The club is not going to be built overnight, says Crockenhill boss Craig Clark

Thursday 09th October 2014
CROCKENHILL manager Craig Clark remains positive despite his side falling to their fifth defeat on the bounce.

The Crocks are in the bottom three in the Pain & Glory Sports Kent Invicta League table with seven points on the board after going down to a 3-0 defeat at Bridon Ropes in Charlton last weekend.

Clark said: “Last week we started too slowly.  It took us the best part of the first half to get our passing game going.

“The second half we hit the post twice and missed four one-on-ones.”

Crockenhill welcome basement side Kent Football United to Wested Meadow on Saturday.

Clark added: “It’s a matter of time until all parts of our game click but these players have still only played eight games together.”

The famous old club are struggling again this season, but Clark remains positive and insists he will keep to his philosophy.

“The club is not going to be built overnight. I must stick to the plans I have, looking at youth in the future, the football I want the club to play not just the first team,” said the former goalkeeper.

“I’ve looked at academy possibilities and have the experience of working with academy football.

“First we must make sure we work hard each week.  I’m looking at performances of players to ask are they the players to take the club forward?

“These are things I think any club must looking at to move forward. It’s my philosophy.”
