Henman has a wealth of options
06:46 04 January 2014
Dereham Town will be looking to start 2014 with a win when Brentwood travel to Aldiss Park after the Magpies’ New Year’s Day trip to Sudbury was postponed.
Town boss Matt Henman is delighted to be going into today’s game with a fully fit squad, something which so far this season has proved a rare luxury.
Henman said: “It’s a welcome selection headache for me as a manager and it’s now a case of making the right choices.
“While it’s great to have options as a manager, you have to keep everyone happy and use your whole squad to your advantage. Something I think you have to do, and something we do very well here at Dereham, is rotation within the squad.
“All our players here have bought into the way we work and they know some games they will on the bench but they all impress when given the chance. We have no super-stars and have a really healthy and happy squad which is key to our success. Now we have options, it’s my job to decide what team, style of play and formation best suit our opponents and that’s something we will decide on the day based on the opposition, the pitch and the conditions.”
nThe Anglian Combination game between Cromer Town and Loddon United will be subject to a 9am pitch inspection. If the game is postponed there will be someone at Cabbell Park from 2pm to 3.30pm to give people the opportunity to buy tickets for the Senior Cup game against Norwich City Under-21s, on Tuesday January 14, at the reduced price of £3.
