LYDD TOWN coach Liam Smith says he firmly believes that the club will be challenging for the Kent Invicta League title at the end of the season.

The most southenrly club in the division are in sixth-place in the table, having won eight and lost four of their 12 league games so far and are 14 points adrift of league leaders Glebe.

Tomorrow they travel to Rusthall, a side that are one of three struggling outfits in the division, sitting in the bottom three on seven points, having collected one win and four draws from their 15 league games.

“Looking forward to getting back to league action tomorrow after a few postponements and hopefully get on a run,” said Smith, whose dad Dave manages the side.

“Training has been good and everyone’s looking forward to the busy Christmas period.

“This season so far has been ok, but only ok. We have played some excellent stuff at times but not for long enough periods.

“The squad is only just starting to settle down as we lost players to higher opposition and we have been plagued with injuries but they are clearing up.

“Myself, my dad (Dave) and Ross Bruce (the management team) plus the whole squad firmly believe we will be there or there abouts come May.”
