One more outing then it’s home sweet home for Pickering Town
11:21am Friday 6th September 2013 in Sport
Pickering Town’s busy away schedule in the Northern Counties East League premier division is to end after the trip to Long Eaton United tomorrow, writes Mat Robinson.
Manager Jimmy Reid is confident that playing at home – starting next Tuesday against Winterton Rangers – will be a huge advantage to the team and expects the players to respond well.
“It’s going to be nice to get back on the Pickering pitch. We are looking forward to playing at home and not having so many long trips,” he said.
“We had a good home run last season and we hope to do the same this time round.”
The Pikes have been unable to use their home turf in the first seven league fixtures due to the ground’s cricket commitments.
Reid guided the Pikes to an impressive away win on Tuesday when they beat Lincoln Moorlands Railway 6-0 following a 1-1 draw with Athersley Recreation last weekend.
Assistant-manager Steve Brown was pleased with the weekend’s result and said: “It was a good game – we played very well and got a good clean sheet.”
The Pikes are currently tenth in the table after five games.
