Manager's Notes with Mark Burke

Friday, November 10 2017


We got off to a flying start against Weymouth on Saturday. In the first 25 minutes we played some of our best football all season and deservedly took the lead. However we did not capitalise on the chances we created† and as the game wore on Weymouth got a foothold in the game. They scored with a very good strike that gave Michael Johnson no chance and he injured himself trying to save it.

We came out for the second half at a good tempo and repeated the way we played in the first half. We got on top and scored two goals to give us a cushion. I felt we managed the remainder of the game very well and while Weymouth had a good amount of possession I did not feel they looked like hurting us.

This was an excellent result against a very good team and it set us up nicely for the next two cup games. The three points were also important as other teams have games in hand of us and quite a few are playing tomorrow and midweek.


This game gave me the opportunity to give a number of players desperately needed game time. All five substitutes from the Weymouth game started at Kings Langley. I quite expected us to look rusty† because of this and our early tempo was not what was needed. Conditions were difficult playing against the wind in the first half but we definitely grew in to the game. Young keeper George Phillips turned in a really good performance considering he met the team for the first time in the dressing room before the game.

The second half saw us play some good football and score four goals. It was good to keep the unbeaten run going and I now have real competition for places. I look forward to our game in the last 16 of the BigFreeBet Cup.


Chesham are in a good run of form and are unbeaten for eight games. I have had them watched and the scouting reports have made it clear we are in for a difficult game. Indeed Chesham is always a difficult place to get a result. I will be happy to return to top Field unbeaten.

With £4,000 prize money at stake this F A Trophy game takes on great importance. I urge as many of our loyal supporters as possible† to make the trip to Chesham and get behind the team. Your support really does make a difference and is always appreciated by the players and management.
