Whitstable Town boss Nicky Southall set to ring the changes for visit of Walton and Hersham
Whitstable manager Nicky
Southall is ringing the changes at The Belmont as he seeks to put
his stamp on the club.
Southall (pictured) oversaw
an encouraging draw at Ryman League Division 1 South
promotion-chasers Crawley Down in his first game and wants a first
win when Walton & Hersham visit on Saturday.
The Belmont will have a
slightly different feel as the Oystermen will be running out of the
current away dressing room, at Southall’s request.
He said: "We have changed
things around a bit. Hopefully, we have left the bad old days and
bad memories in the old dressing room. It will be a fresh
"Hopefully it will stimulate
things a little bit. I am a great believer in sports psychology,
Sam Allardyce was a big fan of it when I was at Bolton and I was
one of his first proteges."
Southall has also switched
the dugouts and plans to have the players warm-up in the other half
of the pitch and will swap the end they attack in the first half if
they win the toss.
He added: "All these things
have not done us much good so far, so what’s the harm in trying to
change it around a bit?"
Town are awaiting
international clearance for ex-Gillingham youth left-back James
Brown, who has been playing in Spain.
