Benjamin said: “To be honest, RCA are a good team, but we showed the ability that we have got to match them, we have enough ability in our team to match anyone in the Northern League. (more…)

Ferrell Talking to the Media after Celtic Nation Game

Bedlington Terriers have acted swiftly following the sacking of Gary Innes, making the former Newcastle United midfielder Andy Ferrell their new manager.

The 31-year-old, who joined near the back end of the season as Innes’ assistant, will take charge for the first time in pre-season and is “determined” to get the club back to winning ways.

Ferrell said: “Ronan [Liddane] asked me, and it is no surprise that I said yes because it is always something that I have wanted to do with the coaching side of football.

“One or two people may have their opinions, but anyone who has worked with me will say that it is something that I have being passionate about and enjoyed. I would like to thank Gary for the opportunity that he gave me, which I respect him for doing that.

“My hopes are to improve on where we have finished the past two season because we can’t do any worse, the season is what it is and I would like to think we would be comfortable. We won’t be a pushover.”

.he midfielder has a wealth of knowledge and experience following his 11-year spell as a professional footballer at Watford, Hereford and Kidderminster Harriers to name just a few.

He added: “It is an opportunity for myself to pass on some knowledge that I have learned from my 11-year career as a professional footballer.

“I will be ringing my old manager Martin Foyle for a bit of advice, advice is something you either take or you don’t, and I like to listen.”

Chairman Ronan Liddane said: “Andy has a great knowledge of the Northern League, his enthusiasm is second to none, and he knows lots of players from his 11-yearprofessional career.

“As a club we would like to wish Gary all the best, and to thank him for his efforts and I am sure that he will get back into football soon.”

Innes was relieved of his duties following the sides disappointing end to the season, which left them teetering above the relegation zone.

The Terriers somewhat struggled to find form under the former manager, who took over in February, after they won just one game from his 14 games in charge.

“I want to get the feel good factor back at the club, and I would like the public back supporting Bedlington, so we need to win games to bring them back.

“The fans are there, and the only way we can get fans back watching the side is by getting good results on the pitch and making the team a proud one to support.

“I am asking them to believe in the lads, and hopefully we can have a successful season, “said the former professional.
