We are working hard to firstly stop the rot and push towards our aims for the season, says Lydd Town boss Liam Smith

Friday 28th October 2016

LYDD TOWN manager Liam Smith admits his side are going through a little bit of a sticky patch.

The Lydders are sitting in eleventh-place in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division table, having won five, drawn three and lost four of their league outings.

Smith, who took over from his father Dave in the summer, takes his side up to Bromley tomorrow to play Holmesdale.

The Dale were relegated last season but new boss Ian Varley goes into the game in ninth-place in the table on 19 points from their 12 league games.

“To be perfectly honest we have been going through a little bit of a sticky patch as including the Fisher cup defeat we have lost the last three before that we won our previous six,” said Smith.

“It’s all about little runs and the message tomorrow is simple. Stop the rot!

“We have had a two week lay-off and personally my batteries are re-charged and raring to go tomorrow.

“Holmesdale is a tough place to go to.  They’re pretty much Glebe from last season and they have players like Alfie George in goal, who is probably the best goalie in the league at the moment. Ian Varley has got a good squad there.

“I want to say to the fans to stick with me and my team.  We are working hard to firstly stop the rot and push towards our aims for the season.”
