Morrell On Fixtures

Thursday Jul 6, 2017

 Manager comments on opening schedule!

 Andy Morrell yesterday spoke to Tom Feaheny of The National League official website regarding the 2017/18 fixture release.

 "I like the local derbys as there are normally good atmospheres like Kidderminster, Nuneaton, Telford also the big boys like Salford and York" he said.

 This season teams that finish sixth and seventh will also have the chance of going up via the Vanarama National League North play-offs and Morrell believes plenty have what it takes to fight for a place.

 "I see the league being ultra competitive this year. Some big teams and budgets but would also see another 14 teams thinking they have a chance of the playoffs so you have to hit every game hard and try and get something out of it."

 Morrell says he is pleased with how pre-season has started."I'm really pleased with the lads we have kept from last season and added some real quality to that. We still have a bit of work to do but at this point we are ok.Training wise all lads in these leagues are fitter than they were, so preseason is just about strengthening players fitness and getting them game ready, so playing games and the right types of games ,is the key."

 One player who will not be with the club this season is Danny Newton, last season he was a stand-out player for the club, but has since joined Stevenage. Morrell says he is delighted for the forward to be making a move to the League Two club.

 "He has worked hard at his game and is a real pest. His attitude is great and we believe we have made him a better player whilst he has been with us and this is reward to all involved. I really hope he kicks on and scores plenty of goals, league two defenders don't know what's coming."
