Maddocks with a mission
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Gresley Rovers boss Frank Northwood hopes that the Indian summer of striker Andy Maddocks continues to burn brightly tomorrow.
Maddocks has been close to retirement more than once this year, but is currently enjoying another new lease of life at the Moat Ground.

And tomorrow, with Paul Acklam out through injury, the former Tamworth and VS Rugby front-runner is likely to be given a vital assignment as Rovers travel to Gainsborough to meet Worksop Town in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Northwood said: ďAndyís finding his feet again. Heís doing a good job and has got three goals already this season. Paul Acklamís a fine player, but football is all about having a strong squad and Iím sure Maddocks will do a job for us again tomorrow.Ē

Maddocks said: ďIíd decided to pack up the game before the season started. I kept getting little knocks and couldnít shake them off and ended limping all through the week. On the first night of pre-season training at Hinckley I decided Iíd had enough and told them I was finished.

ďThen Frank came on and said he was short for the friendly against Dudley and everything took off again from there. Iíve shaken it off now and Iím enjoying myself again. I felt all right when I came on against Tipton on Saturday and I was pleased with my two goals, especially the first one.Ē
