Yeovil Town midfielder Sessi D'Almeida spoke to local journalist Chris Spittles, in an interview for BBC Somerset, after he had scored in the 2-0 win over Stevenage on Saturday 25th August 2018.
CS: Sessi, well played again, but a first goal for Yeovil. How good a feeling was that?
SD: It's a wonderful feeling. It's the best one I've had. I think it's a good goal. I tried to be focussed on the technique. So I'm so happy and so proud to be part of this team. We have to keep going and we'll keep going - that's it.
CS: A brilliant win today, and thoroughly deserved it. A good performance from the whole team.
SD: Yes, it's a massive three points and we're so proud of what we have achieved now. It's a good performance today.
CS: For you, it continues your excellent start. How much are you enjoying life at Yeovil?
SD: To be fair, I'm very very happy. That's it - very happy, and you can see it on the pitch. I'm so happy to be there.
CS: The fans love you. Are you aware of the connection that you've got with the fans already?
SD: Yes, it's a good connection. I'm so happy also to enjoy the fans. I'm happy and proud of this town, and I'm proud of this club, and I can feel it on the pitch, with all of us. That's the teamwork and the team. Everything is the team.
CS: We obviously see you play in the game. You've got this never give up attitude. You're running all over the pitch and you obviously just enjoy being involved in all the action.
SD: Yes, I never never ever ever give up. It's one of my first positives. I try to always fight. That's my work, run, tackle and be part of this game.
CS: I've got to ask you, when you were growing up, had you even heard of Yeovil? Quite a small place in Somerset.
SD: Yes, I don't know really what to answer with this, but it's a good town, and everything is good.
CS: I guess you're relishing playing regular first team football. I think at Blackpool you were in and out, but here you have started every game so far.
SD: Yes, I'm very happy to start every game. The gaffer has this confidence in me. I have confidence in the gaffer, and I trust him like I trust my mother. So I'm very happy to start every game, and like I say, I will never give up, and I will never let him down, and never let the team down, and I'll never let the fans down. I give everything - that's why.
CS: You were clearly every excited for your goal, as you put your shirt over your head. How disappointed were you that you then get a yellow card for that.
SD: I'm not disappointed but that's the rule. I was so excited that I didn't know what to do, so I just took my shirt over my head. But it was okay - I just had to control my game after, so it was fine.
CS: You were not too worried about the yellow card then?
SD: No, I was not too worried. I was just the people around me who were worried because I am fighting for every ball. But I am okay, and I know what to do, and I was not worried about the yellow.
