Five-game losing streak? Promotion hopes evaporating? Holbeach United returned to winning ways smashing Harrowby United NINE-nil after a team-bonding night out at the greyhound racing!

When Holbeach’s match was postponed a fortnight ago, Boss Seb Hayes rounded up his men for a morale boosting evening at the dogs – a week later they were celebrating three points in style.

The Tigers were purring on Saturday as Josh Ford and Spencer Tinkler both bagged hat-tricks to compound a thoroughly miserable afternoon for hapless, second-from-bottom Harrowby, who have now conceded 103 goals this season.

It was joy for Hayes, though, as his side got back on track in the ChromaSport United Counties Premier Division.

“The lads have been training really well recently and it all came back together on Saturday,” explained an elated Hayes.

“The results haven’t been good recently but we spoke to the players and as a team which has helped.

“The night out was a good way of sticking together and getting through this. It’s important that everyone is all in and the players showed that. I’m really pleased with the belief and honesty they’ve displayed.

“The squad has changed a lot in the last couple of weeks so it was a case of getting used to that and being patient.

“I hope this is the boost we needed to push us on now.”
