FORMER Blackfield & Langley midfielder Jordan Ngalo has scored his first goal for Weymouth and his boss is confident he will "flourish into a fantastic footballer."

The teenager struck in time added on to crown the Terras’ 3-1 win over St Neots Town in the Evo-Stik South Premier on Saturday.

Having gone on for Charlie Davis in the 81st minute, Ngalo polished off a patient build-up on the edge of the box before picking out the top right-hand corner.

“It couldn’t have been any better, for me,” smiled Ngalo, who had netted four times in 26 appearances for Sydenhams Premier outfit Blackfield before climbing two leagues higher with Weymouth.

“It is kind of good to score a goal for a team at this level because it has been a big transition to go from Wessex League to Southern League because that is a two-league jump, so it is good to get going finally."

His initial shot had been blocked by a defender but the rebound fell to him and he finished with aplomb.

Ngalo explained: “I thought I had missed my chance when I took the first touch and I thought I’d give it a second go with the left foot.

“It did not quite go my way and I thought I can see the corner so I curled it in."

Ngalo signed solely for the Terras on January 6 having previously been on dual registration forms with Blackfield.

Asked about how has he found his time at Weymouth so far, he said: “It has been very good actually. I feel like I am improving as a player and obviously joining a team of quality level has also helped me improve.

“They have been very helpful on the training ground and pushing me to do my best every time I step on the pitch.

"I might not start, but you have to understand this is a very strong team and they are winning games, so I do not expect myself to come in and start playing every game.

“For the games that I have come on for I feel like I have done good for the minutes that I am getting and I feel like I am improving every game every week."

Weymouth manager Mark Molesley, whose side are pushing for promotion, was full of praise for how Ngalo has done since signing.

He said: “I am delighted for him.

"He has bags of potential and he is working hard at the moment and I am sure he will be a very big player for Weymouth.

“For such a young lad, he is strong, he is quick, he is good on the ball. He has got all the attributes, it is just bringing them out of him.

“I am sure he is going to grow and flourish into a fantastic footballer.”
