Payton wants to end year on a high
1:00pm Thursday 9th May 2013 in Sport
BEWDLEY Town will be aiming to continue their rousing end to the West Midlands League Premier Division in their final two home matches.
The Ribbesford Meadow outfit are unbeaten in eight league and cup games as they look to take some positives from a campaign destroyed by the awful winter.
Town tackle Willenhall Town tonight (7.45pm ko) and then end the season against Bartley Green on Saturday (3pm ko).
With eighth place firmly sealed, joint manager Craig Payton wants some momentum for next season.
He said: “It has been a good end to the season considering all the problems we’ve had.
“We’ve been mixing and matching the team with under-21s players to keep them all fresh and it seems to have worked.”
Bewdley saw young guns Jonno Seekings and Josh Gaunt score on Tuesday night as they beat Wednesfield 2-1.
Town had drew 3-3 with Wellington Amateurs on Saturday, with Richard Costello, Liam Edwards and Simon Rudd scoring as they battled back from 3-2. Bewdley also defeated Shawbury United 2-0 last Thursday with Luke Towler and Dan Gittens on target.
Payton added: “The under-21s players have stepped up well and I can see three or four becoming regulars for us next season.
“The one positive to come out of our problems this season has been the chance to blood some of these younger guys.”
