After three league wins on the spin, we felt it was a good time to speak to the Manager about the last few games and the Christmas period ahead. Read what Adam had to say below…

 

The team is now showing some form after some new additions to the squad, what do each of the new signings bring?

Over the last month we have several changes to the squad which has seen some old faces return and some new ones brought in. The older faces have helped bring experience, camaraderie and love for the club back into the dressing room and the new faces have brought enthusiasm and a determination to improve at a time when this was also needed.

 

How important was it to bring back ex-Concord players Tony Stokes and Leon Gordon to the club?

At the time the dressing room was a quiet and lonely place so it was an area that I need to get improve. Both Stokesy and Gordo came straight back in and it was like they had never been away. Both made the dressing room louder, showed everyone the passion they have and slowly got helped us get things moving forward once again.

 

Have recent games shown that when Concord are on song they’re a match for any team in the division?

I am not surprised that we have started to hit form. We have good players and can give any team a good game on our day however for one reason or the other it just didn’t happen at the start of the season. Many of the games we lost by the odd goal and in truth a few of these games could have equally gone our way.  We lost to Maidenhead 1-0, Ebbsfleet 1-0, Dartford 2-1, Eastbourne 2-1, Wealdstone 1-0 so when you look at how these teams have started the season we didn’t disgrace ourselves.

 

Having opened up a 5 point gap on Welling how crucial is the game on the 17th?

The Welling game for me is huge. We want to put right the two losses that we have encountered to them already this year and we want to push ourselves higher up this league.  I want to go into the two local derby games over Christmas in the best possible form and beating Welling will enable us to do that. It will be a tough fixture as Jamie Day is now fully in charge but we will be a different team to that they experienced in the trophy and I am intrigued to see with everyone back how we perform.
