Jojo Harries is ready to seize his Robins chance in the first XI when it comes along.

The left back who can also play in midfield has found himself out of the starting line-up for the opening five games of the campaign.

He featured a number of times last season, and is keen to show what he can do again.

He said: “It has been a difficult one for myself, but I am still training hard, looking after myself and I am looking to getting in the side sooner rather than later.

“I’ll be working harder and harder each week and waiting for the nod to help the side.

“There is a great togetherness in the squad this year, and the boys are feeling confident.

“My personal ambition is to get back in the team and help the squad to a big achievement this season, which overall would be the top six and to finish as high as we can.

“Also a cup run would be nice after narrowly missing out on two finals last season.”

 


"Obviously going up to Connahs Quay on Friday night is always going to be a tricky one but if we are right on the night and raring to go which I sure we will be, anything could happen."

Harries watched from the bench on Saturday as the Robins were downed 3-0 at Carmarthen.

Despite the result it has been a positive start and the former Caersws man believes the squad is strong that last year.

He said: “It has been a mixture of a start after last week’s defeat because if we got away with three points last week we would of been very happy with that.

“But look we are happy with where we are and what results we have picked up but we feel as a side we can do a lot better and should be higher in the table.

“It is most definitely a stronger side than last year, we’ve brought in some talented players and the likes of Leslie and Bails have brought a mass of experience.

“The main thing is the togetherness of squad this year and the desire to work for each other is right up there which will be a massive boost to the squad.”

Newtown head to Connahs Quay on Friday, looking to claim the scalp of the Nomads who came unstuck against Caernarfon Town on Tuesday evening.

Harries believes the Robins can beat any side in the league, and they are heading to Deeside to win.

He said: “100 per cent we can come away with a result on Friday but also we think we can beat any team in the league going forward.

“Obviously going up to Connahs Quay on Friday night is always going to be a tricky one but if we are right on the night and raring to go which I sure we will be, anything could happen.”
