INSIDE VIEW - Richard Gregory's Bromsgrove Sporting pre-North Leigh column

Ben Tyler 25th Feb, 2019

New Bromsgrove Sporting skipper Richard Gregory writes for The Standard in his weekly column, providing his thoughts on last weekend’s vital win over Peterborough Sports, and looks ahead to hosting North Leigh this Saturday.

FIRST of all, as I’ll be taking over the weekly column from him, I would like to personally wish Jonah [Craig Jones] all the best in the future for a final time.

Over the last year since I joined Sporting, Jonah become a friend of mine.

He’s a man who is clearly a legend here at the club, with many qualities on and off pitch – a true gentleman – I wish him well going forward.

As I’m now the club captain, I can promise all the supporters at the Victoria Ground that I will give my all every time I put the shirt on, as I have done ever since I walked in here.

I’m hoping I’m only a week or two away from making a return to the pitch after my hamstring injury.

The rehab is going well and can’t wait to get back out there with the boys.

While I’m on the subject, I thought that every single player on Saturday was excellent, individually and collectively.

Everyone to a man put in a real solid performance, the substitutes who came on certainly played their part along with everyone else, so we are all really pleased as it was a fantastic result for us.

We are now in with a chance as we enter the final part of the season, and we have to make sure we take one game at a time and just keep doing our jobs by winning.

There will still be some twists and turns I’m sure, as it’s football, and we all know that anything can happen in this game – that’s why we all love it.

We host North Leigh this Saturday, who I noticed moved to the foot of the table this weekend.

After a great result on Saturday, it’s so important we don’t get ahead of ourselves as anything less than three points this weekend would just cancel out the win against Peterborough.

The gaffer and Andy [Mason] have already touched on this, so the boys must prepare as we normally do.

I’m sure with the excellent support we have cheering us on, we will get the win we need.

Up the Rouslers.
