Confidence is high at Burnham Ramblers

First published in Local Sport

BURNHAM Ramblers manager Keith Wilson is adamant he has the squad to keep battling for glory on four fronts.

The Leslie Field side are flying high in third spot in the Essex Senior League, buoyed by Saturday’s 6-3 success at home to Sawbridgeworth.

And they are already safely through to the semi-finals of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Cup, having won 3-1 at Basildon United last Tuesday.

Now they switch their attention to two other competitions in the next few days – Saturday’s FA Vase second-round proper tie at home to Bethnal Green United and Tuesday’s League Knockout Cup quarter-final first leg at Enfield 1893.

Lots of games in quick succession would put pressure on a lesser squad.

But Wilson believes he has the personnel to keep challenging and said: “We set out to win everything and I believe we’ve got the squad to cope.

“Competition for places is really hotting up.

“Everyone is back and available and no-one wants to lose their shirt, so it’s a great position to be in.

“There’s a real buzz about the place at the moment.

“Winning games is a habit, whether they be in the league or a cup, and our sense of togetherness is evident from the way everyone celebrates goals together.”
