Exclusive: Stevenage’s Ben Wilmot discusses his year and Liverpool, Spurs links

Famous faces from across the Football League were at the 2018 EFL Awards last night in London to reflect on the season ahead of the final few games.

There’s been plenty of action up to this point across the three tiers and with much to still be decided the final few fixtures are bound to throw up a few big headlines.

In the meantime, though, we at Football League World were at the event and managed to have a few chats with some of the players.

Ben Wilmot of Stevenage was one of those, then, and as we spoke about his impressive breakthrough season as well as what the future might hold, it became clear that game-time is the only thing on his mind…

Ben, sum up your season so far with Stevenage

It’s been a good one. I came into the team about mid-January and was just trying to keep my place and played about 15 games and I’ve just been trying to work hard and put my all in on the training pitch.

I was playing full of confidence because I thought I played quite well and it’s been good then on really.

The likes of Liverpool and Spurs have been mentioned ahead of the summer, do you pay attention to that at all?

No, not really. I’ve just been trying to play as many games as I can this season. There aren’t many 18-year-olds playing in League Two so I’ve just been trying to get as many appearances as I can and we’ll see what happens in the summer.

Is first-team football all you’ll be looking for?

Yeah, pretty much.

We might only play in front of four or five thousand people but playing in front of that is a real boost and you want to play in front of people every week.

Going into an U23 side might not be what I want to do at the moment because getting as many professional games as I can is the aim right now.
