Carmichael: my high-flying players are motivating themselves
HARWICH and Parkeston manager Matt Carmichael says his high-flying players are making his job easy.
The Shrimpers have romped to five victories out of five and sit joint-top of the Kent Blaxill Essex and Suffolk Border League premier division, along with Tollesbury.
In addition to plundering 24 goals and conceding just two, they have also made progress in the Border League Knockout Cup.
Carmichael says the task of picking his team from such a strong and talented squad is proving a welcome headache.
But in terms of firing his players up, he says his team-talks are a piece of cake.
“The players are motivating themselves,” said the proud Shrimpers boss.
“At any level, it’s hard to motivate players when they’re lacking confidence.
“You can be as enthusiastic and inspirational as you like, but that might not count for much when they cross the line.
“We’ve got the opposite situation here because the players believe they can win every game."
