JIM WARD UPDATES BEFORE THE WEEKEND

Jim says “It has been a great start to the season with us sitting in the top half of the table. We rested three players on Tuesday night against Herne Bay with Tom Loynes, Scott Heard & Nick Treadwell having injury niggles. Unfortunately we had three players who came off during the game. Ashley Ulph, Luke Watkins and Ollie Gray picked up various injuries. Both Ollie Gray and Scott Heard look doubtful for the weekend whilst Ashley Ulph will face a late fitness test. Nick Treadwell, Luke Watkins and Tom Loynes should be fine.

We still feel we are ahead of where we expect to be in our three year plan. Without putting undue pressure on our defence it is definitely an area that we need to concentrate to ensure we do not keep “leaking goals for fun”.

We obviously keep looking for opportunities to strengthen our squad. We hope you are enjoying the football and look forward to seeing you either down at Worthing on Saturday or at home next Tuesday. “
