We’re in trou­ble but I’m hope­ful

ALAN Rogers was un­able to get a vic­tory dur­ing his first match in charge of Skelmers­dale United but there were plenty of pos­i­tives.

The young play­ers put in a great per­for­mance but were un­able to gain a point as Whitby Town se­cured a close 1-0 vic­tory.

Skem waved good­bye to Tommy Lawson who had been in charge for 11 years but Rogers hopes he can use his ex­pe­ri­ences from his play­ing days to turn things around for the club.

“He’s [Lawson] done a great job and been at the club for a long time but I’ve got some ex­pe­ri­ence and con­tacts in foot­ball that will cer­tainly help me,” said Rogers.

“It’s a chal­lenge that doesn’t faze me, it ex­cites me. He’s been a fan­tas­tic ser­vant but re­sults dic­tate your po­si­tion at the club un­for­tu­nately.

“I’m here now to try and get a few wins.”

Alan Rogers
