“We try to be as competitive as possible” says Sharpness manager on Severn Sport on Dean Radio

Sharpness manager Tom Paterson says his side aim to be as competitive as possible in every game they play, as they continue to turn heads in the Gloucestershire County League. 

Paterson joins us on Severn Sport on Dean Radio this weekend to discuss life at Sharpness, both on and off the field and to look ahead to their top two clash against leaders Frampton United on Saturday.

“During the summer we said that we wanted to be as competitive as possible in every game,” said Paterson on the show.

“We wanted to give a lot of the boys who won the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League a chance at a higher level and I think a lot of the Bristol boys in particular didn’t know too much about us, so we had the surprise factor earlier in the season. 

We have done great this season and credit to the players. When we have lost a game this season we have reacted well in the next fixture and when you do that, there’s not much more you can ask for,” Paterson added.

Also on the show is Hartpury College’s Football Academy Manager Paul Tassell, who discusses youth football and managing the Glos Schools FA side to their ESFA National Inter County Trophy semi final win on Monday night.
