FOOTBALL: Devizes boss Webster makes case for the defence
12:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
DEVIZES Town joint-boss Justin Webster thinks that his side’s new-found defensive solidity could provide the perfect foundation for a successful campaign in the Toolstation League First Division this season.
The Nursteed Road management have been buoyed by their side’s positive start to the new campaign, which saw them notch up back-to-back victories over Ashton & Backwell United and Welton Rovers this week.
“We won the game and kept a clean sheet on Saturday, which is something that we didn’t even manage to do last season,” said Webster.
“In our first game, our centre-half, Gareth Davies, was man of the match and in Tuesday’s game at Welton, it was our sweeper, Kris Beasley.
“We’ve got a side that’s always going to score goals this season and if we can carry on keeping it tight at the back, we should do well.
“It’s been a great start and there’s a great team spirit amongst the lads already – they were well up for a few beers on Saturday.”
