ALVECHURCH boss Darren Byfield is on the hunt for fresh faces after seeing his side crash out of this season's FA Cup at the first hurdle.

Church slipped up in the first qualifying round of the competition as they lost 1-0 at Northern Premier League Division One side Belper Town last Saturday.

A late goal from Charlie Dawes sent the Nailers through to disappoint Darren Byfield's men.

The boss was unhappy with the lack of desire from his side and says plans are already underway to bring in new players before this Saturday's visit of Peterborough Sports.

He said: "I was really, really disappointed and hunt to go out of the FA Cup in the manner we did.

"The result and loss was hard to take but not as much as the performance.

"We didn't lay a glove on them when we should be going there and being positive and putting them under pressure.

"I can't accept that and will be looking to bring some new players into the squad. Irons are already in the fire and hopefully we'll get a few things done before the weekend.

"The players here have been given a chance and can't have any complaints if they don't keep their place.

"I want to be successful and build on the work Ian Long did last season.

"Even if we'd have won I'd have been saying the same because we are not showing consistency in our performances.

"We're not far off but we need the right people to come in and to tweak a few things in certain positions. That was clear after Saturday."
