LUKE Gullick says the lure of moving to a higher league finally persuaded him to swap Calne Town for Swindon Supermarine.

Gullick, 20, from Chippenham, only moved from Toolstation First Division outfit Biddestone to Premier Division Calne in the summer but has impressed with ten goals this season.

He said: "They (Supermarine) pass the ball around so well and it was a team I really wanted to play in.

"I just want to get playing again - it was the idea of playing in a higher league which tempted me."

The striker attended Supermarine's 7-0 Southern League Division One South and West victory over Beaconsfield SYCOB on Tuesday night and still cannot believe he has signed for the club.

He said: "To move up two divisions in five months is fantastic but very fast. I wouldn't have believed it if people told me this is where I would be six months ago.

"I am intending to stay here slightly longer than I was at Calne but if a bigger club comes in for me and I am doing well then I would have to consider it."

Despite leaving Calne behind after just half a season, Gullick paid tribute to the club and management duo Robbie Lardner and Simon Hillier.

"They have helped me develop and progress and even though I have left I will still remember what they taught me," he said. "Everyone helped me settle in straight away when I moved and it is a really good club."

Gullick will go straight into the Supermarine squad for Saturday's home match with Hanwell Town. They then travel to Thatcham Town on Boxing Day.
