Weston praises new players as refreshed March Town United net fourth consecutive away win

MARCH Town United boss Jamie Weston has praised the impact of his new players as a refreshed Hares side netted their fourth consecutive away win on Saturday.

Kyle Plumb’s first goal for the club, a strike from 19-year-old Adam Cornell and a solo effort from skipper Luke Pepper led the Hares to a 3-2 win at Saffron Walden, which propels them into the top half of the Ridegons First Division.

And manager Jamie Weston has insisted that his troops - who have not lost since last month’s 6-1 thumping at the hands of Diss Town - are back on track.

“The new players have given us a boost and pushed us on a bit,” said Weston. “They’ve given us that impetus and that freshness that we needed. Kyle and Adam have come in and done a superb job.

“What we have done at March is give lads that sort of age opportunities and they have responded really well.

“After the Diss game I think the lads realised that we were in a situation where our season could have gone one of two ways. Thankfully we have pushed ourselves back into the mix.

“That game has the potential to be a turning point in our season. We knew we had let ourselves down and the players don’t want to go back to that.”

March entertain fourth-from-bottom Fakenham Town at the GER this Saturday, knowing that they have not recorded a home win since their cup victory over them in September.

“The way we play does suit away games,” said Weston. “When teams come out at us and leave us space we are always very dangerous.

“Last year one of the things that pushed us on was our home record. We need to get back to that because if we do we will be right in there with the top teams.

“We have a small squad but they’re a close knit squad who are all fighting together. The atmosphere in the changing room is brilliant.”
