Workington Reds boss not taking Barwell lightly
Last updated at 12:35, Thursday, 04 October 2012
Workington Reds boss Darren Edmondson is well aware that Southern League outfit Barwell are not going to be a pushover when the two sides clash in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
Despite being a division below Reds, Barwell, are high on confidence after a good start to their season.
The club, based near Leicester, have won five, drawn one and lost two in the Southern League this season and Edmondson is wary of the threat they pose.
“It will be a good game. They are going well in their league. They have big, strong players,” said the Reds boss.
“They have some experienced players in their team and this will be more difficult than the Blyth tie.
“We could find them in our league next year that’s how good they are.”
He added that he was pleased with the way his team played against Blyth Spartans on Monday.
Defender Kyle May’s first-half goal was enough to see off a stubborn Blyth, who are managed by former Reds boss Tommy Cassidy, with keeper Connor Grant making a string of good saves.
Edmondson added: “The performance was good and I am full of praise for the lads for getting through that tie.”
Reds play Barwell at the Kirkby Road Ground, which has a capacity of 2,500.
