Hares are aiming to bounce back

MARCH Town have a very good opportunity to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat when they entertain Cornard United in the Ridgeons Division One at the GER on Saturday.

Cornard are fourth from bottom in the table after winning just two league games this season but March will certainly have to put in a better shift than they did against Brightlingsea.

Skipper Luke Pepper,who has been dogged by illness this season, sees a specialist this week and will almost certainly miss the game; and Adam Rothery, who went off with a knee injury last week, is also a big doubt.

Manager Brett Whaley is very hopeful that goalkeeper Lewis Moat, who was recommended by the Fenland Citizen to the March boss, will continue his loan from Peterborough Northern Star.

Whaley said: “I had not seen him play before but I was impressed with his performance on Saturday. He is still young and could be a very good goalkeeper in time and unless he is recalled by Northern Star will play again this week. It would be very good if we can keep him for a longer period too.”

Whaley has seven-day approaches for Spalding’s striker Josh Ford and Luke McDowell from Peterborough Parkway.

Whaley added: “It looks like Ford is going to Boston Town but hopefully I can get him to sign for us as well so he is available when they have not got a game.”
