George Murray talked to goalkeeper Chris Weale on 26th July 2004 as part of the Press Day at Huish Park.

GM: What did you gain while training at West Ham?

CW: I gained a lot of confidence as it shows that you are up to their standard and I learnt a few things from the goalkeeping coach there which I have taken into my game and it was a brilliant experience for me.

GM: Has Gary spoken to either you or Steve about who will be first choice keeper this season?

CW: No not at all, all I have got to do is to work hard in training and keep focused on my game and the best man, in the managers eyes, will play in the team. Saturday 7th August is the most important time to be playing in the team and hopefully I will be playing in that side, if not I will just have to wait for my chance.

GM: How have you personally found pre-season?

CW: I worked very hard during the summer to get myself fit enough but the first few days were difficult. But it is playing games which is the most important thing. I am feeling strong and probably the fittest that I have ever felt and the sharpness in games will shortly follow.

GM: Steve ended up in goal last season. Is there a healthy competition between you two?

CW: We push each other every day and we have got a good friendship on and off the pitch. It is great to have someone of his standard pushing me all the time and it is great for the club also.

GM: Where do you think that we will finish this season?

CW: Hopefully gaining promotion and finishing in the top three and I think with the squad that we have got here we can.
