Showie delighted to be back home

Mark Shaw returned to the helm  The World's First Football Club at the weekend, ending the losing streak with a hard-earned 2-2 draw at Romulus, declaring "It's great to be back home. I cannot stress what an absolute pleasure it is to be back."

"At Romulus we were much better than last Tuesday at Leek, it was a marginal game, there were encouraging signs and I spoke to the lads about the performance. We were on top for the first 25 minutes but to go 2-1 down just before half-time, losing Gazza through the red card, and to grind it back into the game it shows they've engaged what I wanted them to do."

"It'll take a bit of time, we haven't got a pre-season to prepare for this and a summer to bring players in, but it will be hard and you have to give them credit."

"It was the same group of players that have started the season, and they've gone out there and given 100% for the Club."

"I do have a bit of an advantage by knowing quite a few of the players already, Algar, Turner, Colbear, Adams and Robson, and I've managed Joel Purkiss, Andrew Gascoigne and Matt Sykes before - and James Gregory is one who I didn't have last time who I want to nurture and get the most out of that talent."

Jinky is a very gifted young man, who could have won it for us in the end, but it was not to be."
"I also have an advantage that I know all about the Club, what it is all about, and it is a delightful Club to be at. I was desperately disappointed to lose my job last time, and it is great to be back, I just want to bring back the success it deserves."

Hopefully Mark will bring that much needed win at the Home of Football this evening, when Lincoln United are the visitors, kick off 7:45pm.

Good news and victory last night and the anticipated return (in new, not always perfect role) of Lee Cooksey in the win last night. Now press on and keep moving up the table.
