Garner: We Want A Close Bond With The Fans

Captain Scott Garner is looking for a close bond with the fans as the season takes shape and he has been impressed by the support shown so far. 

Following Monday’s draw with Altrincham Tom Feaheny caught up with the skipper who said “The five game unbeaten run is a positive, it would be nice to turn some of those draws into wins, no team is coming and beating us though. I think we are growing as a group and have seen everything the league has to offer.”

“We have got so much in the dressing room, we know the league is up for grabs and we just need to click into gear, start from the first whistle and not go behind. If we start games how we finish them I think we are going to roll a few teams over, we are playing some nice stuff now too, we’re close to clicking now.”

Talking of the training regime under the new Management Team Garner said “The coaching staff train us down to the tee with every little detail and I think you are starting to see that on the pitch. Now we’re passing the ball through the lines, playing out from the keeper and playing down the sides, I think it is looking good from where I am standing.”

“I know it is going to click into gear soon and someone is in for a hammering I think and hopefully we keep winning games from then.”

Asked of the side’s never say die attitude Scott insisted “No one is giving in in there, we don’t want to let each other down. Everyone is willing to run and work hard for each other, you look at the games it has paid out late on.”

“It was a great strike, that is the ability he has got, he has a great range of passing and plays in midfield quite often” replied Garner when asked about Andy Halls’ strike on Monday.

Speaking of the support at Altrincham Scott was keen to thank the travelling fans for their support “We want to get a close bond with the fans, we appreciate them coming it is great to hear them cheering us on and celebrating the goal. I like it when the team and fans are close knit and there’s a lot of interaction between the two.”

“We will always appreciate the fans for coming down and go over and applaud them for coming over win, lose or draw.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s visit of Chester, who include former Lions loanee Anthony Dudley in their squad, the captain said “I think we have seen what is to offer in this league, I think we have more than enough to at least have a challenge at the right end. We just need to start getting points on the board three at a time as soon as possible.”

“If we go and beat Chester now it will turn this point into a very good one, there’s tough places to go in this league so if we go away and get points and win our home games it is a good recipe and that is what we are looking to do. “
