We've had a very good October and the lads have responded great since myself and Becks have taken over, says Holmesdale joint-boss Lee Roots
HOLMESDALE joint-manager Lee Roots says he is delighted with the response from the players since he took over with Tony Beckingham.
The Bromley based outfit sit in eleventh-place in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division table with 18 points on the board from 13 games.
Roots was delighted with the point they collected at Bridon Ropes in their last outing.
“Becks and I were very happy with the point that we collected in our last game at Bridon Ropes,” he said.
“They have some very quick strikers and I thought we handled them very well and defensively we looked very solid.
“A draw was probably a fair result and taking it was our third game that week, it was a good way to end the week with a deserved well earnt away point.”
Roots and Beckingham have won three, drawn two and lost two since replacing Ian Varley at Oakley Road.
“We've had a very good October and the lads have responded great since myself and Becks have taken over,” said Roots.
“You don’t need to tell you all about Becks’ credentials, they speak for themselves and for all he has done at this club prior and all we will do together going forward, it’s exciting times for everyone involved at Holmesdale.
“We again have some big games ahead this month and we very much look forward to the challenge,” Roots added ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Forest Hill Park, who sit three places behind them with 14 points on the board from 11 games.
