New bosses want to go on a roll, not have a stroll for the rest of the sea­son

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Non- League Football -

Joint bosses Dar­ren Jarvis and Mike Goode have set their sights on open­ing their North­ern­Star points ac­count in their first home­matchatthe­hel­mof the city club against Shep­shed Dy­namo.

The new man­age­rial duo have suf­fered back- to- back de­feats on the road in their first two matches fol­low­ing a De­cem­ber move from United Coun­ties League Pre­mier Di­vi­sion ri­vals Black­stones.

Jarvis in­sists the two men are learn­ing plenty of valu­able in­for­ma­tion about the squad they in­her­ited. but they also want re­sults as Star chase a third suc­ces­sive top- 1o fin­ish.

“We are not writ­ing off this sea­son in the slight­est,” said Jarvis. “It is not just about set­tling into the job and assess­ing the squad.

“We want to do much more thanthatandwe­haveafirm­tar­get of get­ting into the top half of the ta­ble. That means we need to get into the habit of pick­ing up­points. Twode­feats cer­tainly hasn’t been the ideal start to our reign but we see Satur­day as the per­fect time to start win­ning games.

“It’s our first home game in charge and it would be good to end it in pos­ses­sion of our first three points as man­agers of North­ern Star.

“Shep­shed are a handy side but there is no doubt in my mind they are beat­able.

“We­need­sevenor­eight- outof- 10per­for­mances­righ­tacross the board though and I’m sure we’ll get that.”

Left- back Scott Woods is to re­turn to Star as a short- term sign­ing.

Woods helped the club win pro­mo­tion­backin2009/ 10 and will op­er­ate in a po­si­tion where Star lack a spe­cial­ist player.

Woods is the third sign­ing of the newStar­eraafter­centre­back LukeHun­ningsand­winger Aaron Greene.

Jarvis and Goode are likely to makean­oth­er­raidon­former club Black­stones once the re­quired 28 days have passed fol­low­ing Hun­nings’ switch.
