Captain's Thoughts

1 year ago By Niall Owens

We catch up with captain Jack McKay who gave us his thoughts ahead of the 1874 Northwich clash

McKay has been a mainstay in Steve Lloyd's First XI this season, featuring 34 times for the Villagers and explained to us how important this Derby is:

"The game on Saturday is a big game for all of the club. There are a number of factors which make it a big however the fact that it's a local derby and the support that Northwich 1874 have make the game massive for us and we are looking forward to the game full of confidence."

McKay is also one of a number of players who has featured for both teams and is keen to put on a good showing against his former club: "It's always good playing against old clubs as any player will tell you however it does make the game a big one."

He added: "A few of the lads have previously played for 1874 so I know they will be right up for the challenge as will all of the lads!"

Jack also offered his thoughts on the morale in the squad after last weekend's defeats to West Didsbury & Chorlton: "Tmorale in the camp is still very strong. Ithink that a key aspect of this team is that morale is always high and everyone is always looking to better the previous performance."

He added: "We have a very strong side now and I feel we are more than capable of getting as many wins as possible, hopefully starting with Saturday. Last week was just a blip and will be put right!"

Jack will be leading the Villagers out on Saturday at 3pm get down and show your support!
