HARWICH and Parkeston assistant manager Mike Wallace has hailed the commitment of boss Kieron Shelley.

The latter has had a "tough time" in recent weeks because of events away from football.

However, he has not missed a single match or training session and been rewarded by watching his side produce an amazing 12-game unbeaten run - a feat that equals the club's post-war record, set in 1964.

"Kieron's had a tough time lately but been absolutely brilliant," said Wallace.

"He hasn't missed a training session or match and his commitment to the club can't be faulted.

"It's been second to none and I'm pleased for him that things are going so well at the moment.

"He deserves it because of the time and effort he puts in.

"He's so dedicated and an absolute pleasure to work with.

"The boys love him and that's why they're so determined to do well for him."

Harwich registered their 12th straight victory by winning 2-0 at Wivenhoe Town on Saturday.

Jordan Heath and Callum Griffiths scored their goals.

"You could see the togetherness in our club from the way we celebrated the goals," added Wallace.

"The players wanted to share the moment with our supporters, who travelled in numbers once again and were absolutely first-class.

"We believe they're the best in the league and I hope they enjoyed their afternoon."

Next up for Harwich is a tricky match at the side directly above them in the table, Halstead Town.

The sides meet at Rosemary Lane on Friday (kick-off 7.45pm).
