Last season is in the past says Kidderminster Harriers defender

DEFENDER Mickey Demetriou says Kidderminster Harriers have to forget how well they did last season and focus on the current campaign.
Despite failing to win any of their first 10 games last term, the Aggborough outfit ended up finishing second in non-League’s top-flight and narrowly missing out on automatic promotion.
Inevitably, that raised the bar of expectation on Steve Burr’s side.
Nine points from six games this time around is not a bad return – it’s eight better than this time last year – but Demetriou feels the team, who visit Welling United today (3pm), have plenty more to offer.
The left-back, on the standby list for England ‘C’s match against Latvia next week, also wants Harriers, who currently lie 12th, to be judged on the present and not on what has gone before.
“We know we’ve got to play better to win games,” the 23-year-old said. “Everyone keeps going back to last year but it’s a new season now.
"We can’t dwell on what happened last season; it’s happened, it’s gone and we just have to start again.
“We know we can play better, we’ve just got to work hard in training, day in, day out, and hopefully it will come to us again.”
