THE hard work is paying off at last.

That is the view of Kendal Town boss Steve Edmondson after his side recorded back to back league wins for the first time this season.

The Mintcakes stormed back from two down to see off in form Brighouse Town 4-2 on Saturday and in doing so edge up to 14th spot in the BetVictor League table.

And the Town chief said he was delighted for everyone at the club that the revival was now gathering pace.

"There are so many people who have been working so hard both off the field and on the pitch, and it's great to see the rewards coming," he said.

"I've said before I could see good performances coming and Saturday was a fantastic effort.

"It's always difficult to come from two down but Brighouse were unbeaten in six games before that so the players deserve the credit."

And Edmondson said he now had proof as to how hard his players were working thanks to a new electronic monitoring device which tracks they players' performance during a game.

The devices, which have been supplied by Windermere based sports technology company PlayerMaker and gathers "all technical, tactical, biomechanical and physical movement on and off the ball" were worn by all the Town players on Saturday.

"We trialled them in the game against Workington earlier this season and the players wore the on Saturday and will be doing so in the future," said Edmondson.

He said the devices provided a huge amount of invaluable data which he and his coaching team could utilise to analyse team and individual performances.

And Edmondson said one statistic the tracking device revealed was that Joseph Dickson, whose two goals played a big part in Town's triumph, had run more than 10 kilometres during the game, the highest of any home player.

He said he was very pleased with Dickson's performance and indeed his overall development as a player, and he was especially pleased as Dickson is one of several players from the South Cumbrian area who were now established first team regulars.

"I had Joseph with me at Ambleside and at Milnthorpe and I always believed he had the ability, and now he's showing it and his confidence is growing," said the Town manager.

But despite the welcome upturn in fortunes which has put daylight between Kendal and the relegation zone, Edmondson warned there were serious challenges ahead which would test his improving side, starting with Saturday's trip to promotion chasing Marske United.

"I know they are a very good side and will be a tough test, and our next three fixtures are against top five sides," he said.

"We know there will be setbacks and there are tough challenges ahead, but we have made a lot of progress and we just want to keep going in the right direction."
