Matt's review of the week 6pts from 6

DSC 8613

It's been a great weeks work from the players and I cannot fault the players this week after an away trip to Guernsey and then a couple of days later home to the form side in the league (bar Cray) so another great three points. The attitude has been superb and the togetherness of the group as well as the quality we have in this squad has shone this week but it’s important we carry this into Sittingbourne away next week.

Jerson Dos Santos has made a massive impact on the squad and the results with his free kick on Saturday being as good as you'll see, and his performance in Guernsey was as good a center forward performance as you will see at this level.

I have to commend Drew Cooney, who hasn't been in the team for weeks after injury but has since shown his real value to the squad, and a lot of young players could take note of his attitude when he wasn’t in the team, and after getting fit and waiting his chance has grabbed it. We have now lost once in the last eight games and Drew has been a major factor in that and I think he’s relishing the attitude and ability of the young players he has around him at the moment.

Next weekend is massive for us now, as we have to follow up the good week last week with another big three points. It’s always a difficult pitch down at Sittingbourne so we shall pick a team and tactics to combat that. I have really been pleased with the work ethic of the group over this last week and it’s something we'll need to take into Saturday’s game.

We should welcome back Orlando Smith now from injury, in addition to new singing Lee Prescott, and Dan Pearse who is also available after missing Guernsey through work. That’s three big players that all have been playing Bostick premier football for the last couple of seasons.

Finally i would like to welcome back to the club, Ben Wilson who has featured in our last two games. Ben is someone I have worked with in the past for a number of years, and we got it wrong with him positionally when he was here at the start of the season, but we have had a chat and feel we have added an excellent player. Ben is a top lad off the pitch and has fitted into the group perfectly at a good time and I’m delighted to work with him again.

Thanks again for your support. The noise from behind the goal was again brilliant and long may that continue.

Hopefully we will see as many of you as possible there at Woodstock park on Saturday.
