THERE was plenty for boss John Pemberton to be happy about in the wake of the win over Farsley Celtic, writes Elliot Ball.
The gaffer was impressed by his side’s fight in the 2-0 win, and discussed new signing Ashley Hemmings, as well as the new owners and what it means for the club.
Pemberton was delighted with the result, saying shortly after the final whistle: “I thought we played a really good team, a very strong team.
“I watched them on Saturday and they’re very good at what they do so we knew we had a battle on our hands.
“I thought we started well, which gave us a little boost and then the goals came at a good time.
“Obviously, we haven’t played for three weeks which has been hard but one or two of them were carrying knocks, so it’s given them chance to recover.
“It was nice to have the break, because when we got the bodies back in we worked really hard in the three weeks we’ve had off, really hard.
“The owners said this is a new start and we want it to be positive.” John Pemberton
Of the debut of his new acquisition, Pemberton added: “Everyone knows he’s a good player.
“When he came here with Altrincham, he was arguably their best player.”
Harriers confirmed a change of ownership over the course of the last week, and this news was well received in the management office.
“The new owners have been really supportive of what we’re trying to do,” the manager went on to say.
“It is going to be a bit of process, it’s not going to happen overnight but hopefully you can see where we’re trying to take the team.
“I’m really pleased it is done and I’m pleased for everyone at the club, but mostly just pleased for the supporters.
“The owners said this is a new start and we want it to be positive.
“Today was a big positive; I thought the fans were great and they really got behind us and it’s what we want.”
Harriers are next in action this coming Saturday (26th) with King’s Lynn Town set to visit Aggborough.
