Weymouth centre-back Sam Sherring is “really thankful” for the excellent playing relationship he has established with experienced Guadaloupe international Stephane Zubar.
Sherring, 19, re-joined the Terras for a second loan spell this season after building an integral partnership with Zubar in Weymouth’s Southern League title-winning campaign last term. And the Bournemouth man is relishing linking up with Zubar again, Sherring revealing the popular centre-half offered him support during the summer.
He told Echosport: “He’s a great guy, on the pitch and off the pitch he always talks to me. He’s so experienced and always looks out for me. Even in the summer when I wasn’t here he was messaging me, so we get along really well and I’m really thankful for what he does.”
Sherring’s return was announced prior to the Terras’ barnstorming 4-1 win over Chelmsford City and the Cherries youngster also struck the post in the 1-1 draw at Slough Town.
However, an 89th-minute goal from Norman Wabo denied the Weymouth defence a clean sheet in the 3-1 win against Dartford – a factor Sherring is keen to learn from.
On his current stint at Weymouth, who sit second in the Vanarama National League South, Sherring said: “It’s been good, I’ve been welcomed back quite nicely. We’ve done well, luckily I’ve been able to play and we’ve got a good result (against Dartford), a good result last week and we were unlucky not to win in midweek. I’m happy to be back.
“Obviously you want to strive for perfection so (Saturday) was a bit annoying, it was the last few minutes, we’re tired and fatigued.”
