FIRST ROUND REPLAY
Mildenhall Town 2
Godmanchester Rovers 1
by Kevin Hurst at
Dean Greygoose is looking for more excitement from his Mildenhall Town team at Fakenham Town on Saturday (3pm) after securing their progression in the FA Vase.
Goals from Luke Parkinson and Daniel Brown secured a hard-fought success over Godmanchester Rovers on Tuesday and booked Mildenhall Town a second round match at Stanway Rovers on November 21 (3pm).
But despite being delighted with the victory, Greygoose feels his team has yet more to give in the coming games.
“We are still a new team and are still developing and it will take time, but I will take them as far as they can,” he said.
“I have come here to win things, either this year or next and I want the boys to play their socks off for the fans and this great club.”
After finally beating Rovers at the fourth time of asking this season, the manager was pleased with the performance of his players but has felt aggrieved by officials in their last couple of games.
He continued: “The squad have shown their worth today, I couldn’t be more proud, I thought we were awesome from start to finish, We shouldn’t have lost a game against Godmanchester before really.
“The referees just haven’t given us anything in those games and we get no protection. That is football I suppose and I may be looking through my rose-tinted glasses.”
Greygoose did enjoy both goals on the night however and praised Brown in particular for his improved game.
“We followed up on chances and got goals. Dan Brown has had to add goals to his game. He works his socks off and I’m chuffed with him as he can be a real handful for opponents.”
Focus now turns back to the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division with Fakenham on Saturday and Greygoose hopes the high effort game he saw from his players can be transferred to the league.
“I will give chances to the squad for Saturday’s game. We need more points on the board as October was a tough month with a lot of injuries as well but we dug deep,” he said.
“I have an honest bunch of lads here and I want exciting games like tonight here for the fans in the future.”
Mildenhall: Pope, Brown, Parkinson, Butcher, Asensi, Kearns (Goddard 83), Enaro, Green, Lampshire, Brown, L Parkinson.
