Following his arrival in the Summer of 2020, Tommy Wright has quickly found his feet at the Hawks notching eight league goals so far this campaign.
Wright bagged five goals in four appearances in December, earning himself the National League South player of the Month, “It was a nice surprise, it turned up at my Mum and Dad’s house, and I didn’t know anything about it! I wasn’t expecting it, considering we missed a few games in the month. It was definitely special to get that award.”
Since losing successive games to Marine and Hemel Hempstead six weeks ago, the Hawks have been in terrific form winning five of their last six games in all competitions. Despite the breaks in the play due to Coronavirus, Wright believes his team can maintain their form when they host Altrincham in the next round of the FA Trophy this weekend, “It was a good month. It was just a shame we had two covid breaks, the team and I were on a good run of form.
“We showed at the Hungerford game we can carry it on no matter how long the break is, and hopefully I’ll carry on scoring and the team will carry on winning when we get back to games on Saturday.”
But Wright hasn’t only got his eyes set on promotion, the striker is hungry to win the league’s golden boot, “I’m definitely looking at rewards in football again, which is the important thing. If I keep having months like December, scoring five or six goals in a month. You never know what could happen!”
Dorking’s Jason Prior and Hungerford’s Ryan Seager both sit at the top of the league’s goalscoring charts with 12 goals respectively.
