Scott McNiven, manager of Skrill Premier strugglers Hyde FC gives his thoughts on the Tigers current situation and their….
….chances of earning some silverware this season.
The last few weeks at Hyde FC have been highly eventful. After the Tigers secured their elusive first league win of the season at Welling United, the club suffered two successive home defeats.
Despite these recent set-backs, and recurring injuries which have ravaged the first-team squad, McNiven was positive about how Hyde can return to winning ways: “Hopefully, the away performances of late have been good. The last few games have been infested by injuries and hopefully we can continue where we left at Welling and keep going forward.”
As it currently stands Hyde are still in both the Manchester Premier Cup and the Cheshire Senior Cup.
It has been several years since the Tigers clinched silverware in either tournament and any success would be a huge bonus to the season for the club.
McNiven explained his aims and aspirations for these competitions: “It would definitely be great to win these cups. We want to win every game this year that we play and if we get a few trophies that would be great.
“The league is always the priority, how we’ve done so far has not been so good but any sort of joy we can bring the fans the better.”
Hyde travel to Runcorn Linnets tonight and then host Lincoln City on Saturday, followed by a visit to relegation-threatened Tamworth in another tough Skrill Premier match, but considering the Tigers have picked up four out of a possible six points recently on the road, there could well be a surprise for the travelling faithful on that Tuesday night.
