New boys can lift us, says Lee

MANAGER Lee Knight is hoping his new signings can kick-start Studley’s campaign following their FA Vase exit, writes Emily Liles.
The Beehive outfit lost 4-1 to Cradley Town in the Vase last Saturday and have recorded just one victory in the Midland Football Alliance.
Knight believes the Hammers were fortunate to win by such a signifcant margin but was disappointed his side failed to take their opportunities.
He said: “We created a hat full of chances and should have been three or four nil up by half-time.
“The result flattered Cradley but in the second half we were poor and paid the price. Scoring goals has been a big problem fso hopefully we can change that sooner rather than later.”
As well as not scoring goals, Studley have struggled defensively and have been on the end of heavy league and cup defeats.
Following the slow start, the Bees have brought in forward Nathan Edgington and defender Alexander Henry who both have experience at Midland Alliance level. Knight hopes both will play a part in his side’s upcoming league fixtures.
“I’ve managed to bring in two new players,” added the Bees boss.
“Alexander Henry spent pre-season with Redditch but has come in and started training with us. I also hoping Nathan will help us score some goals.
“We’ve had some games between ourselves in training this week so the new players can adapt and get to know the way our current players play.”
Studley take on Rocester at the Beehive on Saturday (3pm kick-off) as the resume the league.
