So that’s (Capital) One Cup that we don’t have to worry about this season, leaving us to concentrate on our league position!
It was, of course, disappointing to lose on Tuesday evening but Mark Lillis’ changed side gave us further evidence of the transformation that he has brought to the squad since the opening day of the season.
Mark has confirmed that he’s in charge until the international break and there are many Town fans who would be happy to see his tenure become a permanent one.
It also seems highly likely now that any further strengthening of the squad will have to be made with loan signings.
At the same time it should be acknowledged that our revised formation with round pegs playing in round holes, allied to the quality acquisitions that have been brought to the club, has minimised our limitations.
Only two days to wait now for a chance to put more points on the board with a repeat of our last result at Watford!
Don’t miss it. There are still places available on the HTSA coach, due to leave the usual stadium spot at 9.30 on Saturday morning, priced at only £15 for members. Ring or text our travel line number, 07905 580784. (Apologies for the incorrect number quoted last week).
The blank weekend seven days later will be followed by a Heavy Woollen/HTSA/NSL meeting arranged for Monday September 8 at Millbridge, when the principal guest will be Nigel Clibbens, who should have much to tell us about his busy August!
The main meeting will begin at 8pm, but this will be preceded by the HTSA AGM at 7.15.
