Trip to Dynamo kicks off 2018

By Neil McGowan

The First Team start 2018 with a trip to Loughborough Dynamo on New Years Day (3.0).

The team will be aiming to carry over their record breaking 2017 form into the new year.

Martin Carruthers said:
"A few weeks ago we challenged the players to reach the end of the year unbeaten and are delighted with the way they responded.

"The challenge now is to take that form into 2018. Every team wants to be the first to beat us and raise their games so we have to maintain our focus and concentration.

“Loughborough are a good well organised side who will give us a real game and they have players who will punish any slackness on our part."

Carruthers also had good news regarding Courey Grantham who has been out following a stomach operation:
“Courey has been back training with no reaction to the injury and took part on our warm up on Saturday. He has been making good progress and it shouldn’t be long before he is back in action.”

Ground Address: Nanpanton Sports Ground, Watermead Lane, Loughborough, Leicestershire LE11 3TN

Admission: Adults £8, Concessions £5, Under 16s £1.

When the teams met at Greenwich Avenue on a baking hot August Bank Holiday earlier in the season, a Deon Meikle goal after ten minutes gave us a 1-0 win in a tightly fought game.
