GALLERY: Sigere wants to enjoy his football again

Striker looking to get regular run of games at Clarence Park

SAINTS’ French striker Jean-Michel Sigere is hoping he can enjoy his football again following his move to Clarence Park.

The Martinique born frontman has had a nomadic existence of late playing for Lewes, Horsham, Eastbourne, Farnborough, Tonbridge Angels and Margate all since 2008 but now the 33-year-old is hoping to settle down and get a regular run of games for City.

Sigere grabbed the only goal as City won for the first time this season last weekend before getting the ball rolling against Beckenham on Saturday and although the striker is happy with his form in front of goal, it’s his fitness that has given him the most pleasure.

“I’m very pleased but I’m more pleased with my fitness because the last couple of years really I haven’t had enough consistent games,” Sigere told the Herts Advertiser. “That’s four games now, hopefully I can get better and better. I want to enjoy football again and hopefully I can do that here.”

The former Stevenage striker’s first goal in City colours came at Havant & Waterlooville where he caught his ex-Lewes teammate Ian Simpemba off guard and fired past Aaron Howe to give City their first win of the season.

“It’s always nice to go away and get three points and it was our first win of the season which was good and it was against my old mate Ian Simpemba as well,” he said.

It took Sigere just six minutes to repeat his goalscoring exploits on Saturday settling the nerves with an early strike.

“I think we should have had a couple more goals in the first 20 minutes but obviously that’s the FA Cup for you,” added Sigere.

“They came back into the game and it was a bit nervous, I think the boys their heads did drop as well but I think second half we deserved to win.”
