Creative side to our play a joy to watch says Green
TERRY Green has refused to revise targets at Burscough after a stunning start to life at Victoria Park.
Burscough defeated title-challenging Runcorn Town 4-0 last week before battling to a gutsy 2-2 draw at Winsford United on Saturday.
Green joined Linnets at the beginning of November with the club’s official statement confirming his arrival 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 ten league games with Burscough sitting fifth in the table, three points behind third-place Runcorn Town.
When asked about the run of form, Green replied: “The experience of this league and above that I’ve got, this time of year I know it’s really important to grind results out.
“We’ve been conceding a few too many but when we’ve got onto the training ground and explained [to the players] their own individual jobs, they’ve taken to that.
“They just needed an arm around the shoulder and a bit more time spent with them and the creativity we’re [playing with] - not just the defensive work - is really pleasing to watch.
“We’ve got a really tough Christmas period coming up so we just need to see what happens.”
Linnets are now just two points behind third-place Bootle but Green has refused to begin re-evaluating the aims of his first season in charge, instead focusing on developing the brand of football on offer.
“With the age of the team and the experience, we’re just looking to take each game as it comes,” he added. “I know it’s a cliche and everybody says it but that’s the truth.
“We still haven’t hit a target or a mark in terms of how I want to play with a certain style of football so it’s a little bit of a step at a time and then hopefully the penny will continue to drop in how I want us to play.”
