Folkestone Invicta manager Neil Cugley says financial problems not to blame for poor form
Neil Cugley says Folkestone
Invicta’s slide down the Ryman League Division 1 table must not be
blamed on the club’s continued off the field financial
Invicta face struggling Three
Bridges at Cheriton Road on Saturday – their first home game for
more than a month – looking to end a run of eight league games
without a win and boss Cugley says he more concerned about the
club’s league position than the on-going cash woes.
Invicta headed the table a
few weeks ago but have now slipped to 16th, only three points above
newly-promoted Sussex County League champions Bridges with only a
dozen points separating the clubs second and bottom
Cugley (pictured) said: "We
have just got to get on with it and can’t use what’s happening off
the field as an excuse.
"A couple of players have
taken pay cuts and we have lost three players but seven of the
squad this weekend who helped win us promotion three years ago are
still at the club."
Three Bridges arrive at
Cheriton Road on the back of a 3-2 win over Whitstable last week,
which proved the last game of Oystermen boss Justin Luchford’s 12
months in charge at Belmont. The former Folkestone player was
sacked on Tuesday night.
For the visit of Three Bridges Phil Stevenson is
struggling with a tight hamstring, while Josh Burchell is also in
contention to start.
