Lomas Praises Coaching Staff and Latest Additions as Lichfield City Enter Final Run In

In his latest interview with club media, the Lichfield City Skipper Dan Lomas praised his side’s latest additions and the conduct of the coaching staff as they close in on the final three games of their league campaign.

The midfield general also expressed his delight with how well his side has performed so far this season:

“I’m really pleased with us. We started the season brilliantly and have kept the run going. We’ve been flying in the league and still have two semi-finals to play for as well.

“The whole squad is still buzzing and everyone is desperate for a place in the starting 11 each week. It’s tough considering the group that we’ve got – I mean the talent we’ve had just on the bench is unbelievable.

The changing room is phenomenal, we’re all like brothers. it’s such a close-knit unit and that’s what has brought us so far this season.”

Ivor Green and Wayne Chapman have recently secured the signings of two more players to their side, to bolster Lichfield for the final run in.

Tamworth Town’s Callum Griffin has returned to the club on loan after a short spell in Lichfield last year.

The other man to put pen to paper is the exceptionally talented Demetri Brown - who has been a thorn in the side of Premier Division defences since making his debut against Congleton.

Lomas couldn’t be more impressed with the latest additions to the group:

“It can be tough on a player to such a closely-knit dressing room, but credit to them. They’ve just fitted in and gelled so well with the squad – not to mention the performances on the pitch, they’ve been really good.

“Credit to the gaffers as well for bringing in the right type of players at this point in the season.”

To conclude the interview, the club captain also commented on the club’s ambitions for the end of the season.

“We’re just going to try and finish as strong as we can. Of course, we want to win the league but see ourselves as the underdogs now. To not get something out of this season, however, would be a disaster – be it the league title, a cup or promotion. We’ve got a tough run in, but I back these lads so much and I believe in every single one of them.

“We’re doing all that we can and working as hard as we can. Hopefully, we can have another night like the J.W. Hunt Cup win at the Molineux last year.”

Lichfield’s final three games of the league campaign will see them take on Darlaston Town on Saturday (6th April) before they head to Highgate in the midweek and then welcome Studley to the Trade Tyre Community Stadium on April 13th, in what promises to be an absolute thriller, to conclude the 2023/24 season.
