NEW Wells City FC first team manager Steve Laker is making sure his players are ready for the challenge ahead when they kick off their Western League Premier Division campaign.

“We’re working the lads really hard. In the Western League it’s all about fitness,” he said.

“I’ve got a three-year plan that I want to achieve. The first year is consolidating, then I’d like to build on that.”

Steve has joined Wells from Street, saying it was an opportunity he could not turn down, and has secured the services of Paul Comley, who has a wealth of Western League experience, as assistant manager, and ex-serviceman Taff Alexander as first team physio.

“We’re really excited about the new season,” said Steve. “The morale is high. My players are ready and I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do.”

Wells are at home to Cribbs in the FA Cup on August 5 (ko 3pm), before travelling to Odd Down for their first league fixture on August 8 (ko 7.45pm).
