Barkingside to raise their game

DESPITE an unsatisfactory performance on Saturday, Barkingside boss Tony Fenn believes his side will raise their game for this weekend’s clash with Eton Manor.

They go into the game full of confidence, having won four out of their last five, and currently sit seventh in the Essex Senior League after their recent steady rise.

“We will play a lot better then we did on Saturday and I would like to think we would raise our game against Eton Manor,” said the ’Side boss.

“Saturday will be a tester, but I feel we will be ready and it’ll be a true test of how far we have come in recent weeks.”

“We still have a few players missing, but going into the game, I am confident we can continue our run.”

The Oakside outfit are a much-changed side over the last couple of weeks, with no less than eight players coming and going.

The latest to arrive is striker Danny Sabaroache, who has signed from Justin Gardner’s Bethnal Green United, and could make his debut against Manor at the weekend.
