Blue Square Bet North
Well what a start to the season. First month or so goals were hard to come by but we were not concecding either. That led to a few indifferent results but a victory over FC Halifax who were top sent us into the FA Cup trip to BSBP side Bromley with hope.
A stupid week with six injuries meant a change from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 and a close 1-0 defeat ends our FA Cup run.
I know full well the only reason i am still in charge at the club is down to our FA Trophy win last season and following the cup defeat the media claim nothing less than a win away to Eastwood would seal my fate. A 3-0 defeat had me clearing my desk but i survived that.
The next week i dodged another bullet despite a 3-2 home defeat to Hinkley that leaves us 12th.
A trip to Colwyn Bay brought a third straight media story about my future but this time we win. And win well, 4-0. That starts a run of four straight league wins without conceding including a win at home to leaders Boston. In that time we win a replay away to Eastwood, after being 2-0 down, to make the next round of the FA Trophy.
At the end of October i was amazed to still be in charge at Abbey Stadium but by 1st December i pick up my first manager award
Along with that a decent month for two of my players also
Maybe, just maybe the tide has turned. Still down in 8th but just six points from the top and in great form.
