Ray wants to turn cup heroics into points
FC CLACTON boss Ray Turner is urging his players to translate their cup heroics into Thurlow Nunn League points.
The Seasiders have had a week of contrasts, starting with a sub-standard performance in Saturday’s 4-1 premier division defeat at home to Newmarket Town.
However, they responded with a hugely-improved display in Tuesday’s Essex Senior Cup second-round tie at home to neighbours Brightlingsea Regent.
The visitors won 4-1 on penalties, after the contest finished 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes.
Turner was more buoyed by his side’s performance than disappointed with the unfortunate result. And now he wants his players – who recently battled their way into the FA Cup second qualifying round – to replicate their spirited display in Saturday’s next league game, at CRC.
“We need to take performances like that into the league,” he said.
“We need to concentrate and work just as hard, to make sure we get some points on the board."
