ROGER Herridge has dropped a strong hint a continuation of Binfield's poor Hellenic League run could make him think whether he is the right man to take the club forward, writes Dave Wright.

The Moles lost 2-0 at home to table-topping Brimscombe & Thrupp on Saturday, which means they have now gone seven Premier Division games without a victory, picking up just two points along the way.

They did manage to win at Brimscombe last week, but that came after a penalty shoot-out in the Perpetua Press Floodlit Cup.

"To be honest, it's not much fun not picking up points," he said.

"It is hard and you can easily beat yourself up over it and think am I the man to turn it around and get us out of the rut we are in – I need to give that some thought.

"I am doing nothing different to what I was doing before Christmas when we were on a long unbeaten run and thinking we could push our way into the top six in this league."

Herridge continued: "As a manager, you go through some tough times, and we've had some bad runs before, but I am not enjoying it at the moment, that's for sure. It affects your life."

He revealed last Tuesday he left work at 4.20pm in order to pick up four players to go to the cup tie at Brimscombe and, after a game that went to extra time and penalties, he dropped the players off before getting home at 1am.

He added: "I do it for nothing, but the fact is, there are people putting question marks over you and all the rest of it.

"I put in a lot of time and effort and sometimes you might have to have a look at it and think do I know players who will come in and help us, or would a new manager have fresh contacts and help us, I don't know. We will see what the next week brings."

As for his team, he commented: "There are not a million things wrong with us, but there are certain areas where we need to improve."

Herridge was left disappointed when Will Shaw left the Moles last week to join Combined Counties League Division One side Eversley & California.
