Lewis Chambers backed by Newark Town's joint-manager to go on a goal-scoring run

By Connor Thompson

Newark Town’s joint-manager says match-winner Lewis Chambers can go on an unstoppable goal-scoring run after finding the back of the net against AFC Bentley.

The Blues won 1-0 in South Yorkshire as they continued their 100% start to the Central Midlands League North Division, and Luke Parsons believes Chambers’ goal will be the first of many.

“We matched them for work rate, but we had the individuals that could just win a game and Lewis showed he is one of those who can do that,” said Parsons.

“He leads our line and in previous games he has been frustrated at times because he hasn’t got his goal, but his all round play has been phenomenal.

“I said to him last week, once you score one, you won’t be stopped, and he agreed with me.

“He’s got that belief in himself to do that, and especially after getting the match-winner, he will be full of confidence going into Saturday.

“Being a number nine, we are relying on him for goals and I have full belief he will deliver.”

Parsons said Town had to adapt their play to get the three points on Saturday, and explained the rough pitch made playing on the floor difficult.

“We are realists and we know there are some games where we will have to change the way we play, and Saturday was one of those,” he said.

“And, actually, that was one of the most pleasing things. The pitch was very bobbly and because of that we changed, but we came through it.”
