Hares boss wants better display

March Town are back in action on Saturday at Great Yarmouth in Thurlow Nunn Division One.

The Hares did not have a fixture last weekend. Manager Paul Crosbie is hoping for a better performance against Great Yarmouth this time around.

He said: “Yarmouth beat us back in September. It was rather disappointing when we lost three games on the bounce – two in the league and Wisbech in the cup.

“I’m still annoyed about that. We dominated the first half, they equalised before half-time and in the second half we were dreadful.

“We have got a lot stronger squad now than we did that day, and hopefully we will be able to compete a lot better.”

Key player Luke Pepper should be available after completing a suspension, which was incurred with United Counties League side Yaxley. Yaxley’s Premier Division home game to Quorn went ahead on Saturday, so Pepper should be free for the Yarmouth fixture.

Michael Anker, who has a weekend away, and James McDonough (work) are unavailable for the Norfolk coastal trip.

“Ben Lemmon and Josh Westley can fill in for Michael,” added Crosbie, who also confirmed the club have re-signed Marc Welcher, who had gone to join ex-Hares boss Brett Whaley at Yaxley.

Crosbie said: “When Marc, Luke and Ash Brand went to Yaxley they did things the right way. They wanted to have a dabble at a higher level. We said they are more than welcome to come back.

“We have to show some gratitude to Yaxley because Brett has waived the 28-day rule – he has an affinity for March.”
