Motormen defender reached milestone in Tuesday’s win at home to Barkingside
Redbridge joint-manager Ricky Eaton has praised defender Stephen Good, who clocked up his 100th appearance for the Motormen this week.
Good reached the milestone during a 4-2 win at home to local rivals Barkingside in the Essex Senior League on Tuesday night.
The defender is in his third spell with the Oakside Stadium outfit, and Eaton says Good has been fantastic for the club down the years, on and off the pitch.
“Stephen has been a great servant for the club and he has always been a player who you can rely on to perform,” said Eaton.
“He is probably one the oldest players in the league now, but he is having such a great influence on the younger players in the squad because he knows so much about the game.”
Against Barkingside, a Jacob Dingli brace and further goals from Sean Kettle and Aron Gordon saw Redbridge make it five games unbeaten in the league.
That run will be tested over the course of the next week, with the Motormen due to host league leaders Barking, but first visit bottom club Haringey & Waltham on Friday.
But with Redbridge in a good vain of form ahead of those fixtures, having won three of their last five in the league, Eaton says his squad fear no one.
“We’re in good form and even with the draws we have had recently, we have had to battle back late on to get something,” he added.
“We’ll look forward to the Barking match, but we’ll first focus on Haringey and know what we are capable as long as we play to out best and don’t overthink things.”
