Heritage told Sports Shots;
What were your immediate thoughts on the 2-0 win over Biggleswade United last Saturday?
I thought the boys were excellent from front to back, allowed them no time to settle on the ball and ultimately made a good team look very ordinary. We always knew it was going to be a difficult encounter, but our young lads stood up well to the physicality of the game, we stuck to our game plan and totally outclassed them on the day, hopefully this will be the start of a very successful winning run.
How have you felt the season has gone so far?
The progress we have made has been exceptional. For a small-town development side to be competing with some of the teams in what is a very challenging league is impressive. The quality we have in the side is the best I have seen at Winslow for many years. We must make sure we continue to grow on and off the field and start climbing that league table.
Have you set yourself any short or long-term goals?
My focus is to keep consistently playing well and improve my all-round game. Obviously being a development player, the long-term goal always has to be to strive to become an established first team player. As a team we want to win the bottom half of the league and to finish as the top ranked Buckinghamshire side.
What are your thoughts as we enter a game against Berkhamsted FC?
You only have to look at their league position to realize this is going to be an extremely tough game against a side in the top 6 but we want to prove that we can compete with these teams and the management will have done their homework and have a plan for this game and it is up to us to execute that plan.
Farrow told Sports Shots;
What were your thoughts following Saturdays 2-0 victory over Biggleswade?
The boys, the management and the club were absolutely buzzing after the performance last week. We said before the game that we have been threatening to put together a complete performance in the last few games, and from start to finish we certainly provided that!
It was a very physical game, but I think our fitness, 2/3 touch football and some fantastic finishing certainly saw us run out the worthy winners!
How is morale within the squad?
Our tails are up and the confidence throughout the team is sky high. We are all looking forward to playing another home league fixture this weekend as we attempt to make that 5 wins on the bounce at home and really begin to make the gate a tough place for teams to come!
How is the squad shaping up for the weekend?
Our squad is looking very strong again for tomorrow. Training was very well attended again this week and the level of commitment is improving week by week.
Mine and Marks task is extremely difficult as we have had to let some quality players down this Saturday. Phone calls I wish we didn’t have to have and not a nice part of the job. But, that’s how strong our squad is! We are building a very strong atmosphere and although players have had to be let down this week, they know they are still in our plans and will be back in the squad next week.
What are your thoughts going into the game against Berkhamsted FC?
With 4 home wins on the bounce our confidence is sky high but we know we have a massive challenge ahead of us against an in form and top 6 side in Berko but we have done our homework on them and have a plan for the game and with a very decent training session behind us we have every reason to be excited by this challenge.
These are the sorts of games I look forward to as a player and a manager and I know the lads are really looking forward to the game.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I just want to say a massive thank you to sports shots for attending our B&B cup tie. The pictures were brilliant, and the local support is fantastic! Everyone is enjoying the coverage.
