Josh Casey admits he is “honoured” to captain Woking and he played his part in leading the club to victory as they bounced back from a goal down at half time to beat Truro City 3-1, report Surrey Live.
The articulate left-back was one of five players who joined boss Alan Dowson in switching from Hampton & Richmond in the summer and knows the captain’s armband may be given to Charlie Wassmer when he is fit.
For now he is loving the responsibility and was a happy man after Jack Cook plundered two goals from Max Kretzschmar deliveries and Kane Ferdinand bundled in too as Cards – who were shocking in the first half – went up a few gears in the second, Kretzschmar evening having a penalty saved late on when he could have made it four.
“No disrespect to Hampton or any other club in non-league football but you look at size of the ground, the people and the history and it’s a real honour for me to captain this club,” maintained Casey.
He knows his team were poor in the first half but they showed they are a second-half team as they came on strong once again – despite being without key players.
“We don’t want to make a habit of it but it appears that way,” he said. “I think in the first half we struggled to get going.”
