NEW PICS’ boss, Wayne Thomas, is looking forward to seeing his side in action as we kick off our pre-season programme of matches at Stratford Town on Saturday (kick-off 3.00pm).

“It’s a case of so far, so good,” he said. “It’s a long season so we have been looking to progress the work gradually and build up the lads’ fitness and physicality.

“They have worked extremely hard and are taking on board what we are telling them; we’ve got some good players here and I’m looking forward to seeing them in an 11v11 situation at the weekend, particularly the trialists.

“It’s all about making progress and being ready for when the season gets underway on August 12th.

“I’m happy with the pre-season schedule that sits before us. They are all competitive games against teams in and around us, so it will be a good gauge as to where we’re at.”

Thomas has called for the local community to show their support for the club.

“I really want to see local people come out and get behind the club. Whether they’ve been along to Dales Lane before or not, we want to reach out into the local community and give people something to cheer about and take pride in.”

After Saturday’s game, we head to Belper Town on Tuesday evening.
