As the dust settles over last Saturday`s FA Cup exit at Bridgnorth Town, it`s time to look forward to this coming…
….Saturday`s home game against Frickley Athletic in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division and Rushall Olympic manager Neil Kitching at least has a little bit of good news to report.
There is a welcome return to Dales Lane for midfielder Josh Craddock, who has now patched up his differences with the boss and Ahmed Obeng returns from Ghana on Saturday.
Craddock left the club just a couple of weeks ago after a difference of opinion with Kitching but he now realizes that things might have been handled better and accepts that he was in the wrong. He returns to training tonight where the management will assess his fitness ahead of Saturday`s important home game with Frickley.
There is more good news for Kitching regarding Obeng. The exciting forward has missed the opening month of the season because of a family illness. His mother, who lives in Ghana, was taken seriously ill and Obeng flew over to be by her side. Thankfully she has improved quite considerably and is now out of hospital and Obeng flies back into the UK this Saturday and should be available for Tuesday night`s trip to Eastwood Town.
Whilst in Ghana, Obeng, has been keeping himself fit by training with a local club near to where his family live out there, and should be okay for Tuesday night.
On Monday and Tuesday the Pics` management staff took in a number of games between them as they seek to strengthen the squad and they have several irons in the fire.
They hope to conclude a couple of deals shortly, although there is no guarantee when they could happen.
