Clark clocking up the miles ahead of new season

July 16, 2018

King’s Lynn Town boss Simon Clark has already started doing his homework on his side’s Southern League Central rivals.
The new season gets underway in less than a month and Clark and his coaching staff have been clocking up the miles in a bid to give themselves a head start for the beginning of the 2018/19 campaign.
Lynn’s chief and his staff have already watched the likes of Kettering, Coalville, Barwell, Rushall Olympic and Tamworth in action over the summer and further trips are planned over the close-season break.
Clark, who is leaving no stone unturned in his preparations, said: “Watching the opposition, even this early, gives us ideas and a picture of what we might face in the month’s ahead.
“Yes I know that every side might change shape between now and the beginning of the season but it can give you a feel for the opposing managers and the opposition.
“It gives us an idea about individual players, how teams set up and the pattern of football that they could play.
“If a team have a strong DNA and play a certain way we will know how to negate their strengths and emphasise our own play on their weaknesses.”
On Saturday, a busy Clark, who will take in two more matches this week, watched Coalville beat a young Notts County XI 4-1 before observing the Rushall Olympic against Barwell clash later in the day.
It came less than 24 hours after Lynn continued their own groundwork with a 4-1 victory over Mildenhall Town on Friday night.
