SSMFL D1: Coles looking for Winslow to bounce back as Lions visit + Flooring flying!

Sports Shots caught up with Winslow United’s Sean Coles after the forward’s brace earned his side a point at Risborough Rangers last weekend.

Sean Coles

United had been 1-3 down before Coles late equaliser after a Ryan Freshwater penalty earned Paul Alleyne’s side a share of the spoils.

Coles commented:

It was good to come away with a point, being 3-1 down, and having 10 men. The team dug deep and managed to grab a point and we didn’t give up.

United return to Elmfields gate tomorrow for a league encounter.

London Lions will be a tough game, they are a good footballing side but on our day we can beat anyone.

Coles and his team mates have been working hard ahead of the game.

We have been in training because our recent performances haven’t been good enough, so we need to put that right on Saturday.

As well as United fighting at the top, Coles also has some big games on the horizon with Aylesbury Flooring.

Our (Winslow) main focus is the league, but it is always good to win a cup.

My next three games for Flooring are massive and we have a good side going into the games and we are flying.

SSMFL D1: AK firing on all fronts for success; Winslow league & cup + Floor on fire!

Alex Kedzierski has spoken with Sports Shots as he fires on all fronts with Winslow United and Aylesbury Flooring.

Alex Kedzierski

The highly-talented midfielder spoke of his season, thus far, firstly of last weekend’s disappointing defeat at Harefield United for the Elmfields gate-based outfit.

Saturday was disappointing. The score line didn’t reflect the game. We were in control, had plenty of chances to finish the game off which we didn’t and it cost us. It’s the same every week we create so many chances and take them. This week we just couldn’t score. They scored off a mistake and it got there spirits up we was always on the back foot from there and need to make sure we bounce back and learn from it. As the best teams who win leagues can win 1-0 and see a game out. We need to be better as this league is ours to lose.

But morale in camp is good especially after the last week we’ve had. Was disappointing to drop the points but we’ll be straight back at it this week to put it right. We’ve been flying. So Saturday we have to get back to it. We’ve beaten them twice already, comfortably, so I don’t see why Saturday will be any different. We just need to take our chances and get back to winning ways.

We take every game as it comes. We know teams are more worried about playing us than we are about them. We still have a quarter-final to play so, hopefully, we can go all the way in that also.

Last Sunday, Aylesbury Flooring, Kedzierski’s Sunday side, recorded a 7-0 win at Leighton Madrid in the FA Sunday Cup.

FASC; Leighton Madrid 0-7 Aylesbury Flooring FC

Reflecting on last week, Kedzierski explained.

Sunday with Aylesbury Flooring was a massive win for us.

It’s such a good buzz. We’ve got a good team and don’t see why we’d can’t go all the way. We don’t know much about the other team but we are not worried. We know we’re good enough to beat anyone. We’re confident. It’s a good experience also to get a coach up and travel away.

We’re all looking forward to it very much.

The game at Jacks in Wolverhampton will take place on Sunday 20th January, 1pm.
