Stand-in boss Dick Creasey wants to end his three-game reign at Wisbech Town with another victory tonight.
The former Fenmen manager has overseen, helped by players Paul Cousins and Scott Johnson, a draw and a win since he stepped in to help the club following Steve Appleby’s resignation.
And with his full-time replacement expected to be announced this week, possibly at this evening’s home game with Boston Town, Creasey is aiming to finish on a high.
He said: “Boston is where I come from, I know a few of their lads as I’ve worked for the club, so I want to end with a win. But the main reason is I want Wisbech to record back-to-back victories.
“Hopefully when the new manager comes in things will look a bit better than what they did. I was asked to keep the ball rolling and help things to move along and that’s what I want to do by picking up three more points for Wisbech Town.”
Creasey will hand Leverington youngster Jack Thorpe a start in goal tonight with Tom Roberts sidelined thanks to the dislocated shoulder injury he picked up during Saturday’s 3-0 United Counties League Premier Division win at Harborough Town. ‘Loan’ striker Ewan Clarke will be missing after being recalled by King’s Lynn Town.
Creasey said: “It’s hard for me to get players in, as I’m temporary boss, so I’d like to thank Leverington for letting us use Jack for this evening’s match.”
