Ed: Weymouth possess the quality to make the play-offs
ED Palmer is loving life at the Bob Lucas Stadium and is adamant the Terras possess more than enough quality to secure a play-off spot.
The powerful centre-back has been a key component in Weymouth’s upturn in fortunes in recent months and he is determined to see the momentum continue.
“Everyone knows we cannot afford to get carried away but we have got more than enough quality to carry on and keep it going,” said Palmer.
“The last three results have all been massive for us and they have put us in a very good position but there is still a lot of work to be done.
“It is still very tight up there so it is vital we keep picking up points in the games coming up.”
The fourth-placed Terras have won seven out of their last eight in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division and it was Palmer who was the hero in their latest triumph over Banbury United.
Last Saturday’s game looked to be heading for a goal-less draw until the 21 year-old popped up with three minutes remaining and drove home a fantastic strike from 30 yards.
Palmer added: “I scored one similar for Kettering earlier in the season, which is probably my best goal, but the one on Saturday was certainly the most important.
“Had that game not gone our way we would not be in the position we are in now, and the fact the victory meant so much to the club made it all the more sweeter.”
Palmer is clearly growing in stature with every game he plays at present and he hopes his future will remain with the Terras. He said: “This is my first full season playing every Saturday and I am enjoying it so much and looking forward to each game we play.
“I have got a good partnership going at the back with Sam Poole and Ashley Wells and I would definitely like to stay. We will just have to see what happens this season and go from there.
“Like I said I am enjoying every minute of it at the moment but who knows?”
Next up for Weymouth is a trip to second-placed Stourbridge on Saturday.
