We’ll surprise some teams this year but for me winning the league with our resources, it will be tough but we’ll give it a go, vows Glebe boss Anwar Uddin
GLEBE manager Anwar Uddin says he wants to improve on last season’s top 12 finish in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division.
The Chislehurst based outfit rose to the summit on Monday night after coming away from Erith Town with a 1-1 draw, after beating Tunbridge Wells 3-1 at Foxbury Avenue at the weekend.
Glebe slipped to second after last nights results as Chatham Town met their title credentials with back-to-back wins over Corinthian (4-1) and Canterbury City (5-2).
“To me, it’s just improving on last year,” said Uddin.
“We came up into this division last year and although we finished strong, it was a year of transition and change so this year is all improving on last year, playing a good brand of football and just being hard to beat.
“I think we’ve got some really, really good players and players who will improve so we’ll surprise some teams this year but for me winning the league with our resources, it will be tough but we’ll give it a go.”
Glebe travel to AFC Uckfield Town on Saturday in The Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round, with £2,250 going to the winner and £750 for the loser.
“It will be a tough, tough game. I know they lost 4-3 at the weekend but I know some of their players from my stint at Eastbourne Borough,” said Uddin.
“I know they’ve recruited well this year and they’re at home. It’s The FA Cup so it’s going to be a great little game.
“I know when we’re at our game, we’re going to win. We weren’t at Erith but we still remain unbeaten so I’m happy with that.
“I’m looking forward to Saturday, we’re second in the league at the moment, four points, unbeaten but The FA Cup, anything can happen. I always think about the amazing runs that you could possibly have and it all starts Saturday, so I’m excited.”
