INTERVIEW | Harry Lennon ready to put things right

Defender looking for response to Tuesday

30 October 2021

Summer signing Harry Lennon revealed he is ready to put things right ahead of today’s clash against Torquay United.

Last time out Lennon didn’t feature against Maidenhead on Tuesday, but the defender expressed that if they learn from that defeat, then they can go on and extend our unbeaten run at home.

He said: “We did the hard part getting back in the game, coming back from two nil down with ten men and I thought at 2-2 there was only one winner.

“It was disappointing to see us concede at the end but there were positives to take from it.

“It was a game which we should have won, and we have to put that right Saturday.

“If we put a few things right from Tuesday I’m certain that we can go and get the result we want.

The former Southend man has made seven appearances for the club so far and has battled hard on his return from injury.

With another sell-out crowd at the Racecourse for today’s game, he explained how crucial the fan’s support really is.

“Every home game we’ve played so far has had an unbelievable atmosphere.

“I can’t believe we’re in the National League getting crowds over 9,000 at home and selling out our away games.

“Their support is absolutely massive, and I hope we can repay them because Tuesday was disappointing.

“Keep doing what you’re doing and be our twelfth man. I know they don’t need me to tell them that because I know they will, they’ve been fantastic all season.

Today’s game will be the first game our chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds will have watched at the Racecourse after spending the week visiting the club and the town.

On Thursday and Friday both Rob and Ryan went to watch the players train at the Racecourse and Colliers Park; and Lennon added it was “refreshing to see that Rob and Ryan took time to get to know us, the club and see a bit about what everyone does day to day.

He continued: “It was good to finally meet Ryan and Rob at training, they’re good people and I’m sure they’re looking forward to it on Saturday.

“They enjoyed joining in with training and were both incredibly humble which was really nice for us players.

Our opposition currently lies 15th in the National League and despite a slightly lower position than they’d have hoped for, Lennon still expects it to be another tough test.

“They’re a strong team who always end up around the top few places in the league, and we’re expecting a tough game.

“It’s been tough for us so far and hopefully we don’t look back at the end of the season and think that recent results have killed us.

“If everyone sticks together, we’re only going to get better and hopefully I’ll be with the club for a while.”
