(From Halifax Courier) For Halifax boss Jamie Fullarton, the biggest reason for Town’s terrific start to the season can be summed up in one word: players.

The Shaymen go into Saturday’s clash with fellow high-flyers Leyton Orient just two points off top-spot having gained 17 points from a possible 27 so far. Town have only lost twice in their first nine games, while only Wrexham have a better defensive record in the National League.

When asked how has the start been achieved, Fullarton said: “Players. Players who are responsive, who take responsibility, who have a resilience and a willingness to listen, learn and believe and trust.

“There’s loads of words and phrases there that can be classed as buzzwords, but ultimately, people believe what they see. Therefore, when you say as a coach ‘if you do this, and this is why’ and they get success and results individually and collectively, then you get buy-in, along with the types of players we have that go to the well every time they play.

“With that, you have a real genuine opportunity to win games. And when you go into every game feeling you can win, including Tuesday night, then you put yourself into a real good position to win the game.

“I think the performance and attitude throughout showed that belief and confidence that we can win the game.”
