BENN: “The season is not dead for us & I’ll constantly be reminding the lads of that!”

Plenty left for Hemsworth Miners Welfare to play for in the next week or so; they sit sixth in the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division with a chance of third place if results go their way, and they have an NCEL League Cup semi-final with Champions Worksop Town at the Distant Futures Stadium at the end of April.

Today, though, they welcome 19th-placed Hall Road Rangers to Fitzwilliam; the Haworth Park side are level on points with Goole AFC ,just a point above bottom side Harrogate Railway Athletic, and arrive in Hemsworth after a 9-1 drubbing at the hands of Liversedge in midweek; but if you think Wells Manager Wayne Benn believes that the points are in the bag tomorrow, you are very much mistaken ,writes Colin Muncie.

“We are preparing for a tough game tomorrow when we host Hall Road Rangers” Wayne told the Bootiful Game.”We are fully aware of their League position and the fact they have had a couple of heavy defeats recently but every game is different and I’m sure (Manager) Bill (Gill) will want to see a reaction and some pride from his players. They are fighting for their lives and that makes them dangerous; and if we don’t approach the game professionally then we will cause ourselves problems”.

Wayne wants to see his players bounce back from the home loss to Maltby Main last weekend. “We need our own reaction after last week’s defeat and we need to win our remaining three League games. We need more consistency, individually and collectively and to finish the League season strongly. Then -and only then-we can turn our attention to a big semi final”.

“The season is not dead for us and I’ll constantly be reminding the lads of that.”
