BRACKNELL Town’s new management team got off to a dream start on Saturday with a 5-0 victory over Oxford City Nomads at Larges Lane, writes Dave Wright.

“It was a great start, better than we had imagined,” said joint manager Jeff Lamb.

He took over last week following the departure of Mark Tallentire, bringing with him his former Ascot United joint manager Paul McGrotty and coach Derek Sweetman.

“Obviously, we are all delighted to be here,” said Lamb.

“We intend to have the same beliefs we had at Ascot and our ambition is to take this team up.”

The trio enjoyed plenty of success with the Yellamen before losing several key players to Bracknell, but they left Ascot in early January and had not been involved in football until Bracknell came knocking.

Lamb commented: “After nine months out I was itching to get back involved and when this opportunity came up it was a no-brainer for me.

“We have come to a club where there are a lot of good players in the squad, but we do want to add a couple.”

Terence Bohane, who was Town’s leading scorer last season with 46 goals, is set to return from Swindon Supermarine.

It is initially on dual-registration forms, but as Bracknell can offer him a regular game unlike the Southern League club, it could well lead to a permanent transfer.

“Everyone in the Hellenic (League) knows TJ and what he’s about, so we would love to get him back here,” said Lamb, who has also added former Ascot centre-back Justin Clayton to his squad following a time out injured.
