Harpenden Town 1 Brache Sparta 0

HARPENDEN Town are still looking for a new manager following Christian Garzarolli's departure last month but on the pitch things are going well.

Chris Gregory scored the only goal of the game late on to give Town a 1-0 win over Brache Sparte on Saturday to give his dad, and club chairman, Kelvin his fourth win in five games since taking over as caretaker boss.

"It's not going too bad at all," Gregory senior told the Herts Advertiser.

"Chris Gregory got the goal - he's doing it for his dad! It came in the last minute of the game and it was nice to get it because we'd been on top.

"It's a tough game against Kings Langley this weekend who are higher than us and it'll be a good test to see how far we've come."

Town included several youngsters who've graduated from the club's youth scheme in recent weeks and Gregory says that whoever takes over at the club will be expected to continue this tradition.

"There's a lot of youngsters in the team, we had two 16-year-olds and an 18-year-old in the team on Saturday," continued the caretaker manager.

"They've come through the youth set-up and it's important we find the right person.

"We want to keep the youngsters coming through - we don't want someone coming in and bringing in 20 players from outside the town.

"These kids started in the Colts at eight years old and it's great to see them come through and playing locally.
