Newark Town to host Harworth in Central Midlands League North Division match up


By Connor Thompson


Newark Town’s joint-manager said he isn’t dreaming of an unbeaten season, despite The Blues’ impressive start to the campaign.

Luke Parsons, who also plays at centre back for Town, said winning the title and going unbeaten would be something he would welcome with open arms, but isn’t a realistic ambition of the management team.

He said: “It would be nice, and it is something we would take, of course.

“But realistically, every team has an off day, as people saw with Man City at the weekend (who lost 3-2 to Norwich in a huge Premier League upset).

“It’s unrealistic when you have the good teams you do in this league.

“It would be a fantastic achievement of course, but it is not something were realistically aiming for.

“I don’t want to be too over confident.

“A big thing for us is after the Harworth game (which takes place tonight at the YMCA Sports Hub) we will have played second, third and fourth, and I think that will show a guideline of where we are and our ambition.”

Town are top of their division and have made a complete u-turn from this time last season, when they were at the other end of the table, battling for their first win.

“What’s pleasing is we are now taking the chances we were missing at the start of the season,” Parsons said.

“Defensively we are much more solid and we play as a unit now.”

Town's tie against Harworth kicks off at 7.45pm.
