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.”
