A Few Words From The Gaffer

Ian Chapman has released the following statement after Monday’s 3-1 away defeat to Folkestone.

“Firstly, I would like to apologise to our supporters who travelled today for a really poor team performance. From the first minute, we were second best and only after getting the equaliser we got on top for a little period and then conceded a really soft second goal. From our point of view, you won’t get results if seven or so players are out of sorts. A couple of positives today were Sam Fisk getting 90 mins and in Billy Medlock- it looks like we have a player who wants to score goals. I don’t excuse myself from today’s result. I pick the side so more than anyone I am accountable and looking back at the second half of last season when we poor, I was too slow to react and stood by players for too long. That won’t happen again if I feel this group of players can’t get better quickly I won’t hesitate in making changes.

Happy New Year to all of our supporters and sponsors.”
