First senior goal still feels “unreal” a month on

Terrell Egbri on his goal against Bristol Rovers

7 April 2020

Terrell Egbri scored his first senior goal for the club a month ago and it’s a day he looks back on with so many fond memories.

The indefinite break to the season may have come at a bad time for him personally.

But speaking to www.southendunited.co.uk a month on from scoring at Roots Hall in the 3-1 win over Bristol Rovers, the winger said it's spurring him on for more of them moments when football does return.

"I just remember all the fans getting behind us as a team,” he said.

"The senior boys who have helped me out through the training sessions, the manager and even the U23s manager.

"That day really meant a lot to me and my family.

"It still feels unreal and brings a smile to my face even a month later!

"Obviously, what has happened since that game with the virus can’t be helped but it was a shame that since then we’ve not played again.

"What I keep saying to myself is I have to keep on improving every day. Think about what I have done well and what I haven’t done as well and continue trying to improve even in the current circumstances.”

Egbri has made seven first team appearances this season, all but one of them coming since February when he got a run of games in the side.

And he's looking forward to getting back to Boots & Laces, seeing his teammates again and trying to continue where he left off when the time comes.

"From what I’ve seen everyone is keeping fit and that’s really good," Egbri added.

"A lot of the boys that I stay in contact with, they’re always training everyday, like me, and it makes me want to push more because I see them working hard as well.

"I FaceTime a few of them and see how they’re doing to keep in contact because we’re all missing being around each other.

"I’m looking forward to getting back and playing games because I miss that.

"Working hard, trying to get better every day and putting that into practice on the weekend, that’s what I miss most.

"It was a shame the season had to stop when it did from a personal perspective but it had to happen so now I want to make sure I return in the best shape and best condition possible and hope to pick up where I left off.”
