Sevenoaks Town boss: "I'm not pleased - we should have done better"

At the beginning of the season, Sevenoaks Town saw a fresh challenge when the club returned to the Go Travel Kent League after an absence of a century.

Sevenoaks Town have recently made considerable improvements to their ground at Greatness Park, including changing rooms and floodlights.

So as they completed their campaign in the Go Travel Kent League Premier Division, with two 1-0 defeats at the hands of local rivals Tunbridge Wells in the space of twelve days, manager Graham Logsdon admitted his side could have done a lot better in their debut season back in the league, writes Stephen McCartney.

Sevenoaks finished the season in eleventh position in a seventeen team table, with 37 points from 32 games, and went through the season drawing only once.

Logsdon admitted: "I'm not pleased from our own playing point of view because I felt we could have and should have done a lot better.  I think we have let ourselves down badly at times."

The manager was very disappointed after losing 1-0 at Tunbridge Wells on Saturday, a game the Greatness Park side squandered many chances and should have won.

Logsdon added: "We should have won both games against Tunbridge Wells, to be honest with you.  The amount of chances would have panned out three or four nil.  As far as I'm concerned, the goal that was given here today was an absolute disgrace!  Our goalkeeper clearly had the ball in his hands, but there you go!  These decisions go against you sometimes, it's just very disappointing."

"Today's game should have been out of sight - I though we should have had three or four goals before they had a sniff at it.  So overall, it's been a new venture, one we have got to improve on for next season, that's for sure!" said the manager.

The Sevenoaks manager will be looking to bolster his squad for the new campaign.  He revealed: "Obviously I have a few names on the pad and we have got to strengthen for sure.  I am going to take a couple of days to get over this defeat.

"Football can be a very cruel game.  I put it down to three clear cut chances.  That's been the story of our season to be honest with you.  We just haven't had that clinical finish when we needed it.  It's a difference between three or no points.", the manager pointed out.
