Flying left-back Ryan Go has extended his stay at Wembley Park for the 2019 NPL2 season, in what will be his third year at Box Hill United.
Speaking exclusively to United’s media, the 23-year-old revealed how he cherishes being part of a club that matches his style and mentality.
“I am feeling very excited and looking forward to the next season. I have always been treated very well at Box Hill [United]. I have been here for two years and been very happy,” said Ryan.
“I like the philosophy that they have in terms of football. They want to play out from the back and play good, attractive football. That’s what I want to play as well.”
Since his arrival at United, Ryan has made a name for not shying away from putting in the hard yards. The former Northcote City defender pin-pointed several factors as the cornerstones to his steady rise.
“Hard work would be the number one reason, and obviously, the teammates around you. If you get along with them well, you become more confident yourself,” he said. “Consistency comes with experience, and I am constantly getting more experience.”
Notably, Ryan spent part of his formative years with Dutch giants Feyenoord’s academy. Ahead of his fifth season in the NPL, Ryan feels he has reaped significant benefits.
The RMIT Biomedical Engineering student reflected: “Over there (Feyenoord), they were really hammering on the little details. Passing with the right speed, at the right foot, to make it easier for your teammates.
“Decision-making is huge. During training, they would question you on your actions – ‘Why did you pass there?’; ‘What was your train of thought?’; ‘What were you expecting to happen?’.
“That’s one thing that I have been trying to implement, to anticipate and read the game, and make the game easier for my teammates.”
