Liversedge manager Jonathan Rimmington admits his side have been pushed to their limits but remains confident the team can stay in the NCEL Premier Division.
For Sedge they remain in the bottom three, despite beating Nostell Miners Welfare 3-1, due to results going elsewhere.
Liversedge made the news earlier this year, due to seeing so many home games postponed with the weather causing havoc with the schedule, it resulted in the side playing their first home game of 2016 on March 8th and before that their last game was on 31st October, Rimmington said the schedule has been tough on his side:
“We’ve played 13 games in five weeks, we’re having to travel here there and everywhere, there are no easy games in this league you look at other people’s results, for some games like Brigg Town losing to Handsworth, no one would see that happening, anyone can beat anyone.
The club gained a grant, which has helped work be carried out, Rimmington says it has been a relief: “The pitch is getting better, it is not 100 per cent yet, we got a £5k grant and the improvement to the pitch is working.”
Now with only four games to go, Liversedge know they still have to gain victories to ensure safety in the NCEL Premier Division, Rimmington says it means so much to the club, if they can keep their status in the division: “This is a fantastic and very proud club, there are only three or four people who work in the club, all we can do is win our games and that is what we have to do.
“I won’t take anything for granted, the big thing for us is to stay up that is the aim, if we had this team four months ago we would be okay now, I’m learning, it’s the first time I’ve managed at this level, I just hope we stay, it will be a nightmare for us all if we go down.”
