BOSS Paul Collicutt reckons his Simpsons have the right mix of attributes to continue their stunning start as an attacking three at Evesham United.

Brothers Kane, Kye and Cory scored six of United’s goals as Highworth Town were demolished 7-1 on their own patch on New Year’s Day.

Kane had opened his Robins account with a match-winning hat-trick in a 3-0 victory over Melksham Town three days previously and bagged four at Highworth.

But Collicutt believes his flying start in red and white is just as much about the support he has received from his relations.

“He is a strong lad and all three of the brothers offer something different,” said Collicutt.

“They have strengths and weakness, if they didn’t they would not be at this level but as a three they all bring something to the party. It is a good mix.

“It is not the fact they are brothers but that helps because they come from a close-knit family and are very protective of one another.

“There is also that level of competition too, which is healthy.

“Kane scored eight goals for Frome and I was delighted he opened his account for us against Melksham and he has just kicked on from there. I told him he would get opportunities and fair play to him, he put them away.

“Cory and Kye have been chipping in with the goals as well so they have not been doing too badly.

“I don’t think they have played together as a three before, two of them have but they seem to complement each other well.

“I genuinely believe they have different values to bring to the game. All three have a bit of pace about them and I think it might be an idea to have a race in training to see who is the quickest.”

In a quirk of fate, Kane Simpson may not have been selected to lead the line against Melksham had striker Steve Davies not been suffering with back trouble.

Davies was fit enough for a place on the bench in the past two games and will be assessed alongside Liam Harding, Will Wellon and Will Tunnicliff ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Bideford (3pm).
