Stunning start to campaign continues

After the summer of turmoil we could not have dreamed of such a good start to the season and in such style.

After the summer of turmoil we could not have dreamed of such a good start to the season and in such style.

The six points that we collected over the Bank Holiday weekend has put us into 2nd place in the league and we also picked up a point in last week's draw. Last Tuesday's game showed that, although the players are still getting to know each other, a good spirit has developed as, having lost the lead, they fought back against Aylesbury United with our goals coming from James Rowe. Match sponsors Specsavers Man of the Match was Curtis Haynes-Brown.

Last Saturday our performance was, in my view, the best I have seen for ages with Sutton Coldfield fully taking their part in an entertaining game. Certainly, if that display is repeated over the next few weeks and months then, not only will we maintain our high league position, but more supporters will come and enjoy their football. James Rowe, who was match sponsors Great Waldingfield Garage Man of the Match and Captain Gareth Heath seemed to have formed an even better partnership than last season with both of them scoring goals in a 2 - 0 win.

Monday saw us visit Arlesey who like us moved across leagues and they gave us a good test, which we passed. We went behind in the first half, against the run of play, but three second-half goals from Rowe, Heath and Luke Hammond, the latter two direct from free kicks, saw us take home the points. Our supporters throughout this game were in good voice.

Saturday's encounter at home against Lowestoft Town in the FA Cup is going to be a difficult encounter and is followed a week later by another home game against Woodford United.

It was a bittersweet start for the reserves as they went to Witham Town on Saturday and won 0-6 but I understand that, in the process, young Paul Walker, in his first competitive game for us, badly broke his leg. The club wishes him a speedy recovery. They are away on Saturday to Brantham Athletic.
