We’ve reached the halfway stage of the season and with the busy festive period coming, Off The Park spoke to Prescot Cables Joe.
Thoughts on the season so far?
Pretty grim. We’ve not been able to get any momentum whatsoever with constant people leaving and joining. When a club changes a chairman, captain, vice-captain and full coaching team including manager mid-season it’s never going to run smoothly. Many club ‘legends’ leaving and no one has over 50 appearances for the club who currently plays for us.
Worst moment of the season & why?
Prescot Cables 0-4 Colne
Lee Bignell’s final game in charge of his interim management and with nothing against Lee he did all he could, the team spirit was the lowest I’ve ever seen it. The fans and players had no relationship with each other. It was a clear wake-up to everyone that we’re in big trouble if nothing changes ASAP. It also rained all day!
Best moment of the season?
Leek Town 1-1 Prescot Cables
A long trip on a Tuesday night on a run of 6 consecutive defeats I believed there was no hope. After trailing 1-0 most of the game Ryan Colvin scored a last-minute header getting Kevin Lynches first point as cables manager and making the trip all worth it. The first time the fans had seen the players cares and wanted to be here.
Signing of the season?
There’s been many! However one that’s stood out to me however I believe has gone under the radar is Harvey Gregson. May not have scored many goals or got many assists but as a midfielder, he ticks all the boxes are required and never stops running.
Current player of the season & why?
Mitch Allen, and would of been last season too. Maybe due to us struggling he makes more saves but without him, we’d be struggling much more. In addition, his penalty saving record is second to none and just in general tactical awareness is great. Only criticism is that he has one or two dodgy passes a game but I’m sure they’ll be ironed out once he has a consistent back four who he can have chemistry with.
Realistic ambitions for the rest of the season.
First and foremost we MUST stay up which I believe should be applicable. We’re capable of going and winning 3 in a row and that should just about keep us up. Once we’ve confirmed staying up I don’t really care about what position in the league we finish and then we work towards next season.
