each other play a bit more and that’s why we’re starting to pick up a few more results.

“The performances at the start of the season weren’t good enough, but they are much better now.

“The two new signings we’ve got in, Chris Smith and Chris Taylor, have been massive for us and they give us a lot more going forward.”

Supermarine are at home to high-flying Tiverton in the league tomorrow, a side who possess the kind of quality Webb’s men will need to match if they are to make the play-offs.

Getting to that standard has been something of a baptism of fire for the likes of Parsons this year, having been much more used to the standard of football in the Hellenic Premier.

“I didn’t know what the level was like, the step up from the Hellenic was quite a big one and I wasn’t expecting it,” said Parsons.

“It’s definitely a lot more physical even though it’s only one step up, all the defenders and all the players in general are a bit quicker and more intelligent. You have to adapt quite quickly when you’re thrown into it.

“I’m aiming for 20 goals this season and if I get that I’ll be happy.

“When I used to play for Swindon Town I used to play wide a lot, but whenever I’m a striker like at Highworth and Supermarine, I just score as many goals as I can.

“If I score two or three a game then the team is going to be winning.”
