We caught up with manager Adam Flanagan before the trip to St Albans on Saturday, we discussed that match and some new additions to the squad…read on!

Looking back to last Saturday, how pleased were you with the performance against Eastbourne?

The Eastbourne result was pleasing as it was a horrible day with blustery and wet conditions.  It could have been easy to let these conditions affect us, but we put in a determined performance.  We scored some very good goals, and a couple were probably helped by the Eastbourne defence.  We could have added to the four goals we scored and we also restricted Eastbourne to a couple of chances in the second half when the wind was against us.

St Albans are bottom of the table, and we find ourselves on a good unbeaten run. Is it important to tell the boys not to get over-confident on Saturday?

As an overall I feel our most disappointing performances this season have been against teams down the bottom of the league, so we must not let Saturday go past without seizing a good opportunity.  We want the run we are on to keep going for as long as possible, and Saturday is the next opportunity for us to extend it.

Alex Osborn has been brought in on loan, what can he offer the squad?

Alex can play a various amount of positions and currently we are light on numbers for our attacking element.  Alex is someone who is very tenacious and can play on the left or up front.  I think Alex will fit in very well to the team and I’m excited to see how he does, and will add to the attacking threat that we already have in place.  It also means by having Alex around that if any of our forward players have any niggling injuries that we won’t be forced into having to play them.

Also Jack Lampe has returned, how pleased are you to see him back?

Jack is well thought of by everyone at the club, so it is great to have him back.  Jack was one of the players I was looking forward to seeing this season as I had heard very positive reports from people about him. I had been looking at other options after losing Adam Bailey-Dennis and at the same time Jack became available, so while he may be a few weeks away from full match fitness he can still play a part of this season and help us finish strongly.
