A terrible run of ten consecutive league defeats sees the team eight points adrift at the foot of the league, thanks to some woeful defending and only scoring a single goal during this period.
Despite changing our system to try and make ourselves a little more solid, and simply try and steady things, we continued to keep giving the ball away and making soppy final passes.
We have got to do better in both penalty areas otherwise we are not going to get away from relegation, but the winter break may be a blessing for us whilst we organise some friendlies.
This is a group of players who are used to being at the top of the table and we will have to work hard to get out of this dreadful spell.
Our home games at Arbour Park in the South East Regional Event brought no respite, as understandably against stronger national league teams, we lost heavily against Reading, Woking and Hillingdon.
I have no problem if we lose playing the right way and trying to do the right things, but it is the manner in which we are losing that is the most disappointing and embarrassing. On a positive note we only lost the last couple of games by a solitary goal and Michael Northcott made an encouraging start since joining two weeks ago.
Meanwhile in partnership with Reading Football Club, we have started four Disability Football taster sessions at East Berkshire College which may identify some new talent for our PALS set up with the possibility of starting a second team.
