Brandon Goodship has been a goal-machine this season – and it’s earned the Weymouth hot-shot the Brandon Hire Step 3/4 Player of the Year honour.
The Terras were crowned Southern League Premier South champions after narrowly missing out on the title in the previous two seasons and much of their success this year is owed to Goodship’s goals.
The 24-year-old scored 39 goals in 51 appearances, including five hat-tricks and another 15 assists for his teammates.
Signed from Yeovil Town in 2017, the striker has been a revelation at the Bob Lucas Stadium, propelling the team to a third-place finish and a play-off semi-final in his first season under Mark Molesley.
But he has reached new heights this year.
“Last season we had a really good year and finished on 97 points but got undone to three wonder goals in the the play-off semi-final against King’s Lynn,” said Goodship, who was called up to the England C team back in March.
“So we knew that this season, if we had the same sort of form we would be there or thereabouts and, thankfully, we were able to finish at the top of the tree. I am absolutely delighted.
“The coaching staff and everyone at the club has pulled in the same direction this year.
“There are so many people there that put in the hard work and don’t get recognition but we have a great chemistry at the club.
“It is a real honour and I think there are 118 teams, so to be the one player that was picked out of all of those was pretty special. It is nice to know that all my hard work has paid off.
“I’ve got my teammates to thank for giving me the ball and creating spaces around me so that I can do the business.
“Our success is massively important because you don’t realise how much it means to people.
“To see what goes on behind the scenes has been amazing.
“This is a big club with a good following and I am sure that we will have a great season next year too.
“The quality in the dressing room is second-to-none – there are some really good players in there.”
