You need to be at your best every time you play, says Woodstock assistant Chris Cooper

Friday 07th November 2014
WOODSTOCK SPORTS’ assistant manager Chris Cooper says the dual-registration signing of Luke Harvey has been a boost to his team.

Harvey, 28, who has struggled to break into Faversham Town's starting line-up, scored both games in Woodstock’s 2-1 win at Sevenoaks Town, who equalised with a goal from former Crystal Palace midfielder Simon Osborn, 42.

“Last week was a good result against a very strong Sevenoaks side,” said Cooper.

“We were competitive from the first minute and quite rightly got what we deserved.

“Having Luke Harvey has been a massive plus for us and his two goals showed his undoubted quality.

“He is only 28 so he was a bit gutted to be called a veteran striker in the match report.  However, that being said he is a veteran in our young side and hopefully the lads have learnt a bit from the old boy!”

Woodstock Sports are in 12th place in the Southern Counties East Football League table, having collected five wins, two draws and seven defeats this season.

Croydon are the visitors to Woodstock Park tomorrow and Cooper wants to claim back-to-back wins.

“We will look to carry on the momentum from the Sevenoaks game,” said Cooper.

“When we played them a few weeks ago they gave us a bit of a lesson in the first 30 minutes.  Their movement was good and they were lively going forward but defensively we were not at our best and therefore got punished.

“The lads who played in that game will definitely have a point to prove tomorrow in order to redress the balance.

“Not wanted to sound like a broken record but our goal is consistency. It seems that this season everyone can beat everyone in the league so you need to be at your best every time you play.”
