Marine AFC v Workington AFC – Fans Q&A

Next up on TCW fans Q&A is Paul Armstrong from Workington AFC.

TCW: We’re so used to seeing Workington up the top of the table but this season you’re currently 21st. What’s been different this season?

Paul: We started the season with five regular first teams players out with long term injuries. The consequences of this was a forced rebuilding exercise that clearly didn’t work as well as we would have hoped. Since then we have been playing catch-up and have struggled to be consistent.

TCW: You currently have 3 games in hand over some sides around you. Are you confident you can pull yourselves out of the relegation zone?

Paul: After a run of three victories things were looking more positive but this was followed  by two defeats and this blunted some of the optimism. Reds have been consistently inconsistent but with eight home games remaining, if we can build some momentum at Borough Park we could pull ourselves out of the drop zone.

TCW: Who’s your player to watch?

Paul: Scouting for your manager? Our central midfield duo have given us a glimmer of hope.

TCW: What side has impressed you the most this season?

Paul: There has been no stand-out team for me this season, more our frailties costing us dear. Warrington (away) probably put in the best performance against us, we struggled against the pace of  Mackreth who was a threat throughout the match.

TCW: I’ve visited Borough Park before and enjoyed my visits but it’s been announced you’re looking to move into a brand new stadium. What will you miss most about it?

Paul: The thing I’ll miss most is the horizontal rain blowing in off the Solway in mid winter – no wait, we will, still have that! There will be all the past memories, triumph and despair, but we will hopefully have many new memories to come, hopefully more triumph than despair, in our new home.

TCW: And finally what’s your prediction for Saturday?

Paul: I will be happy if we have a point in the bag as we leave Crosby.
