Brushstrokes offer Old Boys a glossy finish

DESPITE the lengthy lockdown period, many of the regions non-league football clubs have used the time wisely, tidying up their facilities largely thanks to dedicated teams of supporters and volunteers.

It has been on different at ProKit UK Essex Olympian League outfit, Old Southendian, where the management and several of teh squad have given the Garon Park home changing room an impressive makeover.

“It was quite bland so we’ve spruced it up,” first-team boss, Connor Lane, told Yellow Sport.

“We are always looking for ways to improve and adapt. I believe the improvements to what was a zestless room will encourage even greater morale and a spirit amongst the club.

Lane was quick to prase though who had ‘mucked-in’ with the work, adding: “I am extremely grateful to Ollie Thursby, Dean Hazelton, Nick Henesy and not forgetting groundsman, Phil Burton – who was always available soon short notice – for giving up their time to help me with this small project.

“Most of the players and club committee are yet to see our handiwork. We are looking forward to the grand opening at our first home match of the season, whenever that might be.”
