INSIDE VIEW - Richard Gregory's Bromsgrove Sporting post-Welwyn GC column

Ben Tyler 19th Mar, 2019

Bromsgrove Sporting skipper Richard Gregory writes for The Standard in his weekly column, providing his thoughts on the thumping win over Welwyn Garden City and scoring on his return from injury.


Saturday saw us make the 250 mile all-round trip to Hertfordshire to face Welwyn Garden City.

After 2 weeks off, the lads trained well Thursday and the gaffer stated how important the game was on Saturday.

With Peterborough facing Didcot, we knew there was a possibility that they could drop points.

We have seven league games left and the position we are in, if we stand any chance of winning the league we know that we can not afford any more slip ups.

And although we are relying on other teams to do us a favour, it will count for nothing if we drop points ourselves.

The conditions at Welwyn weren’t great, whilst there was a very strong wind during the game and the pitch was probably the worst we’ve played on all season.

Considering that, I thought the performance was very professional and we did the job that was needed.

On a personal note, it was fantastic to be back after five weeks out.

The gaffer made some changes and the four of us who came back in the side can count ourselves lucky in a way, as we won the recent game 5-0 and no-one put a foot wrong, so to get the nod and start the game I was very pleased.

I thought defensively we were solid and we scored some nice goals as well to add to that.

A special mention to the fans who made the journey down to support us as always it means a lot to us players.

It’s that time of the season now where the whole squad must stick together. We have seven cup finals left now and the next two coming up will be a massive test for us – it’s certainly a couple of games we are looking forward to,

I can’t wait to be back at the Victoria Ground on Saturday and I’m expecting a big crowd, so I hope to see as many there as possible roaring the boys on against a very good Corby side.

Up the Rouslers,

Gregs
