IT has been another good week for us with two excellent results.

IT has been another good week for us with two excellent results.

On Saturday, all credit goes to Felixstowe & Walton as they made it really difficult for us. We started really, really well and created quite a few chances, which their keeper made some top-class saves.

We were in the ascendancy but then conceded a soft goal and our heads dropped as we went on the backfoot for a bit. We regrouped at half time, but things didn't go to plan and we went 2-0 down.

From then on we were on the front foot for the rest of the game, ran out convincing winners and thoroughly deserved to win in the end. The boys done really well, but we must not give sides a lead - so we must learn from this.

Five goals is a good haul, and it was a good, hard-earned, three points that was well-deserved. There were a lot of good things in the game, but we still have stuff to work on.

Tuesday gave us a break from league action and the chance to progress in the cup. We were the favourites against Division One side Diss, who are a good outfit with a good manager.

We started the game well and got our noses in front as we played some good football. It was 1-0 at half time, but we started the second half a lot slower and they equalised, before we had a player sent off.

But with ten men we raised our game and ended up winning 4-1. All credit to the boys, a good win and we're into the next round of the cup.

There is still some stuff we can work on and things we need to improve on - and we'll continue to do that. Hopefully there will be another big crowd to get behind us for the Harwich & Parkeston game tomorrow.

We are at home, we're unbeaten - but this record is there to be broken. We've made a great start to the season but it's still early days.

We're looking forward to the next game and while we stay unbeaten every side will be wanting to be the first side to beat us. We have a free week next week and have a bit of a break from league action as we put some hard work in at training next Tuesday and Thursday.

Gary McGee and Neil Plaskett are both improving, and were in the squad on Tuesday, while Craig lewis has got some minutes on the pitch under his belt.

Andy Reynolds turned his ankle on Tuesday, but should be fine after treatment for tomorrow's game. Matty Potter is improving slowly and things are looking good as we keep trying to be consistent.
