KARLY Hurst is confident his Godmanchester Rovers side can improve on last season's performance ahead of the new campaign. Rovers finished last season third from bottom of the Ridgeons League Division One and were the lowest goal scorers in the league. However, Hurst, who takes sole charge of the team this season with Eric Cheesewright moving to general manager, told The Hunts Post he believes his side will do better. He said: "Last season, we went into the season without a recognised goal scorer whereas this year we have brought in a couple of new faces to add to what we already have. "We have 20 players in the first team squad and it will be difficult to pick a side for the first game, which is how it should be." Hurst, who has appointed brother David as first team coach, is tipping Ely City to continue last season's good form, but insists his side can have realistic ambitions of a mid-table finish. - Godmanchester begin their season at home to Fakenham on Saturday.
