Condon hoping for a bumper goal tally
AARON Condon is setting himself a lofty goal target next season.
The FC Clacton striker has been one of the club’s stars of pre-season, smashing a hat-trick in Tuesday’s 9-1 romp at Cornard United.
He also netted in last week’s 3-0 win at Long Melford.
Now, feeling confident and optimistic about the new Thurlow Nunn League premier division season, Condon is setting himself a target of exceeding 20 goals.
“I feel really sharp,” said the long-serving player.
“Last season I struggled a bit at times.
“I scored 16 goals and was joint top-scorer with Kevin Coyle.
“But I was still a bit disappointed.
“We both missed chances and should have finished with more than 20.
“But we’ve done a lot of work on our finishing in training – something we haven’t concentrated on in the past – and you could see that the other night.
“Hopefully practice will make perfect and I’m definitely going for 20-plus.
“All strikers should set a high target.
“There’s no point starting the season with anything less.”
