BRACKNELL Town have made a better start to their Bostik League campaign than they had expected, writes Dave Wright.

Head coach Geoff Warner revealed they had targeted seven points from their opening three fixtures, but the Robins collected the maximum nine following their 6-0 trouncing of FC Romania at Larges Lane on Saturday.

“We are already two points ahead of our target, so it’s been a great start,” said Warner.

“This week we will be sitting down and working out what we feel we can achieve in September.

“That is how we are trying to do things, how many points we need each month.”

Warner, along with fellow coaches Gavin Smith and Michael Butcher and player-manager Carl Davies, are undoubtedly pleased with the progress being made by the Robins.

They were far too strong for Essex-based Romania, scoring three goals in quick succession late in the first half and three more in the second, with Liam Ferdinand netting a hat-trick.

“Ferdy was very good once again,” said Warner.

“The whole team played well especially in the last 15 minutes of the first half and they also started the second half well.

“The worrying thing is when you are 3-0 up at half-time you can go into the changing room and relax and switch off, but that didn’t happen, which was pleasing.

“It also gave us a chance to send on lads like Josh Helmore and Gavin James.

“Our back four looked really tight after the first 15 minutes. Their left winger looked very dangerous, but once we got to grips with him we were okay.”

Bracknell, the only team with a 100-per-cent record, top the South Central Division ahead of their trip to Reigate this Saturday to take on South Park (3pm).
