THE manager of Kendal Town Football Club said his team learnt some ‘harsh lessons’ last season and hoped they could build on these next term.

The club were 19th when the league was voided due to the coronavirus crisis, having achieved 21 points from 29 games and sitting five points clear of relegation.

“I think we have learnt some harsh lessons this year,” said Steve Edmondson.

“Once we have learnt from the harsh lessons we’ll hopefully get things right this (coming) season and pick up more points in certain matches and finish higher.”

He added he was expecting some arrivals and departures in time for next season.

“We have got some ideas but I can’t say anything yet. We are chasing one or two players. One or two players have said they want to come,” he said.

“Hopefully we can finish mid-table. I think the experience a lot of the players got this season will stand them in good stead. We can move forward and hopefully get a better structure in the club.

“The club was financially struggling so hopefully we can get it on a better footing this season and move it forward.”

The team, like all others, are in limbo at the moment, stuck in isolation and eagerly anticipating a return to normality, with the players communicating via WhatsApp but naturally limited in the amount of exercise they can do.

“We are just waiting till the lockdown’s finished and hopefully we can get back training for the season to start,” said Mr Edmondson.
