Crosbie planning to juggle his options as March Town United prepare for two games in four days

BOSS Paul Crosbie is planning to rotate his squad as March Town United prepare to kickstart 2013 with two games in four days.

The Hares host Thurlow Nunn First Division strugglers Stowmarket Town on Saturday before welcoming Fenland rivals Wisbech Town to the GER for their Cambs Invitation Cup quarter-final clash on Tuesday.

Crosbie said: “We’ve had nearly a month off so my thought is that we will probably juggle the squad around a bit to keep everyone fresh.

“Having not played for so long, two games in four days on heavy pitches will be a big ask. But we have got a squad we can rotate and we’ll do that with the aim of winning both games.

“We were on a good little run before this break and it would be nice to get back into that.”

March have been out of action since their 3-1 triumph over Great Yarmouth Town on December 15. Their Boxing Day trip to Downham Town and Saturday’s home clash with Fakenham Town were both postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

One Hares player who has got a run-out is Luke Pepper, who played in his former club Yaxley’s 2-1 win over Sleaford Town on Saturday.

Crosbie said: “Brett Whaley contacted me to say Yaxley were a bit short and Luke was happy to help them out so he played 55 minutes.”
