Maids club captain Myke Parrott is not afraid to say the club can win the title next season.
Parrott, who missed the last few months of the season due to a broken elbow, is ‘excited’ for the arrival of new coach David Mobbs-Smith and is raring to finish top of the pile this time around.
“Yeah I’m really excited,” said Parrott.
“We are sad to lose him (Russell Bolton) but there’s an air of excitement with the new boss coming in. He will take a look at things from a neutral point of view with fresh opinions, some of which he has already communicated to us.
“He’s already sat down with a few of the boys and been at a few training sessions – sounds like we are going to be in for a tough summer getting fit.”
Mobbs-Smith has plenty of experience as a coach, with an impressive CV covering all levels of the game and Parrott is not afraid to say he believes they can win the league under the new boss.
“The boys are really keen to get going and see what Mobbsy (David Mobbs-Smith) brings to the party,” added Parrott.
“So now looking at it with a new coach coming in and hitting pre-season hard, we think we can win this league.
“I don’t know if Mobbsy is going to outwardly say that publicly, but I’m not afraid to come out and say it.
“It might put a target on our players back, but they are good enough to handle that.”
