Heathens Can Feature In Promotion Race - 22 December

marcus glenroy richardson football hellenic leagueHaving guided his team to 10 games unbeaten in all competitions, Marcus Richardson doesn’t see any reason why Flackwell Heath can’t haul themselves back into the promotion picture. Writes Daniel Darlington in the Windsor & Eton Express

After what he called a ‘topsy-turvy’ start to the campaign, which saw many players come and go, Richardson says the squad are now ‘buying into’ his philosophy, with the team up to seventh in the table. They haven’t played since their 2-0 win at Holmer Green on December 8 after their Floodlit Cup match at Kidlington Development fell foul of the weather on Monday night. They travel to Brimscombe & Thrupp today. They then host Royal Wootton Bassett Town a week on Saturday.

“We’re on a good unbeaten run,” said Richardson (pictured left). “The players have been doing well and are buying into what we’re doing here. I couldn’t ask for any more from them. But the players have to have faith in themselves. If we put a decent run together we won’t be too far away. Look at Ascot United, after a poor spell they’ve managed to find some form again and are now top of the table.“If everyone was to win their games in hand there would probably only be about six points separating top place from 10th.”

The Heathens also now have a date in the diary for their mouth-watering Berks & Bucks Senior Cup clash with Reading FC u23s at Wilks Park on Tuesday, January 22. “It’s a good test for my players, who’re mostly u23s themselves,” added Richardson. “Their (Reading) scouts or coaches might see someone they like, who they think could improve their squad, so it’s a massive opportunity for these boys.”
