Scole United enjoying rich run of form ahead of trip to league-leading Heacham
Scole United 'are looking up rather than down' after an impressive start to the new campaign.
The Ransome Avenue-based outfit are currently on a run of six wins from their previous seven outings in all competitions has moved them up to third place in the Fosters Solicitors Anglian Combination Premier Division.
And manager Lee Sturgeon believes the impressive start to the campaign is reward for the hard work that has been put in over recent years.
He said: “I remember saying when I became manager that it was going to be an evolution rather than a revolution. These things take time and credit to the lads because they’ve really brought into what we want them to do.
“The football we are playing has been getting a good response by the people that watch us – some say it’s the best they’ve seen Scole play.
“It’s a small squad, but they’re a fantastic bunch who want to improve and learn.
“There is a great atmosphere and togetherness – that can only help results.
“Scole are used to looking at results below them in the table but right now we are looking up. Hopefully we can continue it.”
Their credentials are set to be truly tested tomorrow when they travel to face league-leading Heacham (2.30pm).
Since the start of 2018/19, Heacham have lost only two league games on their way to numerous promotions and so far this term have a perfect record from seven outings.
“It’s going to be a very difficult game,” said Sturgeon, who saw his side win 1-0 at Acle United in the Mummery Cup on Saturday, thanks to Jake McDowall’s goal.
“It’s going to be a good test to see where we actually are at the moment.
“But we go into every game believing that we can cause any team problems if we perform to our levels.
“The belief is growing each week at the moment and we’ll be using that on Saturday.”
