Wakehurst boss seeks consistency in new year
WAKEHURST boss Ian Gregg is seeking more consistency from his side as they embark on the second half of their Belfast Telegraph Championship Two campaign.
“It’s been a bit of a curate’s egg of a first half of the season for us,” Gregg told Times Sport.
“We have had some really good performances and results but some disappointments as well.
“We never lack commitment or effort but applying ourselves on a consistent basis is a problem for us.
“We have plenty of firepower but we have paid the price for individual defensive mistakes too often.”
Gregg is hoping to bolster his squad in the January transfer window, to add to the arrival of Arron Lemon, who rejoined the club a couple of months ago following his release from Larne but who hasn’t been eligible to play until January.
“Arron had a spell with us before going to Larne so we know what he’s all about and he’s a good addition.
“He has been training with us for a few weeks and he has also kept his fitness levels up with a few run-outs for Star team in the Saturday Morning League.
“He’s got a good attitude and wants to do well. As I always tell our players, there are senior clubs who keep their eye on our division for good players and we would never stand in the way of a player who wants to improve himself.
“Arron played at left-back for Larne but I see him in a more advanced role down the left hand side plus he can also play just off a striker so he gives us good options,” added Gregg.
Wakehurst play their final game of 2012 this Saturday, December 29 when they host Portstewart at Mill Meadow.
