Yeovil Town skipper, Josh Staunton is looking forward to returning to Altrincham after guiding the side to a 1-0 win there as Caretaker manager at the end of the 2021-22 season.

Speaking exclusively to the Gloverscast’s Ben Barrett after the game against Barnet he said he has fond memories of his one-game stint as Manager

We go into Saturday with a clean slate, they’ve gone full time if I’m right, they’ll be a different type of outfit to what they were last year.

Obviously we know what they like, in terms of they like playing football, it’ll be a different test at times to tonight (against Barnet) who were quite direct at times.

I do have fond memories there, it’s a stadium which I’ll never forget, I think if you go into a game with a positive mindset and a visualisation of positivity it can only bode well.”

Staunton said he might have to wait for the dust to settle after the defeat to Barnet before reminding the new manager and players about his 100% win rare as a gaffer, but didn’t rule out making a light hearted comment or two as the week’s training went on.
