PIRIE: Time to man up, get our heads down and use our squad wisely

It’s a proud night for Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Bottesford Town as former player Jake Quickenden added his name to Scunthorpe’s roll of honour –and ahead of tomorrow night’s clash with Liversedge at Ontario Road, Poachers Head of Media Operations Howard Pirie is expecting his side to be “Taking care of business” and “Looking after number one” as he drew inspiration from Quickenden -and a seventies rock band from Winnipeg, Canada writes Colin Muncie.

Howard told the Bootiful Game that both Bottesford and ‘Sedge face a manic end to the season; but first, he paid tribute to Scunny’s reality TV star. “Everybody at the club is absolutely delighted this evening as one of our own -Jake Quickenden -has just won Dancing On Ice” Howard said, adding “ I personally deserve some credit as I remortgaged my house three times voting for him. But it’s not about me and tomorrow we turn our thoughts to Liversedge. We have got a hectic run in and even more so for our opponents. Any more postponements and it will prove impossible to finish the season on time”.

Howard appreciates the depth of squad available to Bottesford Manager John Corbett, and knows he‘ll use his players well. “Time to man up, get our heads down and use our squad wisely. Everybody will play a part” Howard said “Jake has proved tonight that hard work pays off”.

“In the words of Bachman Turner Overdrive- “You ain’t seen nothing yet”.”
