Treble hopes are still alive for Burnham Ramblers
3:40pm Thursday 28th February 2013 in Sport
BURNHAM Ramblers will create history this season – and hopefully for all the right reasons.
Boss Keith Wilson says his team’s campaign can become either their best or worst ever.
The Leslie Field side are on the verge of something special.
They are five points clear at the top of the Essex Senior League table following Saturday’s 3-1 success at Sawbridgeworth and also through to the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy final, after beating Barkingside 2-0 on Monday night.
With a League Cup semi-final against the same opposition still to come, there is every chance three pieces of silverware could soon be gleaming in the club-house.
Wilson is refusing to get carried away but said: “I’m proud of the boys for what they’ve achieved so far.
“They’ve worked hard, deserve to be successful and as each game passes we’re getting closer to achieving our goals.
“We’ve got a chance of winning three things and that would be an incredible feat.
“I’ve told the boys that when their playing days are over, how great would it be to look back on a treble-winning season?
“It would be the best season either they or the club have ever had.
“But on the flip side, if things don’t go to plan from this great position, it would probably be the worst ever.
“That’s why we mustn’t get ahead of ourselves and why we’ve got to stay focused on what we still need to do.”
