McGowan and his team mates defeated a Holmer Green side who play two divisions above in the High Wycombe Senior Cup to reach the semi-finals on Tuesday.

McGowan gave his views;

You have had a tough run of games recently, how did you think they went?

1) it’s been a tough couple of weeks for us, playing a lot of very good sides and being extremely unlucky with some results and decisions not going our way in my opinion. I can’t knock the effort and attitude shown from the lads and the character shown.

What’s your thoughts after Tuesday nights game against Holmer Green?

2) Absolutely buzzing to be honest, we finally got the result we deserved after playing well and working extremely hard for the past few weeks. We played really well and showed no respect to a higher ranked side. Including getting a goal myself the goals from vin and worksy deserved to win any game as you saw!

Do you have any personal goals which you are looking to achieve this season?

3) This season I’m really determined to bring trophies back to Aston, being in the semi final of the Wycombe senior and still in the division Cup, and chasing the league title too!

Do you have any long term goals?

4) To keep enjoying my football and improving to be honest. Who knows what will happen in the next couple of years.

What’s your thoughts moving towards Saturdays game at Loughton?

5) Saturdays game at Loughton is guaranteed to be a toughy, they’re always a hard side to beat and very organised. However we did have a good result there last year so even with a few knocks from mid week we will be hoping to take 3 points and move up the table.

Any final thoughts?

6) a thank you for the opportunity to speak with you and your continued coverage of Aston Clinton FC, and also all the hard work from everyone at the club and behind the scenes. Thank you very much.
