Pe­tre­bor­ough Sports man­ager Jimmy Dean wants his side to push for hon­ours by play­ing high-qual­ity, en­ter­tain­ing foot­ball. It’s been a strong start to the sea­son for the out­stand­ing lo­cal semi-pro­fes­sional club who fol­lowed an 8-0 FA Cup win over Gor­leston with a 3-0 win at Wis­bech Town in their first fix­ture as a United Coun­ties Pre­mier Di­vi­sion club.

Sports are most peo­ple’s bankers for the top-flight ti­tle hav­ing as­sem­bled an­other high-class squad for this stan­dard of foot­ball.

And they will be pushed to their lim­its by de­mand­ing boss Dean.

“We got sucked into a typ­i­cal long-ball UCLgame­forthe first part of the game at Wis­bech,” Dean ad­mit­ted.

“I told the lads we don’t need to get in­volved in that. We­have­g­ood­play­er­swho­can play great foot­ball and that’s what I want to see. We need to be brave in pos­ses­sion.

“We’ve had a great start to the sea­son, but that’s all it is.

“We can play bet­ter and we have some good play­ers to come back into the squad.”

Sports will travel to Fen­land Park again on Satur­day. Au­gust20when­tack­lingWis­bechinthep­re­lim­i­nary­round of the FA Cup.
