VIDEO: Stowmarket Town new boy Sweeney says debut helps to silence his critics
Stowmarket Town forward Robbie Sweeney gives his post-match reaction to Saturday's 2-1 opening weekend win over Thetford Town to sports editor Russell Claydon on Saturday.
The player was one of eight new signings at Greens Meadow over the summer, having signed from Wroxham.
It was a memorable debut for Sweeney, who scored the opening goal in the 35th minute to send Stow on their way to an opening day victory for the first time in five years.
Scott Chaplin, another new signing making his debut for the Old Gold & Blacks, added a second in the 64th minute before Thetford pulled one back via Valta Rocha nine minutes from time.
* Stowmarket travel to newly-promoted Framlingham Town on Tuesday (7.45pm) before changing their focus to FA Cup action on Saturday, at home to Basildon United. See Friday's Bury Free Press for a round-up with manager Rick Andrews and a preview to the week ahead.
