In-form Tom Pope pays tribute to manager Neil Aspin

Top scorer Tom Pope says that the new manager reassured him straight away and kept his promises to the player.

Pope, who has netted five times in three games under new manager Neil Aspin, says that the manager promised him a better service and didn’t let him down.

It put me at ease straight away… What’s more, he has been as good as his word…

Pope told the Sentinel newspaper: “He came straight up to me and said ‘Popey, I know all about you and we will get you some support in games.’

“It put me at ease straight away. Like any player when a new manager comes in, I had spent a few days wondering what it would mean for me.

“I hadn’t been scoring, so would he rate me or would he think I was past it? Instead of that, he immediately gave me a lift and made me feel I was part of his plans.

“What’s more, he has been as good as his word. I’ve been playing with Marcus Harness and Ben Whitfield around me and that’s begun to show with results.”
