Jonah’s Jottings – Easter Weekend

Joint manager Mark Jones hopes his 74 side will put much needed points on the board this weekend, as the greens face both Newcastle Town and Witton Albion in an Easter weekend double header. 

Coming off the back of a hard fought 2-2 draw last weekend against Trafford, Jones praised the attitude of the players in order to come from behind to share the points. 

“We were really pleased with the point and on another day maybe could have taken all 3.”

“We were really happy with the performance and felt like we controlled the first 35 mins of the first half.” 

“The lads then did really well to get back into the game 2nd half after falling behind.” 
First up this weekend is a home fixture against Newcastle Town, before a crucial local derby on Easter Monday. Jones spoke of the importance of the games, but also admitted himself and co-manager Matt Woolley won’t make many changes ahead of kick off on Saturday. 

“We expect Newcastle to be strong and physical so it will be a tough game.”

“To be honest, it is a must win game but we won’t change much. The lads have given everything over the last few weeks and so long as they give their all, that’s all we can ask for.”

“As for Easter Monday, with it being a local derby it always ads that little extra. Personally, I am looking forward to playing in and it would be great to take something from the game for all the supporters after a long tough season.” 

“Hopefully we can take some points this weekend after the news of the chairman. It would be extra special to get some points for him. All the players and staff want to wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him on the terraces again soon.
