The Big Interview: Adam Kennedy back at Larges Lane

Bracknell Town have another familiar face back at Larges Lane as ADAM KENNEDY makes a return. We’ve had a quick chat with the young defender cum midfielder.

Hi Adam, thanks for talking to us. Great to have you back at the club, how are you settling in?
No problem at all, things are going well. It’s taken me awhile to get my fitness back but the club is in a good place with a good coaching structure and the team are good bunch.

You’ve played in a few positions. I remember you doing really well at the base of the midfield a few years ago. How do you find it?
I enjoy playing in midfield, being able to get around the pitch and break up play. It’s good experience as your constantly adjusting and transitioning from defence to attack.

What have you been up to while you’ve been away? Have you played elsewhere?
I had a season at Ascot that was interrupted with injuries and I didn’t settle well so I took some time away from football. I moved down to Dorset for a year with work and have now been back home for just over a year – I thought it was about time I gave footie another go!

Excellent news for us! It’s certainly been a tough start to the season. Is it something that is talked about?
It’s a young squad and it’s taken a little while to settle but everyone is working hard. I don’t think it [the start] has been talked about as much people would think. Each game is a fresh start and everyone in and around the team know we can do better so everyone is positive and focusing on the next match!

Finally, a great win Tuesday, and from where I was a great atmosphere. It was ‘only’ 150 people but does a noisy crowd make a difference on the pitch?
Yes it was really good result and great atmosphere. The crowd always helps and it makes a huge difference especially when it’s close to full time. It spurs you on to keep working hard.

The team played really well and our desire to win proved evident with us grinding out a great result and moving onto the next round. Exactly what was needed in front of the great home support!
