CHIPPENHAM TOWN: Managerless Bluebirds are in safe hands
ALAN Griffin says that the Bluebirds won’t allow their season to be thrown out of kilter by Nathan Rudge’s departure last week.
Striker Griffin, who has captained Chippenham so far this season, thinks that he and the rest of his side’s senior players will be doing everything that they can to ensure that the Bluebirds squad remain focused on giving their all on the pitch.
“There’s three or four of us lads in the dressing room that are experienced like Phillo (Lee Phillips), Harvs (Iain Harvey) and Adie Harris that would never let that happen,” said Griffin.
“We’ve played in this league for a long time and we know what it’s about so we’re alright.
“Everyone who’s out there is trying 100 per cent and rightly so because that's what's expected at the club.
“Nath’s left, which is disappointing because he was trying to do something here, but he had his own reasons, which is fair enough. As players, we’ve just got to kick on and play for whoever’s in charge of us.
“I wasn’t expecting it at all. I don't know the ins and outs of it but if he’s stopped enjoying it or it's affecting his life, then he’s made the right decision – football's only football and you’ve got to be enjoying it and you’ve got to be wanting to come to this place.
“We’ve got to move on now. The lads that are here want to be here and want to do the right things for the club.
“I think Nath’s given a lot of lads from lower divisions a chance to play football and when Saturday comes, they want to be out there playing for Chippenham – there isn’t a lad in the dressing room that doesn't want to be here.”
