Evans hoping Wynter can transform season

Romulus update, by Andy Mitchell

ROMULUS boss Richard Evans boosted his squad this week with the addition of former Coventry City prodigy Curtis Wynter as he looks to turn his side’s fortunes around.

Wynter, 20, made an appearance for the Sky Blues’ first team before playing in Spain for professional club Jerez through the Glenn Hoddle Academy.

The full back or midfielder then returned to the UK and had a brief spell in the Blue Square Bet Premier with Hayes and Yeading United before linking up with the Roms.

The youngster is expected to go straight into the side to face Carlton Town on Saturday as Evans is without midfield pairing Gavin Day (injured) and Nathan Walker (suspended).

The Roms will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing result at Coalville Town last Saturday as they allowed a two goal lead to slip, losing 4-2 in Leicestershire.

Evans said: “We made a good start but we didn’t defend well and suffered through individual mistakes.

“We had a good chat afterwards and we need to get the Romulus of old back – we need to roll up our sleeves and show some spirit – the lads here have had enough chances, they need to show their worth now.”

The Romulus manager will also have to make do without experienced goalkeeper Lee Evans, who has returned to former club Chasetown with Lewis Exall expected to deputise.

Evans added: “We will go into the game with a positive outlook as performances have generally been quite good.

“We have proved we can score against decent sides now and have got that bit of belief back, we just need to cut out those errors and I am sure we can climb the table.

“Carlton will be a test like any other side in this league but it is a game we are capable of getting a result from.”
