Jenkins wants more cup success


Ian Jenkins is looking forward to this Saturday's FA Trophy home game against Staines Town after an ominous October in Ryman Division One, reports www.bromleytimes.co.uk

The Wands were by no means magical last month with a six-game losing streak, but Jenkins has masterminded a mini-revival and is excited about the upcoming cup clash.

He said: "We are all looking forward to it. We've done well in the cups this year and I cannot see why we won't go and beat Staines Town on Saturday.

"It's good to go into the game with a bit of confidence and it's nice to turn it around."

On last Saturday's 2-2 draw with Bashley, Jenkins felt his side could have put the game beyond the visitors in the opening 45 minutes.

He said: "We had three or four good chances to win it comfortably in the first half, but their goalkeeper had a decent game. Then, in the second half, we gave away two soft goals.

"We should have had three points out of it, but our recent run has not been that good in the league, so I'll take a point at the moment."

Cray had the majority of scoring chances in an end-to-end attacking game, but could not capitalise and even missed a penalty-kick when Michael Power hit the bar but two goals from striker Jon Main, whose now netted nine goals this season,earned them a point.

But their Westview Cup hopes were dashed losing 5-3 (after extra time) at Leatherhead on Tuesday night. Goalscorers were Leigh Bremner, Gary Abbott and David Hall.
