STEVE CAWLEY wants to cap his best-ever season with two shiny cups.
The 24-year-old striker (pictured above) has set-up 18 goals so far this season and is Concord’s top scorer with 15.
The former Bishop’s Stortford man has always had an eye for goal and top-scored with Waltham Abbey in Ryman One North three seasons ago. But he says a Golden Boot with Vanarama South Rangers would be extra special.
And ahead of crucial games with play-off chasing rivals Eastbourne and Hemel Hempstead over the Easter weekend, Cawley admitted the Essex Senior Cup finalists are determined to end their campaign in style.
He said: “Stats wise it is already my best-ever season but I’d like to get up to about 18 goals and 20 assists.
“In terms of performances it has been a very good year for me and a big part of that is because I just love it here at Concord and the atmosphere.
“And now we have a chance to do something special and we would love to end the season with a cup and by winning the play-offs.”
Concord start the weekend seventh in the division and a point outside the play-offs. The island club go to tenth-placed Eastbourne on Saturday and entertain eighth-placed Hemel on Monday.
And when asked what would be a good points return, Cawley shot back: “Six! But four would be good because Eastbourne have won their last four and not conceded and Hemel are a very good side with some very good players.
“We were not looking past the games with our last two games with Havant and Ebbsfleet and we managed to win both of those – but now we are not looking beyond these two games.”
Cawley is being chased by Lewis Taaffe with 13 goals and Tony Stokes with 10 for Concord’s Golden Boot, but he revealed there is one goal in particular this season he will not forget.
He explained: “I lobbed the keeper from the half-way line when we beat Winchester in the FA Cup in October.
“It was probably one of the best goals I have ever scored but our guy who does the match videos, Andy Smith, missed it! So cheers mate! But I like to chip the keepers so perhaps I’ll get another one like that.”
