Moors Academy welcome the visit of GNP tomorrow in what is their final game of the season.

Unfortunately, after last week’s draw with Knowle, it is no longer a final day shootout for second spot but Sam’s men are determined to end on a high.

“Of course the lads were deflated after last week’s result, it is only natural,” said Sam. “But we are not a team to dwell on the negatives and the lads have trained hard this week.

“I didn’t need to remind them of the missed opportunity, everyone is disappointed but we must remain positive about the season we have had.

“Fourth is still a very good achievement for this group of lads and I am proud of what we have achieved.”

Although GNP may have sealed second, Sam does not expect them to take their foot off the pedal and knows they will be desperate for the win.

‘Make no mistake, they will want to beat us and I expect a really tough and competitive match-up,” he said.

“The last time we played them, they were an incredibly physical side and I believe it will be no different tomorrow afternoon.

“They were very good from set pieces, in fact, their winner came from a corner and we are well aware of the danger they pose in the air.

“We have prepared well this week. We hope that the work we have done in training, helps us cope better with GNP’s aerial threat.”

Despite having little to play for in terms of league position, Moors are not about to throw in the towel and are out to prove they are just as good as their opponents.

“Congratulations to GNP on finishing second but we want to show them why we pushed them all the way,” said Sam.

“We are going for the three points, there is no worry about that and I will be looking for a performance from our boys.

“We are not about to roll over and die, we are 100% up for this game and we are set on beating GNP tomorrow.”
