Walsham-le-Willows unbeaten in six games in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division




Jack Brame does not think many sides can ‘live with’ the quality of Walsham-le-Willows this season, including this weekend’s opponents Haverhill Rovers.

The Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division sides meet at The New Croft on Saturday (3pm), with The Willows in unbeatable form.

They are second only to league leaders Histon on goal difference in their last six fixtures with five wins and one draw to their name.

And the Step 5 captain has been key to that form, with 14 goals from Walsham’s 19 outings in all competitions.

The 26-year-old said: “It’s tough because we’re in a league where anyone really can beat anyone else but we are absolutely flying at the moment.

“If we perform the way we have been this season though, Rovers aren’t going to be able to live with us.

“We have been consistent and we have been producing some really solid performances, there’s some top quality in our team and the belief is there now too.

“We are going into games expecting to win them now – that’s the sort of confidence we have – and we’re really disappointed if we don’t do that.

“A key change this season is that we’ve learnt to grind out the win even when things haven’t gone our way, that’s what happened on Saturday with Gorleston.

“Things didn’t go our way but we managed to get the three points anyway.”

Walsham beat Gorleston 2-1 last weekend to move up to fifth in the league and stretch their unbeaten run to six games.

Brame netted a brace to move him up to fourth in the division’s top scorers behind three players tied on 17 goals.

The player, who has spent most of his career at the club before being made captain at the start of this season, added: “I’m delighted to be scoring so many goals at the moment, definitely.

“But I don’t think I’m the cause of our great form, more a consequence of it, it’s what happens when you believe you can win.

“There’s a great combination of experience and non-experience –there’s a lot of talented youngsters – and I think that it’s the perfect mix.

“A lot of the credit has to go to (manager) Trevor (Newman) obviously, he’s been crucial at building a better link between the youth teams and bringing through the youngsters.”
