Squad’s togetherness is key to Hucknall’s fine form

Hucknall Town manager Andy Graves believes keeping largely the same squad together once again is paying dividends as Hucknall remain unbeaten.

A thumping 7-1 away league win at Hilcote Harriers on Saturday was followed by a 3-1 Floodlit Cup win at Teversal Reserves on Tuesday and Graves smiled: “We are still in all the cups, which happens when you are doing well, but our squad is big enough to cope.

“Our form is good and we are rotating everyone, giving them all game time.

“We have to keep our feet on the ground and hope it continues.”

He added: “We won’t win anything with a team, you win things with a squad and I couldn’t be happier this year.

“We only brought three new players in, so it’s the same squad that has developed and improved again.

“Some of these lads have been with us four years and came here when they were relatively young. They have improved and we’ll see where it takes us.”
