Benterman hails Town supporters
HALSTEAD Town boss Mark Benterman has praised the fans who turned out in force for Saturday’s 4-2 victory at home to Great Yarmouth.
An impressive 203 supporters were at Rosemary Lane to witness the Thurlow Nunn League victory (see page 31).
That figure was significantly more than at any other match in division one and Benterman said: “Our supporters have been magnificent.
“We had more than 100 people watching our pre-season friendlies and even when we’re away we take 50 or 60 people.
“It’s fantastic that the public and the town are getting behind us and buying into what we’re trying to do.
“It also shows you how big this club could be – and how much potential there is – if we’re successful.”
