UPDATE ON LAST FEW WEEKS
It's been a number of weeks since I last placed a blether and my apologies for this but I have been out of the loop due to having an operation. On this I am recuperating well and hope to be back at the helm for pre-season which I expect to start in Mid June. During this time though, Graeme, Paul and Craig are running the show.
Anyway, the last few weeks has seen the results go against us. Losing to Deveronside, Hermes, and Dyce. However, although we have lost , by all accounts we have continued to play football and not resort to the big punt. However, as most people know sometimes you need to change your game for certain teams and this is something we as a coaching team need to look at and sort out.
Last Saturday though saw the guys get a much needed 3 points with what I would say was a great win away to Hall Russells. This being against the first team we as the management team played and initially lost 4-1, so hopefully this shows we are improving.
A few changes in personnel have taken place too. These I think have been mentioned but to clarify: Cove Rangers FC recalled Devin Colbert and was then immediately farmed out to Huntly FC. Devin had come on in leaps and bounds with us and as Gordon has mentioned we wish him all the best in the future. We did manage to complete the signing of another young Cove starlet; Dawid Omernik who has settled in well with the squad.
On the injury bench - Young Taylor Christie has finally had keyhole surgery on his aggravated knee and we hope to see him back with the lads for pre-season. This I feel will be the same for luckless Darren Reid. A player that was injured in our 1st game back in September - ironically against Hall Russells and has not played since. Again it looks like a knee issue and this will hopefully be rectified in early May. We wish both players all the best and look forward in having these talented players back for next Season.
We have 7 games to go with the next 3 games being Banks O Dee on Tuesday night at home and then away to FC Stoneywood and Stonehaven. All very tough games and where we need to take points to ensure Super League status. Very much in our hands.
Anyway, I will hopefully make it along to some of the games and hope to see as many of you there especially at the remaining home games, Banks O Dee, Ellon Utd, Inverness City and Culter FC.
