Brangman remaining focused on scoring form
Chae Brangman refuses to get carried away by the overwhelming success he has enjoyed early in a stint with new club Robin Hood.
The towering striker has netted seven goals, including back-to-back hat-tricks, in his first three outings since joining Hood during the last transfer period.
But rather than getting caught up in the hype, Brangman is keeping his feet firmly on the ground and taking matters in stride.
“It’s a good start to the season, but I’ve just got to stay humble and just take every game as they come,” he said, “Right now, I’m just having fun and enjoying the game for what it is.”
Brangman hit the ground running as he netted on his Hood debut in a 3-1 victory over PHC Zebras in the season-opening Charity Cup that was followed by a hat-trick in a 7-0 victory against his former club Devonshire Cougars in the Dudley Eve Trophy.
The goals continued to come as he grabbed his second successive treble in Hood’s 8-1 victory against Somerset Trojans in the Premier Division on Sunday.
Asked if his prolific start to the campaign exceeded his expectations, Brangman replied; “I wouldn’t say exceeded, but I can’t complain. I’m just having fun in training sessions and games.”
Brangman has made a seamless transition to his new club and is encouraged by the promising start he and his team-mates have made.
“It’s a real talented group and right now what we are bringing to the stage is pretty good,” he added.
“It makes a lot of teams want to come out and beat us and put their best foot forward when they come out, so that gives us a little bit more pressure, a little more fight to give.”
While he is thriving domestically, Brangman has yet to showcase his talents on the international stage at senior level. It is an opportunity he would grab should it present itself.
“If it comes I will definitely take advantage of that opportunity,” he said. “You can’t go wrong with wanting to play with the national team.
“But like I said, just with the club right now having fun enjoying football and if this national squad opportunity does happen to come up, then I will take advantage of the opportunity.”
