The year of the drought

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - By PAUL DI­A­MOND

IT’S in the tough­est of times where teams are built, friend­ships are made and the true mean­ing of faith is learnt.

When you con­tinue to bat­tle with lit­tle re­sult, there is only so much cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als can take.

To give up would be the easy op­tion for most, but who wants to take the easy path­way of life.

There will be lessons learnt for the whole play­ing group and I be­lieve that there are lessons that will turn boys into men.

The game on Satur­day has al­ready been for­got­ten.

There was a score, which has been dis­missed, a chance that early on seemed achiev­able but quickly ceased.

The im­por­tant mes­sage to the play­ing group was to con­tinue on this year and have a crack but more im­por­tantly have fun and build friend­ships.

We can only hope that we have a break­through in our re­cruit­ment process.

Once the break­through oc­curs, it will be a mat­ter of which doors to open and which doors to close.

Given we are the bot­tom team in the com­pe­ti­tion there is a long road ahead, turn left, turn right, we can­not go any lower as a foot­ball club.

On­wards and up­wards we go.

Given the op­por­tu­nity I would like to per­son­ally thank all the peo­ple who day in day out give ev­ery­thing they can to the club.

We will fight ev­ery time we walk out on the ground and be­lieve that there is light at the end of the tun­nel.
