Steve Smith urges Bishop's Stortford fans to pack the ProKit UK Stadium for Lewes match
Steve Smith would love to see a big crowd packed into the ProKit UK Stadium this Saturday (Dec 8) to cheer Bishop’s Stortford on in another huge game against Lewes (3pm).
The Blues owner and joint manager saw his side triumph 2-1 at promotion rivals Worthing at the weekend to move up to third place in the Bostik League, Premier Division.
They are now gearing up for another big test against Lewes, who are also firmly in promotion contention – they went into last night’s scheduled match against Corinthian-Casuals in eighth place.
Smith, who has seen the Blues take 26 points from 11 matches since taking joint charge with striker Jamie Cureton, hailed the win at Worthing as one of their best performances of the season.
“It was another massive performance from the boys,” he said. “This was the best we’ve played away all season against a very good Worthing side.
“I’m very proud of everyone involved. As I said last week, we have to keep our feet on the ground and enjoy what we’re doing at the moment.
“Thanks to everyone that travelled. I hope you all had a great day and I hope we get a big crowd against Lewes on Saturday.”
Lewes knocked Stortford out of the FA Trophy last season with a 2-0 win at the Dripping Pan. They last met in league action in the 2010-11 season, with a pair of narrow wins for the Blues helping send Lewes down from Conference South.
The Blues also face a tough game next Monday when they travel to seventh-placed Haringey Borough. The north London side are the only side ahead of Stortford in the form guide having taken 16 points from their last six games.
