This Saturday we take on Carshalton Athletic at home in what promises to be the game of the day across the entire division between the teams lying third and fourth.
Like us, the Robins – ahead of us only on goal difference — are unbeaten in all competitions with both teams on 14 points.
Last Saturday they thumped Kingstonian 4-0 in the FA Cup and in the league have scored 15 goals in their six games.
Whilst they have only won once on the road, they drew 1-1 at Hornchurch and 3-3 at Bognor and are likely to provide stiff opposition as we bid to maintain our own excellent start to the season.
“They will be very dangerous opposition, the toughest test by far that we’ve had,” said Gavin Macpherson. “We will need to be very competitive.”
Not only is this Saturday a proverbial six-pointer but it co-incides with Whole Club Day, a very special annual occasion bringing together all sections of the club including men’s, ladies, youth and disability.
Feel free to invite all your friends and work colleagues to what should be a memorable day for everybody – and hopefully three points!
Gavin has seriously bought into the concept which allies totally with his own philosophy.
“It’s hugely important to have a connection between the first-team players and management and the rest of the football club,” Gavin said.
“All these people are the soul of our club and need something to aim for. There has to be a connection in respect of a pathway running through the academy and the under-18s. All the coaching team are invested in the idea.”
