Pat can point Capel Plough in right direction

FOOTBALL: Pat Tynan has the right credentials to point Capel Plough in the right direction.

He is the man responsible for the �70million worth of sign work being installed on the A14 from Felixstowe to Kettering.

After taking a time-out while based in Northamptonshire, Tynan is now working out of Sproughton as the main road artery from Suffolk to the midlands and north continues to be frequently clogged by cones.

“Work commitments allow me to be back running the Capel first team again, although Archie Arnold does most of the work and Steve O’Leary is also a big player,” said Tynan, who faces up to his brother Sean’s Framlingham side in the Senior Division of the Kingsley Healthcare SIL tomorrow.

Sean took over as joint Capel boss last season but is now working with Rob Allum at a Framlingham side that beat Ridgeons League Stowmarket Town in the FA Vase last weekend.

“I was banned for the opening three games, but I came back as a substitute last Saturday,” added Pat Tynan.

“And I plan to be involved tomorrow and perhaps rough things up a bit with Framlingham no doubt on a high!

“But mid-table is perhaps where we are heading this season although our injury situation should improve as the season goes on.

“Sean did a good job here last season, but there will no brotherly favours tomorrow.”

Arnold has recently undergone a knee operation, while Damian Constable broke his leg when just kicking a ball in pre-season and Miles Donovan hopes to be back after Christmas having already been out for 18 months with a cruciate knee problem.

Striker Ricky Thurlow and Chris Wall have both been out with knee trouble with Plough unable to name their full quota of substitutes and having only Arran Boreman as an ever present after just four games.

Luke Whitwell will play in goal tomorrow now that Nick Hunt has hung up his goalkeeper’s jersey while Dean Dale and Steve Townes have also proved welcome additions this season.

The SIL match of the day will involve last season’s runners-up Felixstowe United who will be putting their 100% record to the test against 2009/10 champions Old Newton, who have lost their last two games.

Crane Sports travel to point-less Haughley United with reserve team manager Dave Ward in caretaker charge.

Ollie Langham has resigned due to work commitments and a taking on a new college course.

Chairman Steve Roper said: “We wish Ollie well and thank him and his father Russell for all the hard work and commitment during their association with the club.

“We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic manager to take over, and interested applicants should contact me by email or mobile 07836 641142 to arrange an interview with our committee.

“We are not going to rush into an appointment as we have the experienced Dave Ward, standing in although we would obviously like to fill the position as soon as possible.”
