Matt's Update - FA Trophy, League and Players

Matt Longhurst

FA Trophy weekend is here and here is what the gaffer has to say after another good away point Tuesday night.

I'll start by saying Tuesday was another big plus for me as we went behind and managed to get a good point away from home at a place that’s difficult to go to , I thought first half we where poor and we made a change at half time and in the second half we made a better game of it and could of won with Karn’s free kick possibly being over the line but you win some you lose some .

Frustrating is a word I would use with Michael Wilson leaving today for Burgess Hill it’s not a move I think he should of made and I made my feelings clear to him that we wanted him to stay and made every effort to keep him but when a player wants to leave the club ultimately that’s what he ll do and he goes with our best wishes for the rest of his career.

That being said football moves on and it opens the door for someone else we have Ryan Johnson back from suspension now and Leo back from injury and have brought in exciting forward Jayden Antwi so it’s all a plus for us in my opinion.  We have options in midfield with Leo, Mitch, Steve Sargent, Jack Bray and Freddie plus Orlando who can play there. Callum and RJ can also play in midfield so there’s no need to sign anyone in that area .

We have a big game this weekend and I’m confident that the squad of players we have is capable of going to Great Wakering and winnning. We are on a good run and it’s a chance to take a break from the league games and progress like we did in The FA cup .

Enjoy the game Matt
