Stanway Rovers boss Lakin praises morale at club ahead of the new season
12:00am Saturday 10th August 2013 in Sport
STANWAY ROVERS boss Barry Lakin has described the pre-season mood around his club as “vibrant” and “faultless”.
The Thurlow Nunn League premier division side kick-off the new season with a home match against Thetford.
And after a successful summer, Lakin is raring to go again and optimistic about the campaign ahead.
“We’re all set and the team morale is fantastic,” he said.
“It’s been one of the best pre-seasons I’ve ever been involved in. The games we had were excellent and, overall, the atmosphere around the place is faultless. It’s very enjoyable being part of such a vibrant club.”
Rovers are sweating on the fitness of three key players ahead of the game – all of whom are rated very doubtful.
Gareth Street has an ankle problem while Marlon North and Adam Sampson have knee issues. Goalkeeper Paul Rutherford is suspended.
WIVENHOE TOWN start with a home match against Haverhill Rovers.
Mo Osman’s side ended their pre-season campaign with two more victories at the start of this week. They won 3-1 at home to Stansted and 2-1 at Cornard United.
BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT will be playing their first-ever premier division game today when they welcome Felixstowe & Walton to North Road.
