After Gibraltar United registered their first win of the season by beating Angels 2-1, we caught up with goalkeeper Kyle Goldwin to get his thoughts after the hard-fought victory.
“We knew Angels were going to be a tough opponent but words can’t express how proud I am of all my team mates, they gave 110%.”
Goldwin’s performances this season have not gone unnoticed by the Gibraltarian football community, with talk of a potential call up to the full national team for the friendly against Liechtenstein in March. This would be a great reward for the Gib United keeper, who said “It would make me very proud (to be called up to the national side), not only myself but my family as well as I sacrifice a lot of my kids and wife’s time to my football commitments.”
“This would not be possible without their full support and my managers belief in my abilities.”
The win pushed Gib United up to four points from their first six games, having played less games than everyone else this season. Having already built a four point gap over Angels and Glacis in the bottom two, the team will look to extend that gap as they aim to stay up in their first season back in the Premier Division.
Goldwin says that the win has “boosted their confidence”, while also commenting that “We have shown that we can play good football and give anyone a good game.” They face Manchester 62 in the next game, and with their opponents on a poor run of form, Goldwin reckons his team have every chance of beating them on Saturday. “Manchester 62 have very good players and we know that, but football is a funny old game. Who knows what will happen on Saturday, but we will definitely give everything we have to try and get something out of the game, if not a win.”
