After a good Easter, which saw us win all three games, last week saw us lose to late goals in away games against two of the league's top teams.

In midweek we travelled to fifth-placed Chesham United and we were 2-1 up thanks to goals from Craig Bussens and Kevin Hawes, with added time to play, when they scored twice, in the 90th and 95th minutes. Sam Clarke had been sent off with 30 minutes to play. We were holding runners-up Nuneaton Town 1-1 with Kevin Hawes getting our equaliser before we conceded two goals in the last ten minutes. Both performances were an indication of our gradual improvement over the season.

It is a big week for the club starting on Saturday with our last match of what has been an interesting season for us, with Marlow the visitors. King's Marsh Stadium will be graced by the presence of the maestro, Ossie Ardiles, of Argentina and Spurs and my favourite non-Manchester United player. It has been a feature of our end-of-season games for the last four seasons that a former top player appears and in the past they have always been very obliging and I am sure Ossie will be the same. We will also be holding our usual schools penalty shoot-out at half-time. In addition, our supporters are attempting to set a record as the noisiest non-League team, with Sound Research Limited measuring the noise level. There will also be a bit of a carnival atmosphere with a bouncy castle and face painting. The first 100 who turn up will receive a free air horn. Well done to the Supporters' Club and Great Waldingfield Garage for arranging this event.
