Huntingdon Town chairman Doug McIlwain wants the club’s players to enjoy the climax of their United Counties League Premier Division season.

It has been a campaign of little joy for a side already consigned to a rock-bottom finish and relegation after picking up just seven points from their 38 previous fixtures.

McIlwain is hopeful a Huntingdon side managed by Bob Warby, who took charge at the beginning of February, can add to that tally in their four remaining games.

Three of those are at Jubilee Park, starting tomorrow night when they entertain a Holbeach United side challenging for third place (7.45pm).

McIlwain said: “I’m looking forward to the final few games and hopefully the players are as well.

“It has been a tough season for everyone connected to the club.

“But it is important to enjoy our football as we look to move forward again.

“It would be nice to see a few more people down at Jubilee Park for our three remaining home games.

“A bit of support would really boost the lads and hopefully the people of the town can play their part in helping us to turn the club around.”

Huntingdon were beaten 3-0 at Cogenhoe last Saturday.

They face a short trip up the A1 to Yaxley this Saturday.
