Double Derby Day
Two weeks off at this time of the season isn’t something that we are used to having, but it has given us an opportunity to give the players some rest, but also to get some quality training under our belts. Last week we had a “Big Week” of training, and we focused on a few areas of our game, which after Thursday night’s team run, have started to bear fruit. It has also been a good time for players to return from injury and the squad is back close to full strength.
This has come at a good time for us with an important run of fixtures ahead over the next three weeks, starting this weekend with Westcombe Park at home. The local derbies that are a product of the recent league restructure never fail to produce great games and I don’t expect Saturday to be any different.
The Pilgrims are also back in action, also at home, against Dover. These games were full of spice last season and we ended up losing home and away. Both teams getting promoted gives us another opportunity to go head to head as the Pilgrims look to continue their strong start to the season.
Two massive derby games, both at the Marine Travel ground, why would you want to be anywhere else!
