Remi Garrett says the improved team spirit at Bury Town can help the team to go a long way this season.

Remi Garrett says the improved team spirit at Bury Town can help the team to go a long way this season.

The Blues winger scored the second goal in Bury’s 3-1 win against Brentwood Town at Ram Meadow last weekend, a result which leaves them on the verge of climbing back into the Ryman League Division One North play-off places.

Just three points separate Cheshunt in second place and Tilbury down in ninth, the latter of whom Bury visit for their final game before Christmas tomorrow (3pm).

And Garrett says the Blues will go to Chadfields this weekend full of confidence after getting back to winning ways last time out.

“It’s a massive game,” he said. “We’re all feeling confident after Saturday and we do well away from home.

“When I first came to Bury they were in the Ryman (League) Premier Division so we had a stronger squad, but it had to be stronger because we were in a better league.

“The squad we have now is better than last year, not just talent wise but also the team bond. We’ve got a good team spirit as well.”

Bury had lost seven of their previous 11 league games before last weekend, and Garrett believes the victory over Brentwood can now help the Blues reignite their promotion push.

“It was an important game for us,” the 23-year-old said. “Our aim is to get promotion and it’s important we are winning at home.

“It was a good feeling in the dressing room after Saturday’s game. We had to show some character and put the indifferent performances we’ve had behind us.”

Garrett joined the Blues in the summer of 2014 from lower-league Ipswich Wanderers, where he had fired in an impressive 38 goals to help them secure promoted into the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division.

Although used as a striker during his time at Humber Doucy Lane, the Bury winger admits he needs to add more goals to his game again - Saturday’s strike was only his second goal this season and 11th in 110 appearances for the Blues.

“Goals is something I need to add to my game,” Garrett said.

“I’ve got quite a good record with assists and creating chances.

“(At Wanderers) I was playing up front and to be honest it was a very different level. It wasn’t too competitive for me.

“I still like playing in the forward positions and I like to play out wide where I can run at full backs and put in crosses.

“I need to get myself into more goalscoring opportunities and then hopefully the goals will come.”
