Dean wants Sports to do bet­ter than Di­a­monds

United Coun­ties

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Peter­bor­ough Sports will aim to do what even mighty AFC Rush­den Di­a­monds couldn’t do and win the United Coun­ties Premier Di­vi­sion ti­tle a sea­son af­ter lift­ing the Di­vi­sion One crown.

All-con­quer­ing Sports - nick-named the ‘four-midables’ af­ter win­ning a quar­tet of ma­jor tro­phies last sea­son - start their com­pet­i­tive cam­paign with an FA Cup tie against Gor­leston at PSL on Satur­day be­fore mak­ing their Premier Di­vi­sion bow with a humdinger of a game at Wis­bech­nex­tTues­day(Au­gust9).

Sports man­ager Jimmy Dean said: “My chair­man has set me a tar­get of a top six fin- ish, but I think we can do a bit bet­ter than that.

“It would be nice to think we can do what Di­a­monds and some other big clubs at this level couldn’t do and win back-to-back­ti­tlesin­dif­fer­ent di­vi­sions. I don’t think it’s ever been done be­fore in the UCL.

“We fancy a lit­tle FA Cup run as well so we will be ready for Gor­leston. We’ll take care of Wis­bech­busi­nes­safterthat game.”

Star winger Jor­dan Ma­cleod is an in­jury doubt for Sports this week­end, while num­ber one goal­keeper Luke McShane will def­i­nitely miss the tie. New sign­ing Josh Ben­nis will step in.

Richard Jones (red shirt, cap­tain’s arm­band) will be a key man for Peter­bor­ough Sports this sea­son.
