Bedworth United preview and managerial change for Reserves

November 23, 2018

The Linnets are back in home Southern Premier Central Division action on Saturday with bottom club Bedworth United visiting The Walks (3PM). 
Town will be bidding for their fourth consecutive league victory and could, if other results go their way, find themselves in the play off places for the first time this season come 5pm tomorrow evening.
Speaking ahead of the weekend Ian Culverhouse isn’t counting any chickens ahead of Bedworth’s visit.
"We have prepared just as we would do for any game, be it against a top, middle or bottom side and we are ready for what I expect to be a difficult game. 
"Yes Bedworth have had a difficult start but sometime they may well click into gear and go on a run. What we must do is ensure that it’s not against us. 
"We are currently on a good run which started before I arrived under Neil Fryatt and Rob Back and I'm delighted that we have continued on the same track. 
"However we are in no position as yet to begin back slapping and getting carried away, which I hasten to add we haven’t. 
"We are playing catch up at the moment and we will be for a while to come. As I said when I returned, there is a bagful of points to play for and many games to play. 
"We have to continue what we are doing at present and carry it on for as long as we can into December which will be a real test with a lot of games in such a short space of time."
Lynn’s main injury doubts concern Aaron Jones and captain Michael Clunan who both missed last weekend’s 3-1 win at Barwell.
Bedworth arrive still searching for their first league win of the season having endured a tough start to life in the Southern League. Their latest outing on Tuesday evening saw a home 4-1 reverse at the hands of Tamworth.       

The Linnets will now travel to Hitchin Town for a rearranged Southern Premier Central Division on Wednesday, December 12 (7.45pm).
The reserves travel to Lakenheath (1.30pm) for a Thurlow Nunn league fixture with a change at the helm. 
Neil Fryatt has been appointed manager with Adam Seal assisting and Paul Faulkner continuing as physio. 
Fryatt will continue in his role as youth team manager.
Speaking of the changes, which has seen Johnny Alflatt relieved of his duties at the club, Town’s director of football Rob Back said: "Firstly I must thank Johnny for all of his efforts over the past 18 months. It’s been a tough season of transition with many under-18 players stepping up into the reserves and under-16s playing for our A team. 
"Results have not beenwhat we are looking for at reserve level but development and stability is and bringing Neil into the role with all of his experience will redress the balance. 
"Neil, along with Dan and Jamie Buhlemann are doing a great job here at the club working with the exciting young prospects we have here. 
"We have forged a tremendous link with the Elite set up and I really think that some of these lads will go on to become first team players of the future. 
"In total, around 20 of our young lads have come from the Elite system which is a fantastic achievement."
