“We have made a great deal of progress in the last few months,” he said. “But we must learn to defend from the front and not lose concentration against the better sides.

“Leiston looked an exceptional side when they scored five goals against us last Saturday. And Dereham will be just as dangerous.”

“Our brief from the chairman was to keep Felixstowe in the Premier Division,” added Kinsella. “Glen has done very well and we are confident we can reach the objectives.

“In the summer I will sit down with the chairman and see if we are singing from the same hymn sheet. There is no commitment beyond the summer although I know that Glen would like to take Felixstowe forward.”
