CHAIRMAN'S REPORT

Nick on bad luck and Wycombe appeal

I was pleased to see us score our first home goals of the season on Saturday, and picking up a point will hopefully halt our bad run and get things back on the right track.

It was a shame we could not take all three points, but I believe a draw can be the building block for us to get things moving in the right direction.

It was great to see two of our summer recruits scoring their first goals for the club, and Fabian looks like he is set to be a real fan’s favourite! 

I was really disappointed with the decision by the Football League to dismiss our appeal about the abandonment of the Wycombe game.

I feel it gives Wycombe a clear advantage, as we wipe the slate clean and start again. I would have restarted the game on 66 minutes, which would have been fair to both parties.

However, now we must use this sense of injustice to motivate ourselves in the rematch and ensure the result goes in our favour.

It was also a massive blow to discover that Cian Bolger’s injury was more serious than we first thought, with the defender set to be out for around three months.

We have seen over the last year how influential Cian is at the back, and it is hugely disappointing for us to lose him for a large portion of his loan spell.

I really feel for him as well, as a young player it must be really hard to sit on the sidelines for so long.

At the moment it really seems like we are suffering a run of bad luck, so let’s hope it ends soon.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the fans who came to the Aldershot game last weekend.

I know the manager has already mentioned it, but I just want to reiterate how fantastic your support was.

It has been a tough start for us at home, and it would have been very easy for you all to get on the player’s backs when we went behind, but you stayed positive, and I believe your encouragement helped us to get back in the game.

That is why I believe that if we all stick together it will not be long before our fortunes start to change.

Next up we have two difficult games away from home, so it is going to be a tough ask for the team. However it might be just what we need to galvanise the team and kick start our season.
