Slough Town PALS adjust quickly to life in Division One

Slough Town PALS are adapting to life in a more difficult league this season.

After two promotions we knew that life would be harder at this next level and a 3-0 defeat to Northampton Town was followed by a 1-0 loss to Banbury Phoenix, although I was pleased with the improved performance in the second game as we were up against strong and fast opponents, and the lads realised that we must stop giving the ball away in dangerous areas.

We were unable to break down a Marlow team in a scoreless draw despite dominating the play, with two good chances falling to Shawn Harding and Raheem Choudhury.

After changing our system to be stronger in defensive, we beat Bracknell Cavaliers with the only goal of the game thanks to a wonderful solo effort from Paul Wade in his new lone attacking role, and he was the match winner again as we defeated Oxford City by the same score.

Three consecutive clean sheets is encouraging thanks mainly to keeper Awais Khan and there were solid debuts for midfielders Michael McGranaghan and Michael Harding, but we must work on our finishing.

Meanwhile in partnership with Reading Football Club, we are starting four Disability Football taster sessions this month at East Berkshire College which may identify some new talent for our PALS set up with the possibility of starting a second team.
