(Continued...) We’ve had loads of interest in him, of course, because he’s been the best striker in the history of the Conference South. I know he’s a good player, but I want to see what his make-up is all about. He scored 35 goals last season, 30 the season before, and 28 before that: we all know he can do that again this season, and we hope he’ll do it for us.

I was disappointed in the week by certain things I’d heard from certain individuals. What a joke. No league is won or lost in September. Every season has a start, a middle and an end. We’re only at the start. There’s ages to go yet, and we’re four points off the play-offs. Any side in this division gets a little run going and they shoot up the table: just look at Salisbury, who’ve won four and they’re right at the top. This is the time when we need everyone to pull together. The players, the management, the fans. My players did it for me on Saturday. They gave everything they’d got. At the end they were out on their feet. It was a massive step in the right direction.

The FA Cup First Qualifying draw was made on Monday and we got Hendon away. They’ve not made the best start in the Isthmian Premier, the league below us, with just two points so far. I watched them play two weeks ago against Horsham and they got beat 4-1. They’ve got some good players, though, and it’s not going to be easy. We’ll treat them with the utmost respect. There are three games to go before the first round proper when all the pro clubs come in. A run would be nice for everyone at the club.

Next game: Saturday September 25th. Sutton (away)
