Marching on: Crosbie calls for more success after March Town United end their autumn blues

AUTUMN blues came to an end for March Town United as they claimed their first win since September - and boss Paul Crosbie is calling for more success.

Goals from Danny Emmington and loanee debutant Toby Ogbonna helped end the Hares’ losing streak with a 2-0 win over Debenham LC on Saturday.

Crosbie said his side deserved the victory and urged them to make it the catalyst for an improved second half of the season.

“It was pleasing to get the win,” he said.

“Even though we got beat in the previous game I could see some green shoots of recovery.

Crosbie was pleased with Wisbech Town talent Ogbonna’s instant impact but believed all his players deserved credit for the perfomance.

He said: “Toby came on for 15 minutes and was able to get in the right position to score but it would be wrong to ignore Stuart Anderson’s driving run which created the chance for him.

“It would be unfair on the other lads not to mention they made a massive contribution to the win.”

March, who sit 12th in the Thurlow Nunn First Division, travel to Great Yarmouth Town on December 15.

Crosbie said: “I hope we will now be able to kick on. There is no reason, with our squad, that this should not happen. We need to get more points in the second half of the season.

“We will go into our next game full of confidence but if we do not put the work in we will not get anything.”

The Hares are also set to receive an early Christmas present in the form of the returning Marc Welcher.

The defender, who left March in the summer to follow boss Brett Whaley to Yaxley, is planning to re-sign for his hometown club. Crosbie is hoping to seal the deal this week.
