BRIDGWATER Town manager Richard Fey has praised the efforts and attitude of his current squad following Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Didcot Town (see full report on page 79).

Three players have left the club in the past month – with Danny Wring, Toby Osman and Chris Wright all moving on – but Fey was keen to applaud the players who have stayed on.

He said: “The lads are working really hard at the moment, but we have lost a lot of players.

“I can’t help players going on to better themselves with bigger clubs, but it comes down to money sometimes and we can’t compete with the bigger clubs who can offer more money than we can – we are an average-paying side in this league.

“I’m looking to stabilise the squad now and build for next season heading into a new era for the club under chairman Richard Johnson.”

Mr Johnson said: “I know the people of Bridgwater and I know they are fully behind the club.

“I want to see a big crowd on Saturday to cheer the lads on and support the club.

“As long as people support us, the club will be there – I will work my damned hardest to ensure this.

“No one can see the future, but if we are rewarded for hard work, we will be fine.”

The Robins host Thatcham Town on Saturday (KO 3pm) before travelling to Cinderford Town on Tuesday (February 11).

Bridgwater Reserves hope to get their season back on track when they travel to Yatton Athletic in the Errea County Premier division.
