Interview: ‘Just give him the ball’ – Killick believes in Genesini’s talent

Tom Killick has continued his praise of loanee Brooklyn Genesini after the AFC Bournemouth youngster continued his strong start in Poole colours.

Despite his spell at the Black Gold marking his first foray into senior football, Genesini has yet to put a foot wrong since his debut against Beaconsfield – and Killick believes there is more to come from the youngster, if his side can supply him possession.

Killick told All Poole Aren’t We: “I thought Brooklyn looks a real class player. You’ve got to learn who your match winners are.

“I remember years ago, with Luke Roberts – you used to tell everyone just give him the ball every time we got it.

“Brooklyn’s a little bit more defensive than Luke – but he is very good on the ball. As our players are learning about him, I feel their confidence in him will grow, and hopefully we get him more and more of the ball.”

A right-back by trade, Killick has largely deployed Genesini slightly further up the pitch in the hope of allowing the Cherries youngster the freedom to roam forward.

Despite bigging up Genesini’s attacking talents, Killick also lauded the skills more suited for a defender, with Genesini’s arrival coinciding with two cleansheets for Poole.

“If we can get him plenty of the ball, I think he can be real asset to us. He was very good against Swindon Supermarine.

“He defended well, looked very good in possession,  particularly in the first half. We just need to learn to give him a bit more of the ball.

“It’s the same with Jack Dickson. He is a real exceptional talent, you’ve got to get a hold of the ball and then look to give it to these players, it’s fairly simple really.”
