Vanarama's National League South Fan Preview: Concord Rangers

Concord Rangers supporter David Hayton has his say on the new season - what does he think will happen?

League sponsors Vanarama have been getting the fans’ perspective ahead of the new season - which kicks off this Saturday

The new season is nearly upon us - what have Concord Rangers fans got to look forward to?
The one thing that us supporters always ask for; watching our side giving it 100 per cent on the pitch again.

It’s all change this summer with your new manager at the helm. What will Danny Scopes bring to the club?
He will bring plenty to the table. A good knowledge of the club comes first and always gives you a head start. But he also has the passion and the desire to see his team play the right way.

What’s been the best bit of business done over the past few months?
The team has changed but retaining some of the experienced players from last season and also adding promising talent too. We’ve made good signings.

What will be different this season from last?
Most of the squad!

Who will be your one to watch coming August 3?
James Blanchfield. He’s a summer signing from Dagenham and he looks the part.

Who are the other sides to watch out for and could be in the promotion mix?
Hemel Rangers! Of course we call them that as they have our manager from last season, Sammy Moore, and a number of the players followed him. Billericay always talk a good game so it will be interesting to see how they do.

What ground are you most looking forward to getting to?
As many as I can!

And what game would you like to win more than any other and why!
That’s got to be Billericay - just to see the look on their faces!

What opposition player would you most like to see in your side - and what makes him so good?
That would be Tyrone Sterling. Never looked in trouble in any of last season’s games.

Finally, the big question - where do you predict your team will finish next season?
Mid-table would be good seeing as it's pretty much a whole new side. From what I've seen so far that looks very achievable.
