Enter the Hawks Nest as we head onto our maiden National League voyage!!
Firstly Manager Lee Bradbury commented on Saturdays draw away at Hendon;
'We need to be going to those types of places and winning, I felt it was 2 points dropped, we need to get promoted out of this league and no dis respect to Hendon but we should be taking all 3 points especially after the early goal. We did more than enough to win, but we switched off for a short corner and let in a very soft goal. We need to take more of our chances, we had 3 or 4 good chances apart from Pato's goal and we need to be scoring at least one of them. If we had scored a second before half time, which we could have done, we would have been out of sight and gone on to win the game. All the time it's 1-0 the opposition have a chance, they grew in confidence in the 2nd half.....And we let them, that was the disappointing thing.'
Looking forward to the F A Trophy match at Westleigh Park this Saturday 12th November 3pm kick off, and the Away tie in Essex on Tuesday 15th November with a 19-45 kick off;
Billericay are on good form at the moment so it will a couple of tough matches, they are a big, strong hard working team, at home hopefully we can get the ball down and play our football, whereas up there their pitch is not renowned for being the best so it will be a tough battle. Craig has got them working hard for each other and they are a hard team to play against, we have to make sure we don't get bullied off the ball we have to be strong as a unit, as we always try to do. The F.A. Trophy is a very important competition for us and we won't be taking it lightly, a massive opportunity to get to Wembley, I said to the lads last week, you won't have too many chances to get to play at Wembley in 5 or 6 matches throughout your career, so lets try and do it. If we can get to Wembley it gives the players to play on probably the best stadium in the world and for me to manage there would be a dream come true.'
