Yeovil Town goalkeeper Artur Krysiak has expressed his disappointment with his first season at Huish Park when speaking to the Western Daily Press.
Competition for the number one spot has been fierce at the Glovers this season with Chris Weale, Jed Steer and more recently Scott Loach all keeping the 25-year-old out of the starting line up.
Krysiak ended a four-year spell with Exeter City last summer to join the Glovers but has admitted that he has a difficult season personally.
“It’s been frustrating,” the keeper told Western Daily Press. “I was at Exeter for four years playing week in, week out, but when I came here I knew it was not going to be easy.
“Chris Weale is a fantastic goalkeeper, so I knew it was going to be difficult, but personally I feel disappointed, especially with relegation in the first year as well.
“But I can only blame myself. I haven’t had the chances because it’s up to me to earn those chances.
“Maybe I wasn’t good enough. Maybe I wasn’t ready. I don’t know. It wasn’t a decision made by me, but (former boss) Gary Johnson.
“But now I can enjoy a decent run of games and I will try to do my best and impress the new manager.”
The former Birmingham City keeper has made just 12 appearances for Yeovil since joining, but has been in goal for all three of Paul Sturrock’s games since he took charge in April, keeping clean sheets against Sheffield United and Swindon Town in the process.
Krysiak’s contract runs until June 2016 and he hopes he can turn around a frustrating first season in Somerset when they join League Two next year.
“For a player it’s always nice to get a run of games, which I’ve had a couple of times this season, but then I was sat on the bench. I’m glad I’ve had those chances and I think I did a good job.
“Me and Chris are in the same boat, trying to impress the manager and I want to do my best and secure that place in the starting line-up for next season.”
