Stand In Director's Cut - Hinckley Game
This is the 'Stand In' Director's Cut from the Hinckley StourView on Saturday 3rd December 2016 from Adam Sturdy...
'STAND IN' DIRECTOR’S CUT
Welcome to Stourton Park!
Standing in for Mitch this week is a new experience for me. Joining the Club back in mid-season 2002 on loan from Bees and actually only 1 week before Mitch made his long awaited return as a player after a long term sabbatical with both Moseley and Coventry. There have been many ups and downs over the last 14 years but I am glad to say more of the former than the latter.
It seems hard to believe that we are now in December and only two games to go until the halfway point in the season. Last week away at Otley was ultimately a disappointment for all of the players and coaching staff.
Thank you however to the group of supporters that followed us on our travels and have done for many years. Long may it continue and I can tell you personally your on-going support is much appreciated by all the players. The new coaching team have been gradually making some tweaks to the way we play and train which I am conﬁdent will reap rewards in the not too distant future.
It is great to see, for the ﬁrst time in many years at Stourbridge a big competitive squad at the club which has not only made selection decisions sometimes a tricky one but ultimately challenges the players to play at a consistently high level week in week out as they know that someone is always looking to take that shirt off their back.
We look forward to rising to the challenge of Hinckley today who sit a few places below us in the league but appear to be on a good run of form. Stourton Park must remain a fortress for us this season.
Enjoy the game...
