GREAT Yarmouth Town boss Paul Tong this week spoke his appreciation of an important member of the back-room staff.

“I would like to pay tribute to an unsung hero of the team - our therapist Marianne McNally. She has had a lot to do lately with our various injuries, and came up trumps with Stewart Roach in the March game.

“But she also comes along every Tuesday to training and keeps the lads in tip-top condition. She even helped one of the referee's assistants at Godmanchester on Saturday when he pulled up, though he was unable to continue. She's a real treasure, so thanks, Mazze!”

Marianne joined the club in 2008, having worked with Stewart Roach at Caldicott Hall. She assisted Terry Reeves at first, taking on full responsibility for the work when Reeves left earlier this season.

Ridgeons Division One leaders Yarmouth visit Brantham Athletic tomorrow, in one of their most important games of the season. The Essex side, like Yarmouth, have lost only one league game all season and currently have five games in hand. When the two teams met at the Wellesley earlier this season, a second-half Scott Woodcock goal ensured a 1-1 draw after Brantham had taken the lead through Ollie Mann.

Woodcock will be available for selection again after completing a three-match suspension. Hopefully, Stewart Roach will have recovered from his facial injury to resume battle in the Bloaters' front line.

On Tuesday, Yarmouth make the trip to Team Bury for a league encounter (kick-off 7.45pm). The Bloaters won 6-2 at the Wellesley in September when Roach scored a hat-trick.

The Reserves have no game tomorrow but are at home to Leiston on Tuesday (kick-off 7.45pm), a big night for the Bloaters as the Youth are also playing - away to Dereham Town Youth in the Ridgeons Youth Cup (kick-off 7.45pm).
