Winslow United’s Mitchell Collins has spoken to Sports Shots as his side prepare to play host to Codicote on Saturday (21st October).
The United left-back has impressed this season with some high-energy performances in giving Winslow a presence in the opposition half for the full 90 minutes.
Tomorrow Codicote visit the gate with former Burnley, Stoke City and Watford striker Gifton Noel-Williams in charge.

Collins reflected on United’s week after their 4-1 local derby win at Buckingham Town in the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy.
We have just had a normal week, everyone training and focusing for our next game. I felt the derby game went very well, we were very dominant throughout most the game and over came any problem that they gave us. It’s always best to win a derby game.
Both Collins and United have started the campaign brightly.
The season is going well for both myself and the team. I’ve been converted from a forward player to a left back, which is going very well for myself and I think the team, technically and physically, we are a match for the league. I also think since the first few games we played, we have become stronger and performing better.
I’m enjoying this campaign a lot. Being with some of the players I played with last year and playing back with a manager I’ve played under before. I think this campaign could be a good one
Next up is tomorrow’s league visit by Codicote.
I don’t know much about them. I know we faced them in the cup and came out 6-0 winners though this was due to a sending off in the early minutes of the game. They are a good passing team like a lot of teams in the league so will be a good battle.
Finally, Collins had to be asked about ‘that goal’ which was well received by social media.

I’ve had a good reaction to that goal. It seems popular to people so I’m hoping to score a few more this campaign and hopefully another one like that.
