Atit­tude thrills boss Rogers

Southport Visiter - - Film Reviews - BY EMMA SAN­DERS

SKELMERSDALE United suf­fered an­other nar­row de­feat on Satur­day as they conceded a 2-1 loss against Hale­sowen Town.

It was the sec­ond de­feat un­der new boss Alan Rogers but there were plenty of signs of en­cour­age­ment as his side com­pletely dom­i­nated the game.

There have been sev­eral changes at the club in 2017 fol­low­ing its switch to amateur sta­tus and the exit of for­mer man­ager Tommy Law­son.

How­ever, Rogers and his new side have pro­duced some great dis­plays in re­cent weeks and the man­ager was ex­tremely pleased yet again.

“It was pretty much the most one-sided game I’ve been in­volved in. We hit the cross bar a few times and we should have won,” said Rogers.

“It’s a young team and some of the football that we played was out­stand­ing at times. There re­ally was a lot to be pleased about.

“I felt for the lads on Satur­day. It says a lot when the op­po­si­tion come up to you at the end of the game and ap­plaud your per­for­mance.

“We dom­i­nated the game for 90 min­utes but you have to take your chances.

“I told the boys not to be down be­cause they were re­ally good on Satur­day and pro­duced a great per­for­mance.”

Skem re­turn to league ac­tion on Satur­day when they take on Hed­nes­ford Town and Rogers hopes his side can con­tinue to play the way they have.

“It’s an away game and they’re do­ing quite well in the league,” said Rogers.

“If we con­tinue to play like we did on Satur­day though we’ll start picking up re­sults.

“We’ve had a lot of play­ers who have left the club re­cently. I’ve ba­si­cally built a young team up in the space of a week though so I’m re­ally pleased with how they’ve been per­form­ing.

“Liam [Hol­lett] is one that’s come in but un­for­tu­nately he’s strug­gling with a slight an­kle in­jury so we’ll see how he gets on.

“The boys who played Satur­day and are in and out of the squad and have lots of prom­ise”.
