The Insider: Great squad key to title race

Firstly, I must start with an apology about the lack of blogs recently. The EDP24 web site has in the past few weeks received a major makeover and I wasn't able to post anything as a result of on going changes.

And, to be honest, I have been so busy with my full time work, which pays the bills by the way, and that has meant I have had to miss the trips to Rothwell and Irchester - which I am not overly happy with.

Still, work must come first and the football second but at times it's hard to think of it in that way. That is the reason as to the lack of coverage on BBC Radio last weekend. I see that someone has picked up on it on a forum and yes it is disappointing when we are only mentioned briefly on a Saturday but if I can't make it there usually isn't anyone else to fill my shoes, so to speak.

Yes, we are doing great this season but the reality is its step five football and the county of Norfolk is blessed with many teams at the same level. We all deserve a fair crack of the whip but unfortunately there are only so many people available on an afternoon to cover games so there are times when some have to miss out. However all of this should not distract from all of the work that Radio Norfolk put in covering football in King's Lynn. Many clubs in other parts of the country would give their right arm for the air time that we receive.

On pitch and things look to be going well. All that we can do is keep winning games and let everything else look after itself. St Neots are going very well, it has to be said, and the two games between us (whenever they are played) will, in my opinion decide the league title if both teams maintain their same form.

You may also want to watch:

Both sides are scoring for fun at the moment and we have tightened up at the back which means we are slowly improving our goal difference which may yet be vital at the end of the season. We have a great squad of players at The Walks who have now really gelled as a unit both on and off the pitch. The outstanding form of players such as Alex Street and Jamie Thurlbourne has been rewarded with contracts which shows that the club is slowly putting down some solid foundations for what is going to be a very long haul. Make no mistake on that front - it will be.

This Saturday sees the league action take a rest as Gorleston visit in the FA Vase. We have also had to move the league game in December with Cogenhoe to accommodate the league cup tie with Irchester. I must point out that we have to follow league instruction on these matters and it's not ourselves postponing league games for league cup fixtures.
