MANAGER: We just want to play whenever we can

Chris Beech on another quiet weekend

15 February 2021

If the weather decides to be kind (for a change) next up for the Blues is the Tuesday night trip to Harrogate and a third attempt at getting that particular fixture played.


COMMUNITY: Food donations having a real impact

“You've heard me say it a lot recently but we aren't going to think too much about situations we can't control,” manager Chris Beech said. “We'll prepare for every game as if we're going to play it, the rest is out of our hands.

"If we lose a game, that's not ideal, but we immediately look to the next one. We do our work, we keep our focus and we look to represent our community in the right way. That won't ever change."

“We just want to play our games whenever that’s possible and try to do as well as we can,” he added. “We’ve already smashed the ball out of the park in terms of what we’ve done in the first half of the season, possibly against the odds, but there’s still work to do.

“What we need to do is understand where we are, and I'd say that level of understanding is there within the group. The players are ambitious and hungry. They don’t need any extra motivation to play a game of football. We just need opportunity to do what we do.

MANAGER: We'll make sure what we do is good

10 February 2021

“That’s all we need – we need a training ground and a pitch to play on. These lads are so good, I’m working within a non-excuse environment that we create, but they adhere to it so well.

"The things they’ve been doing to support the community with food, to do what Rhys Bennett did for the mental health and well-being, and there’s other things that go on that don’t necessarily get in the press.

“For the players to have that normal human capability, they just need to do what they want to do, which is play football and represent the community in the right way. I know that’s why our supporters relate to them.

“If it wasn’t like that, if we were in the same position and very arrogant, that we’re above people – no, I don’t want that.

"These lads are good lads, doing good things, we’ve got a big task in front of us but what a lovely one to have. It’s far better than the one I inherited when I first came to the club.”
