HIGHWORTH Town manager Jeff Roberts is aiming to sign off their debut season in the Southern League with a win as they host already relegated Fleet Town at the Save on Tyres Stadium on Saturday.

Playing at the highest level in their 125-year history, Highworth enjoyed a reasonably successful start to the Division One South campaign before slipping down the table after Christmas.

The Worthians are now in a mini-battle with Bristol Manor Farm to secure 14th place and take on a Fleet side that have only 16 points from their 37 league games.

Roberts wants one final effort from his players as they bid to end the season with only one defeat in April.

He said: If we get three points, then the only game we’ve lost this month will be Larkhall, which we’re disappointed with anyway.

“I thought we had enough opportunities last week to be able to beat Barnstaple, especially in the second half.

“For me, it’s been a bit of a disappointing end to the season.

“We could have done a lot better, but we’ve got to look at injuries and unavailability for holding us back.

“That’s something we’ll look at trying to improve next season.”

Despite a largely poor end to their season, Roberts has seen a number of positives from his team this term, both on and off the pitch.

The Town chief wants three more points to add to their tally as the club begins a busy summer of preparation for an improved showing next season.

He said: “If we can get to 47 points – if someone had said at the start of the season that we wouldn’t be far off 50 points, we’d have taken it.

“A lot of people thought we were going to get relegated, so all in all, it’s not been a bad season for us.

“Hopefully we can sign off with a win. Overall, 47 points would not be bad at all for us.

“It’s something we can aim to beat next season.”
