Saints ready to excite

New players - New Management team - New Outlook

Manager Marc Abbott has given St Neots Town the licence to excite this season. Saints go into Southern League Division One Central battle today (Saturday) with a trip to another relegated side, Bedworth United.

Abbott has overseen a major revamp after Saints suffered the drop from the Premier Division Central last term. The arrival of defender Mikkel Fosu on loan from Peterborough United this week has taken the number of new arrivals during the summer to 11. And while the Saints boss has opted against going public with specific targets for the 2019/20 campaign - his first full season at the helm - he has promised that his players will entertain.

"We have set our goals in-house," said Abbott. "We want to be as competitive as possible. "We know there will be many challenges along the way, but we are confident we have a young and hungry group of players ready to face them.

"There has been a big revamp of the squad and it's one myself and my management team are very happy with. "The players have brought into everything that has been asked of them during pre-season when we have seen plenty of encouraging flashes. "We feel we can put wins on the board and we hope the style of play we've implemented will be exciting for the fans.

"Sometimes we will need to be patient and resilient to make ourselves harder to beat, but we want to use our attacking threat to be an entertaining team. We want to give our talented young players the freedom to play as much as possible.
