Betts believes in Haverhill

YOUNG Haverhill boss Peter Betts believes his side can still drag themselves off the foot of the table and ensure their Ridgeon League Premier Division status remains in their hands.

YOUNG Haverhill boss Peter Betts believes his side can still drag themselves off the foot of the table and ensure their Ridgeon League Premier Division status remains in their hands.

With Whitton United having dropped out of the league this season, Lowestoft looking like they could be successful in getting promoted and Tiptree United having applied to move sideways into the Essex Senior League, it may yet turn out that no team is relegated from the Premier League.

Betts - whose side are 10 points adrift of Norwich United having accumulated just 17 points this season - doesn't want to leave anything to chance though.

He said: “We want to be controlling our own destiny,” said the 24-year-old ahead of today's trip to struggling Wisbech Town. “Our short term aim is to finish second bottom and completely ensure survival. There is still enough points to play for and, although our run in is difficult, a lot of our games are at home.”
