BRANDON Goodship admitted the prospect of scoring against Southend United next season would be “a bit sweeter” than normal.

Goodship, 26, was in May released by the Shrimpers after two seasons at Roots Hall.

Weymouth duly swooped to re-sign the former Yeovil and Dorchester marksman on a two-year deal.

And the ex-England C front man revealed a goal against the Blues would enable him to throw some “banter” at his former teammates.

He told Echosport: “It would be in my sights to grab a goal against anyone I play.

“Maybe one against Southend would be a bit sweeter just because there’s still a lot of people I stay in contact with – players there.

“It would be good to have a bit of banter if I did manage to get one but not too much more than it would to score against any other team.”

After scoring 77 goals for Weymouth in his initial two-year spell at the Bob Lucas Stadium, Goodship netted just six times after joining then League One side Southend.

Asked if he has a point to prove at the Terras, Goodship said: “That’s not the way I’d put it.

“I like to show people what I’m about. I feel the first year at Southend went quite well for myself, I played a lot of games at a good level.

“I always want to showcase what I can do and impress people, but I wouldn’t say I’ve got a point to prove.

“I’ve just got to go out there, do what I can do and help the team finish as high as possible.”

Goodship has signed for Weymouth this season along with goalkeeper Gerard Benfield, fellow defenders Ben Morgan, Ollie Harfield and Calvin Brooks, midfielders Andy Robinson, Sean Shields, Cameron Murray and Josh McQuoid.
