Stuart Hughes (Corbett Sports Area Manager) and Andy Preece
Andy Preece is a happy man.
The Airbus UK boss has just won the Corbett Sports Manager of the Month Award for September – and his team’s undefeated streak in all competitions has reached 10 League matches and a place in the Semi Finals of the Word Cup has also been secured during the week.
‘To beat Bangor at their place in the League (last Friday) and then to beat TNS (Word Cup – Tuesday) has taken a lot of mental and physical strength from our lads. We’ve learned a lot from last season and are now becoming far more difficult to beat.
‘This is a tough league but I think that our European games helped us in our preparation. We started well and if we quality for Europe again it will be a huge achievement.’
‘It’s going to be very difficult to finish above TNS – especially since we have five less squad members this season. We have gone for strength not depth and while we stay injury free we can compete with anyone’.
Rhyl will be the visitors to the Hollingsworth Group Stadium on Friday night and while Preece would obviously love to continue his side’s unbeaten run – he anticipates a difficult task:
‘Rhyl have done well since coming back up. They gave us a good game up at their place and there’s no doubt that we have a tough night ahead of us but hopefully we can stretch our League run to eleven matches undefeated’.
Mae Andy Preece wedi arwain Airbus UK i frig Uwch Gynghrair Corbett Sports a Rownd Gyn-derfynol Cwpan Word. ‘Dyw bechgyn Brychdyn heb golli ’run o’u deg gêm Gynghrair hyd yma ac mae Preece yn hynod o falch gyda dechrau da ei glwb i’r tymor. Byddai’n hynod hapus os gwnaiff Airbus efelychu eu campau’r tymor diwethaf a chyrraedd Ewrop unwaith eto hyd yn oed os yw hynny’n golygu gorffen yn ail y tu ôl i’r Seintiau Newydd. Bydd Preece a’i dîm yn gobeithio ymestyn eu rhediad heb golli yn y Cynghrair i unarddeg pan fydd Y Rhyl yn teithio i’r Maes Awyr nos Wener.
