Boss wants his players to be brave on the ball this season
Football - Who can stop the mighty Peterborough Sports?
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.”
