Hewitt raring to go for return to Brighouse
By Joe Usher
Defender Sam Hewitt is ready for a return to his former side Brighouse Town on Saturday.
After a man of the match display against Workington Town last weekend, and another commanding display on Tuesday night against Sheffield FC, Hewitt says he’s keen to go back to former side Brighouse and get the three points.
“It’ll be a weird experience going back, having played there a good few years, but if I get picked when I step across that white line I just want to do my best for Scarborough and hopefully we can come away with a win” said Hewitt.
He continued: “The squad is so strong that you can’t just be expecting a place so I’ve had to really put in the work when I’m in the team to make it harder for the manager to drop me. A good pre-season fitness-wise made me feel good going into the new season and we’ve made an excellent start.”
Boro will be looking to keep up their good form having lost only one game this season in all competitions and winning three from three away from the Flamingo Land Stadium.
But they will find it tough at old rivals Brighouse, who have endured an up and down start to the league season, winning two, losing three and drawing one so far under new manager Vill Powell. They currently sit one place behind Boro in 12th, however Steve Kittrick’s side have played two fewer games than their opponents going into the game at the Yorkshire Payments Stadium.
Brighouse are a familiar foe for the Seadogs, with Boro memorably making a huge stride towards sealing promotion to the Northern Premier League with a 2-0 win over The Tangerines back in April 2013 in front of a huge away support.
When asked if he had a message for the fans heading into the match, Hewitt said: “Keep singing those songs, keep getting behind us, you’ve been instrumental so far in all the games. Keep that up and I’m sure we can come away with a positive result.”
Boro head into the game knowing a win is vital to keep up with the early pace setters in the league and they head to West Yorkshire in good spirits off the back of two cup wins, scoring six goals and conceding none in the process.
Seats are still available to travel on the Supporters Coach to the game tomorrow, leaving Scarborough Railway Station at 11am. Cost £15 per head.
