Fakenham boss wants to be pleasing on the eye

Fakenham Town manager Andy Cunnigham has hinted that Ghosts fans will be treated to be a style of football which is easier on the eye this season.

It has been a busy summer at Clipbush Park as the Scot prepares the Ghosts for life in the First Division North of the Eastern Counties second-tier.

But with seven new faces already committed to the club and midfielder Marry Franks pledging his future to the club on Wednesday night, Cunnigham is looking forward to a fresh start.

Cunningham said: "It has been a busy summer, but that's how we wanted it to be.

"We have retained all of last season’s squad that I wanted to keep and have added some really good options to the squad, which will allow us to get the ball down and play proper football this season.

"Danny Lloyd, Fraser Field, Daniel Hogston, Ryan Curtis, Luke Priestley, Harry Exley and Alby Matthews have all come into the club and I am really excited to see what they have to offer.

"During pre-season we have also had some of last year's Reserve team, which won promotion to senior football, step-up inclduing Callum Brain and Daniel Tuddenham and those guys will be like new signings for us going forward.

"Both the lads from the reserves and the guys who have stepped up from the reserves have gelled really well and there is a much better enviroment and togetherness than last season."

The Ghosts open their 2018/19 campaign tomorrow when Ipswich Wanderers visit Clipbush Park with Cunnigham stressing the importance of his side playing football the right way.

"We can't resort to long ball football, like we did at times last year.

"I have put together a squad which doesn't play that way, our strengths will be getting the ball down and playing the game how it should be played.

"I can't wait to see if all come together on Saturday."

Elsewhere tomorrow, Paul Hunt's Swaffham Town travel to newly-promoted Harleston Town after a busy summer of arrivals at Shoemakers Lane.

Downham travel to Felixstowe and Walton United Reserves, while King's Lynn Town Reserves will have to wait until Tuesday night before kicking-off their league programme.
