“Best thing I’ve personally achieved” – Sudbrook’s title winning Cann
Sudbrook CCFC manager Daryl Cann says his sides title win last week is the best thing he achieved in his footballing career.
The promotion means that Sudbrook will be playing in the highest division in the clubs history, which has shown how Cann has elevated the club.
“As a manager this is the best thing I’ve personally achieved. Gwent County Division 2 is the highest Sudbrook CCFC has ever been so to match that feels great. The one thing this club has never had before is a squad like the current one so there’s no reason we can’t challenge again next season.
Sudbrook who have been dominant throughout this season, winning the league by some margin with a convincing 7-2 victory away at Severn Tunnel last week, confirmed promotion originally with a 1-0 victory over Nantyglo.
“To be honest Severn Tunnel battled hard and the scoreline probably doesn’t do them justice. It wasn’t our best performance of the season but it was always comfortable – sometimes a little too comfortable which allowed them to hit us on the break a few times.”
In such a convincing title win, Sudbrook have smashed the 100 goals barrier in the season, scoring 104 goals in the process and conceding just 32 goals, it has been a case of defending well and scoring considerably more than the opposition.
Stev Wilson has been amongst the goals this season and takes credit for almost half of Sudbrook’s goals, scoring 39 goals for the Snakes.
Steven Hepple has managed to get 7 clean sheets to his name in Sudbrook’s season.
“It’s always great to smash the 100 goal mark, the lads have been prolific in front of goal but also only conceding 30 is just as good an achievement for our defence. A great team effort this season.
It comes down to the strength in the squad, with the new players I approached last summer, they have come in and made an instant impact. There’s been a great team spirit from day one – a pleasure to be apart of.”
Despite promotion and the title wrapped up, Cann says he won’t change his sides approach to the remaining games as they prepare for life in Division Two although players from the 2nd team may be given an opportunity as they attempt to impress the manager.
“We’ve literally played every formation possible this season – I think the players available on the day pick the formation rather than trying to slot players into positions they aren’t familiar with. I would like to give more of the 2nd Team a chance if the opportunity arises before the end of the season.
