New Halesowen Town manager Morrell Maison has promised supporters an exciting brand of attacking football as he bids to awake one of the non-league's "sleeping giants".

Maison was named as the new boss at the Grove only hours after outgoing manager Martin O'Connor was relieved of his duties following a dismal 3-0 FA Cup defeat away at Evesham on Saturday.

Maison who has previously managed Kettering Town believes his new club have all the ingredients to make a big impact on non league football and believes a tilt for promotion is still within their reach despite of their stuttering start.

He said: "This is very much a challenge I'm looking forward to because I see Halesowen as one of the sleeping giants of non-league football.

"There is no doubt in my mind that they are punching well below their weight at the minute.

"I've only been here a couple of days but from what I've already seen this club has the potential to go along way and I really expect us to be mounting a promotion push at the end of the season.

"The people here have been fantastic in welcoming me and I would go as far as to say the infrastructure here is bigger and better than Kettering."

The new man who has also managed Milton Keynes City and Buckingham Town will take charge of his first game this Saturday when the Yeltz welcome Brackley in the FA Trophy.

Maison as encouraged supporters to get down to the ground for the game as he aims to entertain.

He added: "I play football one way and one way only and that is on the deck.

"We will aim to entertain supporters and bring a real feel good factor back to the club while winning games in the right way."

Maison has not taken much time in bringing in some fresh faces with former Spurs and England U21 international Darren Caskey joining as player coach.

The 33-year-old cultured midfielder who during a distinguished professional career also played for Notts County and Bristol City has initially signed on a three-month loan deal from Kettering Town with him then expected to sign up permanantly in January.

Morell has also raided his former club to sign young striker Nathaniel Waite and defender Kevin Spencer.

Despite bringing in three new faces in as many days the new man has ensured the current squad they will be given their chance to impress before wholesale changes are made.

One player who it seems will be moving on, however, is Nick Wright who is believed to be close to agreeing terms with Blue Square North outfit Tamworth.
