Bedlington Terriers boss Innes sets high standards for his team

With Gary Innes winning his first game in charge as Bedlington Terriers manager, it has set the standards high for the rest of the season.

Innes expressed his belief in wanting the Terriers to become a more organised side and believes that confidence is the key to continuing the momentum into the next few games.

He said: “Bedlington has a great history, but a club is only as good as their fan base, so it is up to me to keep the standards high.

“I would like to think we will be a tighter unit. I like to be organised and that’s the way I want us to play, nice and creative in attack and solid at the back.

“Confidence, winning and the feeling the lads had at the end of the game will hopefully continue this early momentum.”

He now faces several difficult challenges in the forthcoming weeks, with trips to Newcastle Benfield and Consett, plus home games against league leaders West Auckland Town and high-flying Marske United.

Innes added: “The biggest test I have overcome is becoming a dad, and the ethics behind that is to have compassion and to take pride in what you do, this is exactly the knowledge I will be using in the job.”
