Benterman hoping fans make a racket
HALSTEAD Town plan to turn up the volume – and hope their noisy supporters spur them on to a precious victory.
The Humbugs are preparing for a top-of-the-table Thurlow Nunn League division show showdown at Whitton United.
Town are second, four points behind tomorrow’s hosts but with two games in hand.
And in order to give their players an added lift, the club have bought some airhorns to pass on to travelling fans. Boss Mark Benterman hopes the gesture gives his players an extra boost – and that both his squad and supporters have plenty to celebrate by the final whistle.
“We thought it would be a bit of fun,” he said.
“Our supporters have been excellent this season.
“They’re coming along in droves and are very excited and pleased with what they’re seeing.
“We believe around 40 are making the trip to Whitton.
“Giving them airhorns is just a little touch to really help them get behind our boys."
