Despite this Town have had a good pre season and have filled the gaps left with younger players. The club has also made changes to the management team, Dave Walton now being supported by Rich Jagger and Ross Cording.
“Hodgsons have done a remarkable job in a short space of time.”
“After starting out not so long ago as a local pub side, they have quickly worked their way through the leagues and they fully deserve to be where they are now.”
“It is great for the Beverley that we now have two sides in the top division.”
Hodgsons FC have much to prove this season, last year they were beaten by Beverley Town in the cup 1 – 0. The match was a close affair though the Tanners looked off the pace something boss Lee Hastings has been working on in the summer.
Hodgsons have played some tough pre season games and there has been huge emphasis on increasing fitness within the squad.
New players have arrived though there are still big question marks still remain over their inability to find a regular goalkeeper for the past two seasons.
Hastings has signed a new keeper, Dom McMahon, though highly rated McMahon is yet to make an appearance as he continues to recover from injury. Hastings is confident he will be fit for Saturday’s opener against champions Reckitts AFC
Hastings told HU17.net;
“I want to finish above Beverley Town, so do my players.”
“Town have been too long the highest placed Beverley team……it’s all about to change.”
