WEYMOUTH manager Mark Molesley said he was delighted with new signing Charlie Seaman’s performance against Kings Langley.
Seaman signed on a youth loan from AFC Bournemouth in a move that was announced prior to the game against the Kings.
He went straight into the starting line-up and played the whole match and got a dream debut when he scored Weymouth’s second goal in the 2-0 victory.
Terras manager Mark Molesley said: “I thought he equipped himself well
“He’s was a good attacking outlet in the first half and he showed his defensive qualities in the second half. When called upon he did get forward he made a difference with a fantastically taken goal.”
His goal saw him get on the wrong side of a Kings Langley defender
The 18 year old defender has previously played for West Ham before joining Bournemouth last season.
He has had experience at under 18 and at under 23 level while the move provides him experience in the men’s game.
Weymouth manager Molesley thinks he’s ready for playing at this level as he said: “He’s at a point in his development where we think men’s football will suit him.”
The move also reduces the pressure on bringing Calvin Brooks back into the team.
Molesley, speaking about Brooks, told Echosport: “It’s not too bad but it’s one of them if you push him too early it could be a problem for the rest of the season so we need to make sure that Calvin Brooks is completely ready when he does come back.
“Charlie Seaman gives us that option to rest Calvin that little bit longer so when he does come back he comes back and stays back.”
After the match against Kings Langley the youngster said: “It was very very good move to come here on loan.”
He was happy with his first appearance for the Terras saying: “It was good, it was good. I thought we played well, we dug in. We got our goals in the end which was the game plan to get right at the end.”
Seaman could make his next appearance in Weymouth’s home match against Tiverton Town on Tuesday.
