Linnets set for Gosport take four!!

February 5, 2018

The Linnets will be hoping that it will be a case of fourth time lucky on Tuesday evening when they travel to Gosport in the Southern Premier Division (7:45 KO).


The initial way back in October fixture was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch with both the team and supporters well on their way to Hampshire. 


The other two rearranged dates have fell foul to a frozen pitch and an off the field boiler problem – leaving manager Ian Culverhouse with fingers crossed ahead of Tuesday evening.

“It will be nice to finally get down there and play the game’ said the boss, speaking to . 


“I have done three lots of preparation work already on the other games and they keep bringing in different players so it’s had to be done again, In all fairness it’s not looking too good for them but in some ways they may go out and play with more of a freedom than say, if they were challenging at the other end. 


“As I have said before when we played them back in August at ours I didn’t think they were a bad side but since then with all of the player movement and changes it’s more difficult to judge. 


“From our point of view it’s a trek for a Tuesday evening with some of the lads having to take time away from work to get down there and then others probably having a couple of hours in bed before being up for work Wednesday morning. 


“It’s not perfect but it is what it is and other teams have/ will have to do the same between now and April’.

Culverhouse also confirmed he was pleased with Saturday’s 5-0 success over Dunstable and admitted to being a little nervous ahead of the game.


“I was keen to stress to the lads about the importance of not taking your eye off things after last Tuesday, It would have been easy to turn up with the wrong attitude and struggle but great credit must go to the team because it was a professional and ruthless display with very little alarm for us. It keeps us in a good place and with a little break after Tuesday which I feel will do everyone good we will then be prepared for the final weeks of the season’.

Anyone planning to travel to Gosport are advised to keep in touch with all of the club’s media outlets before travelling as a wintry forecast is predicted over the next few days.
