FELIXSTOWE and Walton United manager Paul Adams has issued a rally call to his players as they look for the points that will lift them out of the bottom two in the Premier Division of the Jewson League.

His team go into their game at Gorleston tomorrow with the following plea ringing in their ears:

"We have a huge mountain to climb but as long as we have a chance to stay up we will continue to try and do our best.

"It won't be easy but it wouldn't be Felixstowe and Walton if it was. The bottom, line is we look doomed but if ever we need to meet a challenge head-on it is now. So my challenge to the players is let's give the last nine games our best shot and if we fail it will not be for lack of effort.

"We owe it to the people who raise funds, administrate and serve the club so well. We must play as though our survival depends on it."
