Bromsgrove Sporting skipper Richard Gregory writes for The Standard in his weekly column, providing his thoughts on last weekend’s convincing win over North Leigh and his return from injury
SATURDAY was a game where North Leigh were the visitors to the Victoria Ground, and with them being bottom of the league I suppose it was a potential banana skin.
With Peterborough playing Corby, it was important that we concentrated on ourselves and got the win.
In games like that, it is very important our application and preparation is spot on, and we couldn’t have got off to a better start being 3-0 up after 13 mins and then 5-0 up by half time.
By that point the game was done and dusted, and although the second half wasn’t as fluent as the first, the damage was already done and the lads were excellent.
There were some great performances all over the pitch – we looked solid all over, created plenty of chances and the finishing was top drawer.
I’d like to personally say congratulations to Cowls (Jason Cowley) for scoring his 100th goal for the club.
No matter what level you’re playing, to score 100 goals for a single club is fantastic, so well done Jason.
Well done also to Lincs (Kyle Lincoln) on scoring his first goal for the club.
It was nice for myself to do the warm up and pull through fine as I’m now back in full training and ready to go for the next game at Welwyn, which is a week on Saturday.
With Charlie falling ill before the game, there was a space on the bench, and although I wasn’t needed, it was nice to be back involved.
All we can do now is sit back and see how the others get on, as we now don’t play until the 16th March.
It’s out of our hands now, but we will still be doing the right things and preparing for the Welwyn game as every other game from now on in.
We want to win and then just see where we end up.
I hope everyone enjoys the weekend off and look forward to seeing the traveling fans down at Welwyn Garden next Saturday.
Up the Rouslers,
