Kirk: "Creating And Scoring Is Just My Job"

6 September 2018

Charlie Kirk is arguably playing the best football of his young career but the 20-year-old wide man says that ‘he is just doing his job’ when creating or scoring goals.

If you take the end of last season into the equation, the Winsford-based winger has now scored six goals in his last 17 games. He has also provided a number of assists which included his superb cross for Jordan Bowery’s first of two headed goals against Macclesfield.

Before Bowery’s decisive second goal, Kirk had lit the Alexandra Stadium up with a forceful run and lifted opening goal in our 3-0 win.

Kirk told iFollow the Alex: “It was good to get the win first and foremost but it was also good to get on the scoresheet a well. The gaffer is always on to me to create and score goals. He is always saying that is what I am in the team for, so I just see it as my job. That is what I am in the team to do.

“Our home form has been decent but we haven’t managed to pick up a point or score a goal away. I think we deserved at least a point at Newport and Carlisle and we could even have won them both. We create chances but didn’t take them.

“We have got to start getting something on the road though & our next game isn't for a while, but it's at Cheltenham & we'll be aiming to come home with the points."
