Steve Barfoot pleased to see team get back to winning ways
Romford & Gidea Park first-team manager Steve Barfoot is hopeful that his side can handle the problems Holt could cause them this weekend at Bridge Road.
Park make the long trip to Norfolk off the back of a 20-12 success against London Two North East’s bottom club Basildon.
Although they made hard work of that victory, it has added to the confidence in the Crow Lane group and they will head to Holt looking for more success.
“I think we will have to make a couple of changes to the starting team, but it will basically be similar to what faced Basildon last weekend,” said Barfoot.
“I can’t remember if we have ever played Holt before, but it should be a nice trip and we will see what happens.
“We’ll take it to them. I have heard they are quite a forward orientated side, so we will have to deal with that.”
Jack MacVeigh scored a superb opening try at Crow Lane against Basildon on Saturday and Paul Bradley added a brace, with a successful conversion and penalty late on from MacVeigh ensuring Park were victorious and the visitors left empty-handed.
Barfoot added: “We dogged it out and that was the main thing.
“We made hard work of it and that seems to be the Romford way at the moment. We gave away too many penalties in their 22, otherwise the scoreline would have been a lot better for us.”
