Tonight, we face Newton Aycliffe in what is a huge game and a great fixture to be involved in. I’m sure all the fans are looking forward to this game as much as the players are.
This is a rivalry in every respect not just because it is a local derby but Newton Aycliffe are fighting for every point at the minute the same as we are.
We come into this game after a very disappointing result on Saturday which resulted in us being knocked out of the FA Vase which we as players, management and a football club are extremely disappointed about. We must put that behind us though and bounce back by picking up maximum points tonight.
We owe the fans a performance after Saturdays disaster and I couldn’t think of a better fixture to put things right.
We know as a team we need to be more consistent with our performances and we are working hard on the training ground with Colin and Dion to make this happen.
On a personal note the last few month has been a very frustrating time for myself trying to recover from my operation and then picking up a knock against West Auckland 3 weeks ago. I’m hoping to get some minutes in the tank tonight and get back to full fitness in the coming weeks.
Let’s just hope we can put a performance in like the one against West Auckland and put a smile back on everyone’s faces.
Thank you for your continued support
