Whitehawk’s latest new manager Andy Woodman says every player will start with a clean slate as he tries to turn their season around.
Woodman wants to prove that goalkeepers can make good bosses after stepping in at the Enclosed Ground – he becomes the Hawks sixth manager in a year.
It wasn’t the start he wanted at the weekend as his new charges lost at Dartford. The 3-1 loss leaves the team third from bottom of the Vanarama National League South but he knows it’s not results against the top sides which will define things.
Woodman, the ex-Brentford and Northampton goalie, says things must get better if they are to stay up.
They play Eastbourne Borough tonight and the manager says three points would be “massive for everyone”.
The 45-year-old will meet the club’s home fans for the first this evening and he said: “It’s a fresh start for the players, it’s a clean slate.
“We’ve got an important few weeks in front of us and we need to be pulling in the same direction.
“There are places up for grabs but we’ve got so much to play for. We have massive games ahead of us and myself and assistant Jimmy Dack will be looking at things closely.
“They will be given a chance to prove themselves but we need results and quickly.”
After tonight’s game with Eastbourne, the Hawks play Ebbsfleet on Saturday.
