Everything is going to plan at Woodbridge Town, but boss Jamie Scales insists his side can’t afford to take their foot off the gas as they bid to secure a league and cup double.
Woodbridge are three points clear at the top of the Thurlow Nunn First Division having dropped just nine points all season, losing only once, while their 5-2 victory at Bramford last weekend has moved them into the last four of the Suffolk Senior Cup.
The success has been based on consistency, with few changes made to the playing squad in recent years and players buying into the club’s approach, and Scales is delighted their plan is paying off.
“You can’t fault our effort so far and we’re getting our rewards,” Scales said.
“We’ve been striving to do this for the last couple of seasons and and push on, and this year the lads are really putting in a shift and doing it week in, week out.

“We haven’t really changed the squad that much over the last couple of seasons. The ability has been there, we have great togetherness and the whole club is united together.
“Everyone has bought into our style of play, the way we train and set things up and that’s helped everyone go out there on a Saturday and perform as we expect them to do. You put the effort in and the workrate is second to none, but the way we pass and move and close things down is a good lesson for any youngster watching football.”

This weekend sees the leaders travel to mid-table Holland FC, with Scales insisting his side can’t afford to take things easy despite their lofty position.
“On paper we should be winning the game because we have double the points they have, but the standard of this league has got so much better over the last two years and you can’t take anything for granted,” he said.
“You can’t take your foot off the pedal, because we’ve only dropped nine points all season but are still in a little pack - it’s not like we’ve pulled away - so we just need to carry on going about our business and keep our focus.
“We have been getting some brilliant crowds this season, averaging about 110, so we are doing this for all those who support us, too because people are coming to watch us from the town and from further away too.”
