We've Got To Add An Element Of Surprise Says Beadle

Peter Beadle Talking To Players After Their 6-1 Win At Lads Club Yesterday
Hereford manager Peter Beadle has said that his side must add an 'element of surprise' to their play after being too predictable last season.

"My worry sometimes is that we’re a little too predictable," said Beadle as reported by the Southern League.

"Last season I think there were some games when the sides we were playing knew exactly what was going to come at them and when.

"We were a bit too easy to figure out, so we will need a plan B, plan C and even a plan D for the EVO-STIK League South Premier.

"The higher you go, the bigger clubs you play again and the more organised they are so we’ve got to add the element of surprise as we won’t get away with it at Step 3.”

Beadle says that supporters can't expect Hereford to run away with the title as they've done in the last two seasons.

"I’ve said before, it’s a whole new ball game at this level and we’re playing against clubs that, like ourselves, were in the Conference not so long ago. It’s a very high standard of football.

"The likes of Kettering and Weymouth have real history, then there’s Slough Town and Farnborough who were in the top flight of Non-League too a few years back.It will be very competitive and we will need to be ready for the challenges that are ahead of us."
