Bourne Town boss proud of players

Bourne Town v Bugbrooke St Michaels

Bourne Town manager Steve Wilson described his pleasant dilemma in picking a Wakes team full of confidence and commitment to make this season a memorable one.

Despite their untroubled 3-0 win over Bugbrooke St Michaels, the Abbey Lawn side are still fifth – two points behind Potton United and having played a game more in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League’s Division One.

It was a bit frustrating not to score, but it’s a team game and I was happy with the two assists.

Wilson admitted: “We’ve probably had a lack of consistency in our game so we wanted to kick on by getting some wins.

“The first goal was typical of what we’re about and throughout the game we didn’t look in any trouble.

“At half-time, one or two lads were looking a bit anxious but it was just a case of keeping our patience and the chances would come.

“They are a great bunch of lads to work with because they come in and work hard, week in and week out.

“It’s hard to pick the team now because they all deserve to be there.”

Even though he didn’t score on Saturday, Wakes striker Zak Munton has been grabbing the headlines with his clinical touch in front of goal and the speed with which he is learning his trade.

Munton said: “It was a bit frustrating not to score, but it’s a team game and I was happy with the two assists.

“Bugbrooke sat quite deep as they saw what we were trying to do but we just had to use the wind to our advantage in the second half and get behind them which helped.”

With just three games of the season left, all at home, Munton was pessimistic about getting to the 30-goal mark.

He added: “It’s a bit of an ask to score 30 goals this season but 25 goals would be decent considering that I wasn’t playing in the first team at the start of the season.

“I’m getting more goals because I’m gaining more knowledge of the game and how to play against defenders who are bigger than me.”
