Glasshoughton Welfare sit tenth in Toolstation NCEL Division One without really hitting their stride so far this campain.On Saturday they travel to Rawmarsh to tackle second-bottom Parkgate- and despite a 3-1 FA Vase win just a couple of weeks ago, Glassy’s Joint Manager Lee Vigars has been watching the comings and goings at Green Lane with interest, writes Colin Muncie for the Bootiful Game.
Lee told us “It’s all change at Parkgate with Foxy moving on last week so we have no idea who or what to expect when we arrive in Rotherham on Saturday. We’ll go there expecting them to put on a show as the players will want to impress the new management team and there could well be some new faces as well. We need to be 100% better than we were at Winterton last weekend. I missed the game in Scunthorpe but after speaking to Daz, Rich and skipper Gaz Hunter it seems only a couple of players came out of that game with any credit”.
Lee feeks that his side have yet to do themselves justice at West Street “This is now our third season at Glasshoughton with it being our third trip up there -and despite playing on arguably the best surface in the NCEL we have never performed there for some strange reason” he admitted. “Apparently there were plenty of words spoken during half time and after the game – I just wish the lads would talk as much on it as they do off, as that would of solved a number of issues last weekend and most weeks in general”.
Lee has more playing assets at his disposal this weekend “We will welcome back some key players this Saturday. Ryan Ferguson returns along with Matty Bowman and Connor Howley ;but Adam Walsh is suspended and Kyle Willis remains sidelined though injury -but is hopefully only a couple of weeks away”
