STEVE Edmondson has urged the Kendal public to get behind his improving team and roar them on to BetVictor League safety.

Saturday’s dramatic 2-2 draw against high flying Tadcaster, in which the Mintcakes rescued a point with an exquisite Patrick Allington free kick in the dying seconds, was watched by a crowd of 177, around double Town’s early season crowds.

The majority went home happy after seeing the home side stretch their unbeaten run to three games, and Edmondson said he hoped more football loving locals would come along in the coming weeks as his side makes a final push to secure safety.

“It’s great to see so many more people coming on to support us and it’s really appreciated, but it would be even better if even more fans came on in the next few games,” he said.

“And anyone who can help us on match days or during the week, please get in touch or come down to the ground.

“We would love to hear from you.”

Saturday’s battling draw continued Town’s recent revival and Edmondson said he was delighted that the efforts which have been put in behind the scenes were finally paying off.

“A lot of hard work has gone in over the last few months to stabilise the club and we have achieved that, and it’s great to now be able to take things forward and the results are showing we are doing that.”

The Mintcakes chief said he was especially pleased that Town had grabbed still managed to grab a draw on Saturday despite missing talismanic striker Emil Jaaskelainen and also Toby Twiname due to injury.

“I hold my hand up as I made a mistake changing things a bit but we reorganised at half time and it worked.”

The pair are expected to return shortly, and Town’s ranks have also been supplemented this week by further signings.

Brandon Lockett, who has joined the club from Division Two outfit Salford City, is a highly rated midfielder, while Precieux Ndongo has joined from Preston North End.

Lockett will train with Salford, who are now a full time Division Two outfit, during the week but will travel up for Town training sessions.

Callum Fawcett, who returned to the club last week, featured on Saturday, as did fellow new signing Gokhan Can.

The Turkish born player made the starting line up and though he was withdrawn at half time after struggling to make an impression, Edmondson believes he could still figure in his plans.

“He’s obviously very rusty but we’ll give him some time to work on his fitness with us and we’ll see how he does,” said the Town boss.

One bit of bad news is that Joseph Dickson has said farewell as he has now left to go travelling in Canada.

Town’s next challenge is a home clash against fellow strugglers Dunston on Saturday, when Edmondson hopes to extend the unbeaten run.
