FOOTBALL: Wallbridge ready for Railwaymen baptism
12:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Non League
New Didcot Town boss Andy Wallbridge is keen to prove himself as he takes charge of his first Division 1 South & West match tomorrow.
Wallbridge was appointed in May and admitted he can’t wait to test his managerial skills at a higher level, starting at Shortwood United tomorrow.
He said: “I definitely feel I’ve got something to prove – not to Wantage, or even to Didcot, but to myself. “It is more or less a new squad and they want to prove themselves as well.
“I played at this level and it was always my ambition to play at the highest level. It’s no different now, I want to manage at the highest level I can.
“It’s not going to happen overnight, but the management team always knew it was going to be a tough test and we’re all up for it.”
IN: J McMahon, S Parish, J Parish, G Tucker, S Cattell, J Cottrell (all Wantage), J Ferreira, A Morris (both Oxford City Nomads), N Thorne (Ardley Utd), R Denton (Abingdon Tn), K Beesley (Oxford Utd).
Out: M Williams, E Osborne-Ricketts (both N Leigh), S Elkins (Wantage), A Stanley (ret’d), J Bernasconi, L Noble (both Abingdon Utd), M Janes (Abingdon Tn), R Allaway (Thatcham), R Tappin (Milton Utd).
