FELIXSTOWE and Walton United manager Glen Driver today stressed that it will take a magnificent performance from his side to maintain their fine record against Ridgeons League Premier Division leaders CRC.

The Seasiders have never lost a top division game against the Cambridge-based youngsters, and Driver looks back on last season's 1-0 victory at the Abbey Stadium as the best result of his managerial career.

“I've gained some good results at Leiston and then at Felixstowe,” said Driver.

Driver played for Needham Market and they along with Leiston will be hoping that Felixstowe can put a dampener on CRC's charge to the title.

Matt Stace has moved to AFC Sudbury, Gavin Frost to Woodbridge Town and Sheridan Driver returned to the States, and Driver says that he may have to release more players.

“I'll possibly have to let one or two players go,” explained Driver, whose side is punching above its weight compared to the player budgets of many of their rivals.

“We are trying to build for next season, but if I'm still in charge or not the club will be in a better position than it was when I took over.”

Woodbridge gained their first home point of the season against Norwich United last weekend, but face punishment having been officially charged with fielding two ineligible players in their 5-1 win at Felixstowe on January 2.
