Message from Manager

Hi all for this weeks blog, Saturday saw us take on oldland abbotonians at their place and we knew it would be a tough game, they had signed several new players in the build up to the game not least Matt Huxley who has been prolific in the premier division and scored goals consistently every year. We had a few injury problems as well with both Danny Golden, jack Burnett & Andy Mitchell all struggling through injury, although the latter two both took a place on the bench in a needs must situation. We started the game brightly and although we did have one scare when 1on1 with Liam Norris their striker could only hit it against our keeper allowing him to make a good save. We took the lead when a lofted ball into the box was headed home by Connor Williams for his first goal of the season, I was so pleased for Connor personally as he has been playing well for us and created so much, however like all strikers I know he judges himself on goals so it was great to get that monkey off his back. We had another couple of very good chances in the first half but went in at half time 1-0 up. The second half started badly as Oldlands equalised inside 3 minutes with a well worked goal. After this we started to control the game more again and Connor Williams who was superb on the day put in a great crossed ball for Marcus Cook to connect with on the volley and steer home for our 2nd. We had so more chances after this, cookie himself could easily have had a hatrick on the day and Kris Hastings headed just over from a corner which came close to settling the game. It was another strong away win for us and our away form has been great all season, the week before we had lost at home 0-2 to a Roman Glass side who I firmly believe are the best in the division, certainly the best we have come up against so far. This takes us on to two home games coming up, Devizes at home in the league on Saturday is the first one, we lost 0-3 away earlier in the season which was not a fair reflection at all in a game where we easily had 20 shots and couldn’t convert, we also had our keeper carried off inside 15 minutes which didn’t help matters, Kieran Davis going in goal and actually pulled off an unbelievable save! National league South team Weston Super Mare are next up on Tuesday 6th March, we beat a competitive Yeovil side before to get this far and the support from the town was fantastic and helped the lads and the club so much, we need all the help and support we can get for this one too so I hope we can count on your support down Moor Lane for the fixture. See you all Saturday/Tuesday (beast from the east permitting!!)
