Salisbury’s White Knight
Salisbury City FC are delighted to announce that Charlie Knight has committed himself to the Whites in a new deal.
The former Bashley man is enjoying a fine run of form, with four goals to his name this season, including a magnificent individual effort against Brackley Town.
Speaking to the club’s website Charlie said: “It’s brilliant to get the contract. It’s always been my target since arriving here and it’s great to have achieved that.”
It’s Charlie’s second spell with the Whites after a two year absence, but the midfielder is delighted to have been given the chance to establish himself at the Ray Mac. “It was Mikey Harris who brought me in. I’d kept in touch with both him and Darrell and I’m just grateful they were willing to take the chance and have that confidence in me.”
Approaching the half way point in the season and it’s been a successful one for Charlie, who turned 22 yesterday. Now a familiar name in a White shirt, he’s shown great signs of his ability. “It can be hard for a player to break in but I feel happy with things so far and I’m always looking to improve. My time at Bashley gave me that chance to play with a few older heads around me and without pressure. I feel that’s equipped me well and the setup here is helping me.”
Able to play at full back, it’s Charlie’s delivery and ability to run at players that has seen him carve out a regular starting place on the left side of midfield. Linking well with right midfielder Adam Kelly, another former Bashley man, the young winger’s pace and touch on the ball have proven a constant threat to Zamaretto defences this season while also winning him numerous man of the match awards.
With a new contract rightfully earned, Charlie Knight is enjoying his football and his time at the club as part of a squad that seem to be enjoying themselves.
“There’s a great team spirit here and that makes a difference. Obviously that comes with winning football matches but I think it’s more than that. They’re all great lads and you can’t always say that about a squad but I think it’s there to see. When everyone chipped in and cleared the snow off of the pitch, at first it looked an impossible task but no one complained, we all cracked on and got involved. We had help of course! But it’s things like that that are testament to what’s happening here and how much Darrell and Mikey are achieving.”
