It's hard to think Sam Beresford struggled to get into the Uphill Castle, then known as Westland United, side when he first played adult football and found himself playing left-back.

When he did get into the team Beresford only scored 15 goals in his first 110 senior games but since then a change of positions to on the wing before moving to a forward has also seen a change in form, as he racked up 145 in 172 games for Uphill then Clevedon Town.
His record this season has certainly mirrored similar to that when he first started playing. In his first 10 games for the Seasiders Beresford scored just three goals but he has now scored 10 in his last seven games, including two hat-tricks.
But what caused the big change?
"Well originally, I was not a striker and to be honest when I first started playing adult football I struggled to get into the side," he said.
"I was quite short then and struggled with the physical side of the game and when I did get in the team, I was at left-back for a long time. But I gradually moved my way up to winger and then striker and started scoring regularly."
It is not just his scoring, which has stood out but Beresford's work rate working all across the front line, continuously tormenting defenders and creating space for others with Alex Camm, on 10 goals, and Freddie King with eight.
“I’m not a massive hold up striker and I prefer to go down the side of centre-halves and I tend to do a lot of running and look for a lot of give and goes," he added.
"I don’t think I have modelled myself on anybody in particular, but when I was younger, I liked Fernando Torres and I’m a massive Steven Gerrard fan not that he’s a striker, but he did score some good goals!”
Beresford is also someone who likes to set himself a challenge and says he has now found his feet while coming to terms with the difference in set-up.
“I do set a target every season, but we’ll wait until the end of the season before revealing it and I think it helps to set yourself a personal target," he added.
"Obviously, it’s a bit different this season stepping up two levels, where the all the players in all teams are good, whereas at County level there tends to be four or five good players and then a mixed bunch. At first, I found it a bit stronger and a bit faster, but I’ve got used to it now after a good run of games."

Beresford said his ambition is to keep scoring regularly to help the team and after such a good start to the campaign to finish as high as possible with a FA Vase run thrown in and look to continue their unbeaten run in the Toolstation Western League Premier at Wellington tomorrow (Saturday).
He said: "We’ll aim to keep taking it a game by game and keep winning."
