BUOYANT Bromsgrove Sporting boss Brendan Kelly has called for everyone to keep their feet on the ground after the Rouslers rewrote the record books again over Christmas.

They attracted their highest ever league crowd of 1,335 for the Boxing Day bash against Sutton Coldfield Town and then followed up with another 923 who watched the 4-1 win over AFC Dunstable.

A delighted Kelly confirmed: "It was unreal on Boxing Day. To be fair, Sutton Coldfield played their part. They must have brought 50 to 60 supporters together with a 'tequila band' which made for a really good atmosphere. It was all good humoured.

"We thought we might get over 1,000 but to get 1,335 was something else.

"I think the fact that we've got such a good youth set up with 21 sides has helped, which is why we are seeing so many youngsters coming through the gates

"But I'd also like to think we're playing an attractive brand of football, which is why so many people keep coming back.

"We set our stall out from the start of the season to play decent football and I think that has also helped to swell the crowds

"It was a really good game against Sutton. We went 2-0 up through Nathan Hayward and Jason Cowley before Sutton came back at us and there was a 20 minute period where they got a real foothold in the game".

Kelly's mood soon altered during the game against Dunstable.

The Rouslers found themselves 1-0 down at the break and Kelly admitted to losing his cool during the interval.

He claimed: "The water bottles went flying all over the place and I had to use a few choice words.

"The first half performance wasn't the Bromsgrove Sporting I recognise. We were carrying far too many players.

"In the second half, we started playing to our strengths again and I thought Josh Quaynor was exceptional on the day.

"However, both Peterborough Sports and Corby Town matched our performances and I feel that is starting to become a trend as the season unfolds.

"But we just have to concentrate on what we are doing. We have only lost two games this season which has put us in a good position and we have to maintain that form".

The Rouslers were due to visit Coleshill Town on New Year's Day before entertaining fifth placed Berkhamsted this Saturday when another bumper crowd is expected at the Victoria Ground.
