From the Dugout (Liskeard Home)

We welcome the players, staff and supporters of Liskeard for this SWPL encounter on Wednesday evening.

We come into this one on maximum points after wins against St Dennis, St Austell and last Friday a memorable victory against Camelford.

Our visitors also boast a 100% record and I expect them to be right at the sharp end of the league table come April. They’ve made some good additions to an already strong squad. We will have to be at our best to get anything from the game.

We welcome back Ross Beare into the squad tonight, following Covid isolation. Harry Hambly who has made a cracking start to the season is also available after missing Friday. Tom Crowe who has been out since an ankle injury v Helston pre season, should be back to bolster the back line. Richie Rundle will also feature having missed the game Friday due to work commitments.

On a less positive note, Tom Strike will miss the game due to a knee injury sustained at Camelford. At the time of writing this, we don’t know the extent of the injury, he is awaiting a scan. Tom has been brilliant at the Club since arriving. A great player and a managers dream to have around the place. We await his verdict anxiously.

Having had 5 games cancelled during pre season I was concerned we would be behind the pack fitness wise, however the shape the lads have been in despite those setbacks, are testament to the work they’ve done in their own time and the efforts during our fitness programme at the club, led by our strength and conditioning coach Dan Reeve.

Dan’s work is vital for us, but it is only as good as how much the lads buy into it.

Finally, as a manager who likes to watch as many games as possible, I’d like to say how thrilled I am that local football in the County is really back with a bang. Some cracking matches already and some bumper crowds.

Hopefully we can continue to do well and our ever increasing following continues to grow, the support at Camelford was brilliant and hasn’t gone unnoticed from myself or the lads.

Enjoy the game everyone.
Rower.
