BRACKNELL Town completed an excellent Hellenic League double over fellow top-four side Flackwell Heath by winning 3-1 at Wilks Park on Saturday – and the new management team are confident performances can get even better, writes Dave Wright.

“There is definitely more to come,” said joint manager Paul McGrotty, whose side were following up last Tuesday’s 6-0 victory over Southern League club Aylesbury in the first round of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup.

“We have come in and not tried to change much because they are a side that finished second in the league last season, so you can’t change this group too much.

“But we are looking to improve on certain areas by bolstering the squad a little bit, and we hope to confirm two or three new signings in the next week or so.”

TJ Bohane, the club’s leading scorer last season, is expected to be their main target.

He has already signed on a dual registration with Swindon Supermarine and scored on his first appearance of the season against Aylesbury, but on Saturday he played and scored for the Evo-Stik League side in their home defeat by Taunton.

“I hope there will be some movement with him this week so we will see him a bit more regular,” said McGrotty.

McGrotty and Jeff Lamb have brought in two players they knew from their Ascot days – Daryl McLean, who was an unused substitute at Flackwell, and Colin Mugoya.

“Daryl on his day can be a match-winner, but we need to get him fit, while Colin is more of a back-up one at the moment,” said McGrotty.

He was delighted with the three points at Wilks Park, adding: “We went there knowing it was going to a big game for us as Flackwell are always going to be high in the table, so this was a great result for us.”

Robins, who had beaten the Heathens 3-2 at home last month, were forced to make an early change when new centre back Justin Clayton pulled up with hamstring trouble in the opening five minutes of Saturday’s game.

“That was a really big loss because he was superb for us last Tuesday,” commented McGrotty. “We are not doing to well with injuries at the moment”

“But credit to Damien (substitute Smith), he went on and what he did was brilliant.”

Bracknell were also close to being forced to take off dangerous winger Seb Bowerman who sustained a cut close to his eye following a challenge.

“It looked an elbow to me, but the ref said he didn’t see it,” added McGrotty.

“I thought we would have to make another change, but luckily he was able to stay and get on with it, and deserved to be on the winning side. Seb was brilliant in the first half, unplayable.

“We always looked dangerous going forward and in the second half I thought we controlled the game better than we had done in the first. We are all happy with the three points.”

Bracknell host Buckingham Athletic in the FA Vase first round at Larges Lane on Saturday (3pm).

They are currently seventh in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One with 17 points from nine games.

“The support we are getting at the moment is fantastic, but if we can get a Vase run going it would create even more excitement around the town. That would be great,” concluded McGrotty.
