Bromsgrove Sporting News

The latest from Sporting


This week’s Wednesday Words comes from defender Marcel Simpson; he talks about the mixed emotions following the Aylesbury draw, the latest from training and a look ahead to our Corby Town FA Trophy fixture this Saturday.

“Last Saturday saw us come up against one of the most organised teams we have faced so far this season in Aylesbury FC, and it is testament to the strides we have made as a team for the 0-0 draw to feel like a defeat.

“With that said, it is never disappointing to keep clean sheets and long may this continue. At the other end, the boys and all persons connected to the club continue to throw our full support behind our top scorer Richard Gregory as we know he will continue to deliver the goods!

“Training this week has seen Kev Barry marshal the troops like any regular day in the RAF, with no corners being cut, full concentration and commitment from everyone, all the while maintaining an impeccable attitude.

“All except for Shakka (Reece Francis), who got wind that we would be doing a twelve minute run at ¾ pace and conveniently had another engagement,” Marcel jokes.

“It has been truly remarkable the way the team has assimilated to Step 4 football, it’s as if we have been doing this for some time,” he continued.

“Yet with many of the boys being young lads and displaying a willingness to learn and the discipline to look after their bodies, there is definitely much more to come from this hungry group.

“Saturday will be another stern test of our character, up against Corby Town – so far we have risen to every challenge, and we will definitely rise to this occasion in similar fashion.

“After all, everywhere we goooo, everywhere we goooo, we’re the Bromsgrove boys, making all the noise, everywhere we goooo!!!”
