Herne Bay manager Simon Halsey targets points haul from local rivals to boost top-half charge
Simon Halsey has set his team
a points target from their tough run of fixtures against Kent
rivals which he hopes will inspire them to a top 10
After Wednesday night’s
2-0 home defeat against play-off chasing Ramsgate, Bay boss
Halsey has his sights on taking 10 points from the four games
leading up to and including the derby with Whitstable on Easter
Despite having to visit
Ramsgate, promotion-chasing Hythe at home next Wednesday (27th) and
bottom-half rivals Corinthian Casuals at Winch’s Field on Saturday,
Halsey (pictured) wants to secure enough points to close on a
top 10 finish in Ryman League, Division 1 South.
After Saturday’s wash-out at
Walton & Hersham, Bay sit 15th but have played fewer games than
anyone else in the division.
Halsey said: "The way the
season’s gone, we have got four or five games in hand on some of
the teams above and around us and 10th to 12th is still in our
"It’s going to be a good end
to the season - 12 games in six weeks and we can’t wait to get
started. Bring it on.
"I’ve the set the boys the
10-point target from this next run. It won’t be easy but I don’t
care how we get them, as long as we get at least 10."
Last time out, Bay beat
promotion-chasing Crawley Down 4-3 at Winch’s Field and Halsey
admitted: "We are disappointed we didn’t get to play on Saturday.
After you get a good result and performance like that, you want to
keep the momentum going but it wasn’t to be."
