GREAT Wakering Rovers boss Garry Kimble is aware AFC Hornchurch may enjoy a ‘new manager bounce’.

Former Southend United and Canvey Island defender Mark Stimson has replaced the long-serving Jim McFarlane as chief of the Urchins.

And Kimble, whose Wakering side will make the short trip to the Isthmian Premier League club in the fourth round of the Essex Senior Cup tonight, is aiming to see off Stimson’s outfit.

Kimble said: “The Essex Senior Cup is an important competition for us.

“We want to have a good run in it and I think that is quite important for us.

“Getting through to the quarter-finals would be great, but we know it will be difficult.

“Hornchurch have a new manager and he will want to win the match, just like we do.

“Going on a good run in the Essex Senior Cup can help with momentum.

“I think the momentum is already there for us but we need to cut out the silly errors.”

Wakering will go into tonight’s meeting having suffered a narrow defeat to Tilbury on Saturday, while Stimson picked up a point in his first match in charge after leaving Waltham Abbey.
