Ramblers boss Wilson wants goals from all over the pitch
3:37pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in Local Sport
BURNHAM Ramblers manager Keith Wilson wants his side to hit the net from all areas of the pitch this season.
The Leslie Field side have made an encouraging start to life in the Ryman League, following their promotion to division one north.
Ramblers are still acclimatising to life without prolific striker Brad Hunter, who was joint top-scorer in the Essex Senior League last season as they swept to the title.
Hunter has moved to divisional rivals Maldon and Tiptree but Burnham showed they could cope without him last weekend, following a 3-1 victory at Barkingside.
Sam Mead, Billy Hunt and Charlie Kirby were all on target in the win and boss Wilson is keen to see numerous players contribute on the goal front.
Wilson said: “It’s very important that we have different players chipping in with goals on a regular basis.
“The kind of players who are capable of scoring 30-plus goals in a season cost a lot of money, so goals from different areas is a must.
“It was Sammy’s first goal for the club against Barkingside and aside from a spell against Sudbury, he’s been excellent for us.
“It was a great header – it was one of those where he had time to think about it but he made sure that he put it away.
“Sammy also put through an intelligent through ball for Billy Hunt to score our second and it was good to see Charlie get our third.”
Burnham, who lost 3-0 at AFC Sudbury on Tuesday night, do not have a game this weekend.
They are back in action on Tuesday when they host Cheshunt in the league.
