We’re or­gan­ised and now we’re head­ing up­wards

TERRY Green be­lieves or­gan­i­sa­tion has been key to Burscough’s im­prove­ment since his ap­point­ment at Vic­to­ria Park. Burscough de­feated Abbey Hey 5-0 at the week­end thanks to dou­bles from strike pair Chad Whyte and debu­tant Con­nor Find­layson as well as a goal from Will Do­herty.

Green joined Lin­nets at the be­gin­ning of Novem­ber with the club’s of­fi­cial state­ment stat­ing a de­sire to fin­ish in the top-half of the HSL Premier Di­vi­sion.

The for­mer Squires Gate as­sis­tant, how­ever, has lost just one of his open­ing nine league games with Burscough sit­ting sixth in the ta­ble.

“I can’t put my fin­ger on what’s gone pre­vi­ously. All I’ve done is gone in and we’ve got or­gan­ised,” Green said this week.

“We’ve set a stan­dard. We’ve set it in­di­vid­u­ally and then if you do it in­di­vid­u­ally then if you do it col­lec­tively as a team it all comes to­gether.

“The or­gan­i­sa­tional side has taken a cou­ple of weeks in terms of de­fen­sive work on the train­ing ground, de­fend­ing set-pieces, cor­ners, etc, but it’s also the lads’ will­ing­ness to learn.

“They’re a great bunch of lads. The new play­ers have set­tled in and the ca­ma­raderie is fan­tas­tic now.”

With Find­layson the lat­est new ad­di­tion to catch the eye at Vic­to­ria Park, Green de­tailed his re­la­tion­ship with the young for­ward.

“I’ve known Con­nor for a while,” he added. “He was signed by Fleet­wood and went through the ranks and signed a schol­ar­ship there.

“He was re­leased at the back-end of last sea­son and I signed him for Squires Gate.

“I’ve al­ways fol­lowed him and as soon as I got the job [at Burscough] I was try­ing to get hold of him.

“He’s only a young lad, 18, and it’s great to see him per­form­ing.

“He works so well with Chad, they’ve got a great un­der­stand­ing, and he’s a big strong lad. There’s plenty to come from him and there’s plenty to learn as well.”
