Midfielder Jack Earing has thoroughly enjoyed his first season in the Football League and is looking to keep growing in confidence when the team take on Harrogate Town on Saturday afternoon.
The ever-present box-to-box midfielder has had to show his adaptability since joining the Club in the summer from Halifax Town but insists he is loving life at the Banks’s and he has settled in extremely well.
“I have loved my first season in the football league, it feels more like 10 years that I have been playing football,” said Earing.
“I have been happy at the club, I have settled in really well.
“I have played more or less every game here which is what I wanted to do since I came here and I feel like I am progressing well in a position which I hadn’t really played in before I came here.
“I feel like I have adapted well and I am playing regularly so I couldn’t be happier with the way my first season in the football league is going.
“Playing in the deeper role, I have learnt more of the defensive side and the ugly side of the game.
“I have had to do more defending, more heading and making sure I am tracking runners but that is all for my progression.
“I can do it, the gaffer knows that I can play there. I am capable of playing off both feet, I like to receive the ball and I think that is why I have been put there at the start of the season and now because of my receiving skills.
“I try to get the team playing from the build up play but I feel like I have progressed well this season in that deeper position.
“We have always been a confident group of players and we will be looking to take that confidence into Saturday’s game against Harrogate.
“In the recent games since the Head Coach has come in, there has been a difference atmosphere here in the camp and we will again be looking to use that on Saturday.
“The supporters have been brilliant all season.
“I was reading something on Twitter the other day that we have got one of, if not the best away support in League Two and you can see that every week.
“The fans are always there cheering us on no matter what the result us and they are going to be massive for us again on Saturday away at Harrogate.”
