'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Beevers & Hammond Happy To Face Music

Full-back Lee Beevers and midfielder Dean Hammond have both reacted positively to the acoustics inside The Weston Homes Community Stadium following the midweek home game.

And no, we don`t mean anything like half-time entertainment in Tuesday`s League Cup loss!

During the summer, Vital told you how the squad had helped supporters to improve the atmosphere by acquiring some new instruments in time for the new 2009/10 season. Today, first Beevers in the EADT and then Hammond on Dream 100 FM said it was making a difference already.

"There was a lot of noise behind the goal. It really echoed, and it travelled down the ground," said Beevers.

It was club skipper Hammond who asked the club to encourage fans to purchase them and he also sounded pleased with the result.

"The drum and the trumpet was something obviously that we wanted this year - you like when playing football for there to be a nice atmosphere and noise, the crowd singing and I think that helped. With the attendance, it was the first Tuesday night game but I think the higher the better."

It did encourage people to sing, that`s for sure.

As long as the players are happy facing the music behind goal at the stadium it can only help improve the club`s results at their year-old ground. It`s when the on-field XI starts dancing that we need to worry!
