CHRIS HARDY: Pair move on with our best wishes

Blue Review with Town boss Chris Hardy

Two members of our squad departed this week in Cameron Park and Curtis Round.

In Curtis’ situation, his work commitments were conflicting with his footballing commitments and something had to give.

He’s going to be putting more time into his career as he’s training to become a teacher and we wish him all the best.

It’s a different kettle of fish with Cameron and I just felt for various reasons he’d be better off elsewhere.

I think he fell out of favour and for his own development and career it’s best that he moves on.

We are always looking for ways to improve our squad and we’ll be continuing to do so. I’m hopeful of bringing one or two lads in before the weekend.

We’ve got an important FA Trophy game against Workington at home on Saturday, and it’s no secret that the FA cup competitions offer great financial rewards, so it would be nice for all involved with the club to go on a nice run and boost the coffers.

At the start of the season we aimed for a mid-table finish and a run in the cups, and we’re surpassing that at the moment.

Our aims to go on a cup run don’t change though and we’ll beat Workington on Saturday and progress in the Trophy.

We picked up a very pleasing 2-1 win on the road at Barwell on Saturday.

Barwell is, and always will be a tough place to go for a number of reasons.

They’re a physical, competitive side, the pitch isn’t overly suitable to the way we try to play the game.

It was also pleasing that we managed to go to such a difficult place without Dale Hopson and get the win.

We got our noses in front and managed to hold out for a big three points.

Our system really suits the guys at the club.

It’s not one I’ve operated with for the past few years, but you have to look at the strengths you have and this system suits us.
