rod v whitehawkBlues boss Rod Stringer has thanked the club’s fans for their patience during a difficult spell, and hopes that Saturday’s 3-1 home win against Concord Rangers was a welcome Christmas present for them.

“It’s a fantastic result for us, and it’s great for the supporters – that one was for them” said Strigner.

“They know where we are as a club and that things are tough, so that was a nice little present for them.

“We’ve got a tough run of games coming up, and I hope they’ll get behind the lads. There was only 325 there but the Saturday before Christmas is always a bad day for crowds. But for the people who were there, I’m really pleased they saw a win.

“They’ve stuck with us through thick and thin, and at no time have I felt under pressure from the fans to get results. I really appreciate that. I’ve been here three years now, and the fans have been great. Unfortunately I couldn’t wrap the present up, but I hope everyone enjoyed it, I thought it was an entertaining game and we deserved the win. Hopefully it will give us some confidence as we go into the Boreham Wood and Havant games.”

HSP BSFC Team PicStringer also revealed that he is looking to add to his backroom staff following departures of Colin Reid and Paul Hilton

“Johnny Herd’s been helping out in training alongside Fenny” he said. “He works for Cambridge United and the lads have enjoyed him mixing things up a little bit. But ideally I need another voice in the dugout and I’m hoping to sort something out sooner rather than later.”

Blues return to action on Boxing Day with a trip to Vanarama South leaders Boreham Wood before hosting play-off contenders Havant & Waterlooville on Sunday. Both games kick off at 3pm, as does the New Year’s Day return against Wood at the ProKit UK Stadium.
