March Town manager Brett Whaley pleased with Thurlow Nunn League stalemate at Lakenheath
Thurlow Nunn League First Division North
March Town United played out an away stalemate at Lakenheath on Saturday.
Hares manager Brett Whaley said: “It was probably two sides that didn’t really want to lose the game.
“It was a really competitive game but just lacking a bit of real quality on a difficult surface.
“There were a couple of chances for Dylan Edge early in the second half but it wasn’t clear-cut chances – I think Charlie our goalkeeper made one second half save.
“It was very heavy-going. Neither side could really get the ball down and play. It was a fair result and one we’re pleased with.
“We don’t seem able to scrape out nil-nils. I think we realised quite early on that it wasn’t going to be that type of surface that would allow us to play the way we wanted to play.
“So it is nice that the boys actually knuckled down, after in the last one winning 3-0, to get a clean sheet. We were very disciplined, very organised and it was good to see that.
“We’ve still got some firepower so if we keep a clean sheet we’ve got a good chance of winning games. We’ve got to keep doing that and then we’ll add goals in the other direction.”
The Hares on Tuesday (Jan 28) face Haverhill Borough when Whaley expects to have a full squad, adding: “The squad is about 16 or 17. That group are all doing well so it means we keep a bit of freshness when the midweek games come around.”
March then travel to Sheringham on Saturday.
