Season One: October
Another month played, another run of unbeaten games played. Five wins and a draw from six games brings our unbeaten run of games to thirteen in all competitions, and ten in the league. This is an absolutely phenomenal feat for a club of our stature and I am very proud of my players for accomplishing this. If there would be one criticism which I have for me team, it would be the number of goals we conceded after going three goals ahead. We were 3-0 up against Basingstoke, Wingate & Finchley and Biggleswade Town yet we allowed these three teams to come back in to the games, with Basingstoke even going as far as equalising and snatching a point from our grasps. We need to get rid of this sense of complacency but otherwise, I have no complaints.
Player Of The Month
is my player of the month after what was a terrific set of performances from the English attacker. He has been deployed in a number of positions, including left wing, right wing and in his favoured striker role. No matter where he has played, he has been lively, creative and lethal in front of goal. He has been one of my favourite players to work with so far and a real driving force behind our title push.

Vanarama Conference South
We now top the league by a staggering eleven points! While other teams to have games in hand over us, they are still a fair distance away from us and we have what is turning in to a very comfortable lead for us. Hopefully we can continue to improve and keep increasing the size of our lead. Our goalscoring record has been superior to anybody else's in the league and our defensive record is slowly, but surely, improving too.
November will bring us another set of six games and it will prove to be a very difficult month for us. We start off with a home game against Havant & Waterlooville in the league before travelling to Datrford (Vanarama Conference Premier) for the first round of the FA Cup, where we are expected to lose. League games against Saint Albans, Chelmsford and Weston-super-mare come before we play Havant yet again, but this time at their place in the FA Trophy. My points target is seven for this season and I am hoping that we progress in either one of the cups. We are not expected to win in either but anything can happen in football!
