March on a memorable month

If there’s one word to describe Solly March’s start to the season, it would have to be ‘change’ — not just on the pitch, but more significantly the life-changing events off it.

The 25-year-old became a dad a week before the start of the 2019/20 Premier League season, and he reflected on a memorable month, which also saw a change of position on the pitch as well.

He said, “It’s been a bit of a shock to the system, because you can never be fully prepared for it, but it’s one of the best feelings ever, being a dad.

“I’ve enjoyed it so far, but of course it’s hard work. My wife has been really good, doing a lot of night-shifts, allowing me to stay fresh — so I really appreciate her doing that.

“Change is always good, it keeps you on your toes. I’ve been learning on and off the pitch about myself. It’s great to try different things, so I’m really enjoying it at the moment.”

March has started every Premier League game since Graham Potter’s summer arrival, and he assessed the team’s start to the campaign, and our recent trip to Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.

“We could have easily won the first three games. If we were a little more clinical in front of goal, we could be a lot further up the league table.

“The City game was tough, but we didn’t embarrass ourselves, and we played well at times. The 4-0 scoreline looked good on them, but at 2-0 we had a few chances and needed to take them.

“It could have been a completely different game if one of those chances went in, and we could have gone on to nick an equaliser.”

“But you’ve got to take your opportunities at City because they’re usually clinical, and that’s exactly what they were last weekend. They scored at crucial times and that made a big difference.”
