Still A Lot Of Football To Be Played This Season

4 years ago By The Saxons Webmaster

Stockport Sports Chairman John Hindley was in bullish mood following their disappointing 2-1 reverse at home to Bootle on Saturday.

The defeat leaves The Saxons some way adrift of their conquerors and they now cannot afford many more slip ups this season if it is to be one of success.


“Sometimes you lose a game and you just have to hold your hands up and say we were second best on the day” said Hindley. “This was definitely one of those games. We need to learn from it and move forwards, and I'm sure we will do. This result does not end our season. We will continue to work hard and only worry about our own results, then we'll see what happens. There is still a lot of football to be played this season”

Hindley also indicated that the club has increased it's scouting network locally as they look to bring in the best players they can find.

“We're a club that are looking to progress and it would be silly of us to ignore any game of football in which there may be a player that fits our requirements. If that means a Sunday morning game then we'll have someone there to watch, if that means a local game on a Saturday then likewise we can arrange for someone to be there. The local football leagues in this area are of a very high standard, the Stockport and District Sunday League for example is full of players who play at this level or above on a Saturday. This is a Community Club and we are constantly looking to bring in players from the Stockport area if we can”

“We are all a little deflated after this loss, but we have to pick ourselves up, yes we've had a few disappointing results lately, but that gives us a challenge. As a club we like to take on challenges not let them defeat us. I can assure all our supporters that we're constanly looking for ways to improve the team and we'll be back on the training ground as soon as we can be looking to put this result behind us”
