PLAYER-BOSS Aaron Morris was satisfied with Tenbury United’s Herefordshire League debut but has warned his players against complacency.
A new-look United were locked at 4-4 with 20 minutes remaining before overpowering Kingstone in the final 20 minutes of their Division One bow at Palmer’s Meadow.
Morris handed league debuts to six United players and said Dan Ridley, Ashley Giles and Tom Farr all shone.
“It’s three points on the board and we have to take every game as it comes,” said Morris, who scored twice in Saturday’s goal-glut.
“We need to be up for every game and I have told the team that we cannot afford to be complacent.
“We know very little about anyone in our division apart from Brimfield and Woofferton so we have to expect the unexpected.”
United are without a match this Saturday and Morris said he might watch Tenbury Town’s HFA Burghill Cup tie at Brimfield.
Morris’ brother, Ryan Morris, and Kurt Pardoe each scored twice for United in last weekend’s thriller while George Pearson and Ian Patterson were on target.
United raced into an early 2-0 lead and were then 3-1 ahead before visiting Kingstone drew level at 3-3.
United edged 4-3 in front but the battling visitors hauled themselves into the match at 4-4. However, Tenbury’s fitness levels showed in the final stages and they took full advantage to score four goals.
“Kurt Pardoe played very well and was in need of goals and he got some which he fully deserved,” said Morris.
“Dale Withers played well in midfield and was full of running - and it was a good allround performance.”
It is United’s first season in Herefordshire football since leaving the West Midlands League at the end of last term.
“It was definitely the right thing for us to go into the Herefordshire League,” admitted Morris, who was in sole charge of United’s side at the weekend.
“Nicky Stocker was on holiday, so I had to look after the team and Matt Kurkus is having a bit of time off.”
He added:“Hopefully, we can have a good season, win games and get promotion.”
