Watch: Carl Withers on the FA Cup and start to the season

I’m sure most have been enjoying the recent sunshine and the welcome break from football, however for this club so much hard work has been going on behind the scenes improving the ground and we can honestly say it’s never looked better and hope many of you can come along over the course of the season and see for yourselves.

For any manager, reflection is always needed at the end of any season and for us coming off the back of our first season at step 4 finishing 8th would please most, but for us there were a number of games that we felt could and should have gone our way thus pushing us closer to a playoff position, but at times maybe our squad depth let us down and left us thinking what if.  This year we knew we had to improve this, and we believe we have done exactly that bringing in several exciting players, who will add to the incredible foundation that we already have at this football club.

I think we’d both be lying if we said we weren’t happy with the start to our campaign this season, 4 points from 6 in the league, and being in the next round of the FA Cup, which following the draw Monday has provided the club with a fantastic local derby in a week’s time against near neighbours Holyport and one the club, players and staff can all look forward to.  In terms of the league and our bread and butter we find ourselves with a number of tough fixtures over the coming weeks, but we will look forward to these and continue to build on a recent success.
