JOINT Tenbury United boss Aaron Morris has warned there might be a hastily arranged training session ahead of his side’s Herefordshire League Division One clash at home to Ledbury Town Reserves on Saturday.

It is six weeks since the team were last in action and Morris is hoping for a good start to the New Year as they gear up for an important game with league leader Ross Juniors at the end of January.

“We want to have a good start to 2020 and win the next three games,” he explained. “We had been doing well but then lost against Ross Juniors which was disappointing. Because of the weather we’ve not managed to play since then so I might get a message out to see if we can get the players in ahead of Saturday’s match.”

And Morris is particularly looking forward to the Ledbury match at Palmers Meadow after he kick-starts his injury-ravaged season - his latest set-back coming in that 3-1 defeat against Ross.

“I’ve only managed to play four games this season so I’m looking forward to getting out there again,” he explained. “I had a knee injury in pre-season which was a little worse than I thought and then I picked up a hamstring injury.

“I came back for the Ross game because it was such an important match but that was probably a week too soon and it went again after 40 minutes so I’ve given it six weeks this time.”

Elsewhere in the division, Tenbury Town make the trip to Hinton Reserves on Saturday hoping for a repeat of the last time the sides met in September.

On that occasion, Town stormed to an 8-2 win with Alex Bright bagging a hat-trick and Callum Gittens and Declan Bright scoring two goals apiece.

Hinton have picked up since then though and three league wins on the bounce have lifted them up to third, two points behind leaders Ross and level on points with Tenbury United.

Like their Tenbury neighbours, Town have also been out of action for a while with their last match being the 3-2 defeat of Leominster Town at the start of December.
