Manager Ray is prepared to take a risk
MANAGER Ray Turner says he is prepared to take risks in terms of his team selections this season.
The FC Clacton boss admits he took a gamble in picking his line-up for Tuesday’s Thurlow Nunn League premier division victory against Stanway Rovers.
Centre-half Ally McInnes – man-of-the-match in Saturday’s FA Cup victory against Hullbridge Sports – was an unused substitute while Stewart McFarlane dropped to the bench in favour of Louie Newland.
“I took a huge gamble with my team selection, but I believe I now have a squad where I can change the personnel for different games,” said Turner.
“Last season the team picked itself.
“There was no competitive edge and that’s why we were where we were.
“This season it’s different.
“Players are being kept on their toes and that’s exactly what I want.
“Football’s cut-throat and I will be ruthless this season – as I proved on Tuesday."
