Young Stevenage academy graduate George Casey says games, wins and an FA Cup run means life is good on loan at Chesham United.
George, who has featured in defence and midfield for the Generals, is currently our only player out on loan but says it has been a valuable experience.
“It is going really good – we have won quite a few games and obviously getting to the FA Cup first round is a big bonus to the club and I was pleased to play my part in it.
“I think it is helping me become a better player. If I am not getting games at Stevenage then I am better off playing elsewhere to try and help my development.
“There was no disappointment. I know I am young and I haven’t had much game time since the start of the season so I am just happy to play.”
As Chesham only train two evenings a week, Casey still gets to work everyday with the Boro first team which has its obvious advantages.
“I get to train here every day still so the management team can keep a good eye on me, see how I am developing and obviously I still get to train with the boys which is great. I can work on what they teach me in training during games so it works out really well.”
Stevenage legend Barry Hayles is a player/coach at Chesham and George says he is a great influence on the team.
“He is good in the changing room – he always gives us pep talks and is always telling the strikers what to do. He is really good to have around for sure.”
Chesham face Bristol Rovers away in the FA Cup first round this afternoon. Kick-off is 2pm.
