We will put on a show as we always do, says Sheppey United boss Kevin Hake
Thursday 09th October 2014SHEPPEY UNITED manager Kevin Hake says his side have acclimatised to life in the Kent Invicta League.
The club have been promoted from the Kent County League and lie in the top four in their new surroundings with six wins and three defeats from their nine league games.
Sheppey United are only three points adrift of league leaders Hollands & Blair and Hake says he’s satisfied with the progress being made on the island.
Reflecting on their eight-goal thriller at home to Bearsted last weekend, Hake said: “Our last game was a great one for the spectator with them witnessing eight goals in a 5-3 win!
“We are just finding our feet now in the Invicta League and are pleased with progress at this stage of the season to be three points from top.
“We are starting to get players back from injury and suspension so I expect us to get stronger as we reintroduce these into the squad and also as we learnt to acclimatise to playing at this higher level.”
Hake expects a tough encounter against Richard Dimmock’s Meridian VP on Saturday.
He said: “Saturday’s game sees us up against Meridian in a repeat fixture from two weeks’ ago when we did a smash-and-grab job scoring three goals in five minutes after trailing 2-0.
“We fully expect them to want to avenge their defeat as it will be so prominent in their minds. Regardless we will put on a show as we always do.”
