Ross Shelton couldn’t have had more difficult opponents for his first game in charge at Parkgate

Better times lie ahead for the Steelmen

In retrospect, Ross Shelton couldn’t have had more difficult opponents for his first game in charge at Parkgate than in-form, sixth-placed Rainworth Miners Welfare in the Toolstation NCEL Premier League-and as the Wrens headed back down the M1 with the three points, Ross saw enough in his new-look squad to suggest that better times lie ahead for the Steelmen, writes Colin Muncie.
A goal in each half-from Nathan Modest after 39 minutes, and an 89th-minute clincher from Tomas Poole sealed the points for the visitors in front of a paying crowd of 89 at Green Lane.
Ross told the Parkgate FC website “I was gutted not to start with a win on Saturday, but Rainworth Miners Welfare are a very well organised side. In fairness to the lads, we’ve had a lot of personnel changes and it showed.”
Ross knows that it’ll take time for his new recruits to gel, but he’s optimistic “At times we looked lost and short of ideas” he said. “But Rome wasn’t built in a day and we will continue to progress”.
“I’m very confident results will come soon”.
