Ahead of tomorrow’s Pitching In Southern League Premier Central match, at home to St Ives Town (3:00 KO), manager Gavin Hurren has previewed the fixture, as well as reflecting on last weekend’s match and words of thanks as a player departs…

“Firstly, welcome to St Ives. I really enjoyed the game we played a couple of weeks ago against them. There was some good goals and it was a really competitive match. Myself and all the lads are looking forward to the rematch.

“Regarding Royston last Saturday, it was nice to get a real big point away. A clean sheet and a solid performance. I also want to welcome Jordan Wilson to the squad, who made his debut in that game.

“I was disappointed with the fixture being called off in the Worcestershire Senior Cup against Pershore Town on Tuesday, because it would have been good to get minutes into guys that haven’t played many matches lately. But weather has done for us and I’m looking forward to the match in the New Year.

“A bit of player news, as James Mace has been called back by Leamington, which is a shame. He’s been fantastic for us and he’s been a credit and I’ve really enjoyed working with him but, unfortunately, Leamington have pulled him back on the dual-registration agreement.

“Going forward, we’re five undefeated in the league, which only two other teams in our league have currently achieved.

“Tomorrow’s match will be a really competitive match. We’ve got a couple of games thick and fast with Redditch United on Monday night, so we’re going to need everybody firing and fighting fit.

“Finally, thanks to the fans for their support. The support down at Royston was amazing. It was nice to speak to a few fans before and after the game as well and I know we’re going to have massive support over the next few games. We’re going to need everybody supporting each other to get some vital points on the board.”
